Get creative with Chalkboard paint

Last week, I decided to try my hand at homemade chalkboard paint
I had been wanting to buy some for crafty projects for some time now but that stuff is NOT CHEAP!

I made my own for pennies...

(not even joking)

Hubby went to buy the tile grout and Lowes sold it to him for $1 since the bag was opened. 
I have TONS of it leftover.

Here are some ways to get "creative" with chalkboard paint :

(chalkboard pumpkin for Halloween!)

What would YOU make?

Don't have the time to make your own chalkboard paint?

I love chalkboard paint! I bought a tiny can at Michael's for a reasonable amount and painted my kitchen cabinet doors. Its great when guests come over because I can just label where everything is! I might have to try that pumpking though - too cute.

Oh I love chalkboard paint! I've used it on so many things, but mostly as labels.

I am totally going to do this with jars I've been saving and washing for gifts. The lids could totally use a coat of chalkboard paint!

I fill them with sugar and a split open vanilla bean, and leave them put up for a few months, to let the vanilla get through the sugar. Everyone who has gotten a jar of it loves it!
