DIY Chalkboard Mason Jars for Condiments

I love summer bbqs. There’s just something about them that makes me excited! I can’t wait until we live in a house with a large back patio so that we can have bbqs all summer long. Until then, we’ve just got our small patio but that’s okay.

I brought the sun in with our DIY placemats and I added one of our mason jar vases with some pretty flowers to the table but there’s one thing you may have noticed I didn’t give you the tutorial for last week, because I planned on giving them this week.


These DIY Chalkboard Mason Jars for Condiments! They are super easy and fun to make and I hope you love yours as much as we love ours!


Obviously, you’ll need to gather your supplies:



  • Mason Jars
  • Mason Jar Pump Lids (I bought mine on ebay)
  • Primer
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Ruler
  • Chalk
  • And of course, your favorite condiments! (I recommend Ketchup, Mayo and French’s Mustard!)

The first step is to tape off your jars. I decided to just tape off the bottom and paint the whole bottom of the jars.


Then it’s time to line them up and paint them with the primer.


After that, you’ll need to wait about 15 minutes for it to dry. But then it’s time for the chalkboard paint!


Do one entire coat and then wait about 15-20 minutes for it to dry again.

Then do your second coat.

I swear I’d do more paint projects if I didn’t have to wait so much in between the steps.


After that, just put your pump lids on the jars.


You will need to prime your jars before you can write on them. You do this by shading the entire area of chalkboard paint with chalk, waiting a few minutes and wiping it off. If you don’t do this step, the stuff you write will be there forever and that’s no bueno.

AND you’re done! Just fill the jars up with your condiments!
