Part of my closet organization includes these awesome water hyacinth baskets
Traditional labels like I used in my pantry labeling project just won’t work with these so I looked for another option. I remembered using one of the Pick Your Plum clip on labels and thought that would be a great solution for the linen closet dilemma.
The problem: I didn’t have any more of them.
What’s a crafter to do when she doesn’t have what she needs: make more!
I grabbed some little wood rectangles and clothespin from Michaels.
Then, I grabbed some of my chalkboard paint and some painters tape. I taped off about 1/4 of an inch all the way around the rectangle and then painted the middle.
I did a total of 3 coats waiting about an hour in between each coat. Then, once the last coat was a little dry, I pulled my painters tape off.
I waited another 24 hours before covering it with chalk to cure it. Then, I got out my wood glue and clothespins to finish them up.
I just put a little bit of wood glue onto the clothespin and attached it to the back of the painted rectangle
They look pretty close to the original
