Glass Containers for Make-up, hair accessories...

I know that everyone uses chalkboard paint and that some people are tired of seeing it.  But really, why wouldn't we use it?  It helps organize us, lable things...it's just great stuff.  So in saying that, I present my latest little craft.  I had these glass jars for MR.P and my wedding.  We filled them with our favorite candy for our guests. 

MR.P's fav - He loves the skittles!


My fav - I can't get enough!  Although, trying to lay off because of the holidays :(


So I decided to use them as flour and sugar containers.  And you know what?  Never really used flour and sugar all that often :( I am a terrible cook.  So I cleaned them out this weekend and decided they needed to be used more.  I taped them up with painters tape and gave it the old chalkboard paint make over + some string.
Here's how they turned out!  Nice, clean, and organized.

These are in our bathroom.  We have black and white checked flooring so I think they add a nice touch!


I needed a better place to put my make up and hair stuff.  This works out perfectly!  Much less crowded.  And the good part is I can change the use later if I want since it's chalk board :)

Any fun projects y'all have done lately.  I'd love to see!

I'm getting ready to do something similar for my craft room using those exact containers! We also did a candy bar for my daughter's wedding. It was a big hit!

Very very clever! I love it. And I love gummy bears too - dealt with my first cavity last year as a result of those little things!

Cute idea - I use those same containers for markers and crayons, but maybe I should add some chalkboard paint. I love it.
