Chalkboard Tags

Hi, hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and enjoying the beautiful weather! I've been so busy lately with spring cleaning and getting the garden ready. I thought I will share this small project with you today:Chalkboards tags
 Unfinished wooden ornaments purchased at the craft store:
Spray painted them with chalkboard paint:
They are so versatile and can be used in so many ways around the house. As food and drink labels:
Close-up on the tags:

Here they dress up the tops of my apothecary jars on the kitchen counter:
I used the color accent on my camera to highlight the green  color of the ribbon:
 


Don't they look adorable dressed up in spring colors?
Chalkboard tags come in very handy to organize the clutter in our bathroom:
Sorry about the picture quality here, as there is no natural light in this bathroom:
I hot-glued the lace around the tags and attached them on the baskets with clothespin tied with ribbon.I have open shelving on the bathroom walls, so keeping everything clutter free is a challenge. These tags help keep things organized:
Thanks for your visit!It is always a pleasure to hear from you:) Before I sign off today I would like to express my thanks to Terri @ A Creative Princess for featuring my spring cloches:HERE

Until next time,
~Poppy~

What a clever idea. There are so many uses for something like this - but I love the way you've used the spring ribbon and put them with the lemons.
