Every family should have a sweets jar in their house for special occasions, (or everyday occasions! LOL) and we stepped ours up a notch with a chipboard scallop tag, Santa style. This would be fun to swap out for holidays, birthdays and etc.

Items needed:

  • Americana Gloss Enamels Glass Chalkboard Paint 2oz - Black
  • Glass Paint Brushes
  • Glass Jar


Using the glass chalkboard paint, I freehanded a label using a SIZE brush onto a pretty apothecary jar.

After letting it dry overnight and baking TIME at 350*, it was ready to write on. I used a chalkboard marker and wrote the words “SWEETS” on the chalkboard label.

To create the hanging “for Santa” chipboard scallop tag I used Cottonball white and painted over the tag. Using a google “deer head silhouette” search I free handed an image in Cocoa Bean brown onto the center of the tag.

I added a little red nose (hi Rudolph!) in Lipstick red.

For a pop of green, I painted the outside scallops Turf Green and freehanded “for Santa” in the chalkboard paint over the deer. Phew! I’ve been so spoiled with DecoArt’s cute stencils that I forgot how time consuming freehand painting can be! ;)

This little sweets jar for Santa goes well with my Christmas mantle and I am excited to refill the treats throughout the season.

Love this idea and did it with my kids. Worried about baking the glass. How long did you bake it at 350? Seems like it would break?
