Part of getting organized means, well, organizing your stuff. (Obviously.) We've been organizing our craft room, which has been so helpful considering we have a LOT of products hanging around. Color coding and specially labeled canisters have made it so much easier to find the art supplies we are looking for right when we need them. What a concept, right?! Pretty jar labels always help, but we didn't want to cover up the stash of products inside the canisters so that we could easily see them when grabbing product. Enter Puffy Paint. It works on glass, it looks fun and it allows our rainbow of canisters to shine like they're meant to. Read on to see how easy it is to make your own!
- Glass canisters (desired sizes)
- Printed wording for canisters (desired font)
- Paper towels
- Toothpick or skewer
Make sure your canisters are clean and dry before painting. Print out wording for the jar labels in your desired font and a size that's compatible with your canisters.
If you're organizing your art supplies by color, choose paint colors for the labels that match. If you're organizing different kinds of supplies, you can go with the color scheme of your room or just go crazy with color! Whatever makes you happy!
Place your printed wording inside of the canisters and tape in place against the inside of the glass.
Trace over the wording with Puffy Paint. Tip: try practicing on a paper towel beforehand to get a feel for the paint. Don't worry, if you mess up while applying paint to the glass, you can always wipe away with a damp paper towel and start over! Use a toothpick or skewer to help smooth out any uneven areas of the paint.
Let the canisters completely dry and remove the printed wording from inside.
How awesome do these color-coded canisters look?! Okay, so getting organized can be fun ... sort of.
