what about paint markers right onto the glass? but def still keep the twine bow.

OOOH. Or paint a shape with chalkboard paint and then provide chalk. I do not think it will condense thru the paint so it should work ok. Test it out. I am pretty sure other brides have made chalkboard glasses on wedding bee.

They sell jars at Walmart. You can also look up canning supplies and see if there is anywhere else near you that supplies that sort of thing.

Kmart sells them for in-store pick up and Ace Hardware will ship them to a local store for free. Happy mason jar hunting!

Definately the chalk board!  Those are really super cute and chalk board paint is really easy to use!

Hello! I like the idea- we were actually thinking about doing something similar! I recently found a product called etch-it tags. They stick to the mason jar on one side and the guest gets to etch their name, design, etc. into it. It bring me back to the old etch-a-sketch days. It is different and quirky, but may do the trick- then guests don’t have to look for their jar/ glass. They can make it themselves. Here is the link: http://www.etch-it.com/products/ETAG1.html

Specialtybottle.com has amazing mason jar and other bottle prices! And the mason jars are totally smooth which is great for painting on. 🙂

I did the mason jars and bought some chalkboard vinyl from amazon.com and cut hearts out with my cricut.  Then I placed them over the mason jars.  There was a little “bump” on them but I still think they can write on them ok.  I loved the way they turned out!

I would do the chalkboard idea….Guest can either take them home and use them or you can keep them and use them for jams or food storage and use the chalkboard to label when you made or stored it.

We’re doing this with A LOT of our wedding stuff. We bought a buffet for our new home and refinished it for our unity candle table, and did the same with a dresser for the guestbook table. Even our guestbook, bouquet, and a lot of our decor will be given away or reused afterward. We DIY our favors out of lunchbags and cupcake cups, so we could use what was left over.

 

If you really want the tags get a tag shaped punch that’s small enough to stay above the drinks but large enough to write on. The glass will only condensate where the ice and drink is so as long as it’s not filled to the top it should be fine. Or even use glue dots to keep the tags lifted off the glass
