Instructions to Make Baby Food Jar Organizers:Make sure your baby food jars and lids are clean and dry. Cover your work surface and work in a well ventilated area. Use thin layers of the primer to completely cover the outside of the jars and lids. Don't forget the bottoms of the jars. When you are done with the primer, let it dry completely before you move on.
Once the primer is dry, you need to paint the lids and jars with the chalkboard paint. Use several thin coats so the paint does not run. Wait until one layer is dry to the touch before adding another. If you prefer, you can paint the lid using a different color of paint.
Read your paint can so you know how long your chalkboard paint needs to cure before you can use it. Follow the directions carefully.
Take one of the baby food jar lids and squeeze a generous amount of hot glue onto the top of it. Stick the lid to the underside of the shelf. Repeat this step until all your lids are glued to the shelf. Let the glue cool completely.
Now you are ready to fill your jars and screw them onto the lids. Don't forget to write on the jar so you know what is inside.
