Small Wine Bottle Party Favors

DIY Chalkboard Wine Labels

February 25, 2013 Sarah Coggins

What happens when a friend is planning a party and also follows you on Pinterest? You get random emails asking you to recreate something you just pinned. 😉 Which is how another pin that might have been a “someday” became a quick reality!

DIY Chalkboard Wine Labels

The party was for her husband’s 40th birthday and she wanted to give out small wine bottles for favors. Where I came in – creating custom chalkboard labels to add to the bottles. The tutorial I had pinned was for creating chalkboard images in Photoshop and included free chalkboard backgrounds to download. Easy enough. The catch – the tutorial used hand lettering scanned in. I’ve never been the best at lettering. Possibly could do it if I’d just sketch more. Something I haven’t made a priority in a long time. So, I quickly went in search of some fun, free fonts to try to create something similar.

I used a mix of two fonts one for the numbers and one for the letters (Chalk Hand Lettering Shaded). Played around with text sizes. Added a border. And set up a sheet for her to print onto labels.

With the addition of kraft tags she made, the bottles looked great and certainly were a fun favor.

    Good job, those are certainly unique!! Chalkboard is really popular right now. At first I resisted it but now I'm warming up to it and liking the idea of maybe using chalkboard labels in my pantry so I can use the containers for whatever, not just one particular thing if I run out and get something different.
