Step One: Pour out your chalkboard paint (only pour out a little at a time, it dries quickly depending on the temperature around it)

Step Two: Paint your first coat of chalkboard paint on your jar in any shape that you like. Wait 10 minutes before moving on to step three.

Step Three: Repeat step two. Keep on repeating that step until the paint on the jar is opaque.

Step Four: (OPTIONAL) While waiting for your chalkboard paint to dry, paint a boarder around the chalkboard shape with the color of your choice. I chose to make my boarder sloppy for a unique, handcrafted look. Then I took my cording and wrapped it around the top of the jar.

Step Five: To make it a quote jar, write some quotes on ripped pieces of paper and put them in the jar.
*Gift IdeaInstead of filling
the jar with quotes, fill the jar with candy or little treats as a little party favor or gift!
