When you are looking for craft supplies at the dollar store, you need to have a little bit of vision. Not everything sold there needs to be used exactly as it is sold. Dollar Tree tends to stock season signs that might be a little tacky looking but have a great shape. Just flip those bad boys over and you have a craft shape that serves as a blank canvas for your creativity! I transformed a seasonal sign from the dollar store into this cute mason jar chalkboard in just 15 minutes!

What You Need to Make a Quick Mason Jar Chalkboard
I used a seasonal sign from Dollar Tree to make this chalkboard. Even if the dollar store doesn’t have mason jar signs in stock, you can use this technique for signs of any shape. The chalkboard vinyl is what makes this project lightning fast!

Such a great idea!
I love using the back of Dollar Tree signs to make projects and this mason jar is super cute. How long ago did you find it at the Dollar Tree?
I found it there two weeks ago. There were still signs like this one in stock when I was there yesterday, as well.
