DIY Painted Jars with Chalk Ink

Looking for beautifully designed glass bottles but are afraid to break the bank? Designing some yourself can be just as fun! My most recent DIY project was a Mason jar transformation using some amazing Chalk Ink Pens, a little ribbon and a whole bunch of imagination.


Ever wondered how brands like Starbucks or even your local farmer’s market signs turn out so beautifully? Anyone who has used traditional chalk knows the lines can never come out as straight and the dust can cause an unwanted effect when designing. Luckily, Chalk Ink pens are the perfect solution. Made for writing on any non-porous surface and only comes off with water, you’ll create the design you want with none of the mess. Here’s how I made mine.

DIY Painted Jars with Chalk Ink

What You’ll Need:

Plain and clean mason jars


A couple of Chalk Ink Pens-they have so many great colors!



Determine what pattern or doodles you want on your jars. I decided to do two different ones.

Begin to paint! Chalk Ink’s pens are unique because they have a fine tip that allows you to make micro-designs.


Let the chalk dry before you touch it or it will smudge. The nice thing is it doesn’t wipe off unless you use water.


When your design is complete, tie a ribbon around the top as a final touch.


Flower vases, art room supply holders, jars for beach glass, the possibilities for these new pieces are endless!
