When your out of chalk paint! No problem, you can make your own homemade chalk paint like I did for these cute bottles and tin cans. You can make your own chalk paint in whatever color you desire with one ingredient found in most households.
Recently I ran across some bottles/jars over at “Ragged Bits” and fell in love with them, and had to make my own. One problem, I didn’t have any chalk paint in the colors that I wanted. If you’ve bought chalk paint before then you know it’s pretty expensive.

How To Make Homemade Chalk Paint
So I compromised and made my own homemade chalk paint, this way I can make it in whatever color that I want.
So I played around with it till I got the consistency I was looking for, which came out to about 2 tablespoons of acrylic paint, and 1 teaspoon of baking soda, mix well. I just mixed a little bit because each bottle was going to be a different color, and I didn’t want any leftover.
I then added a coat of Mod Podge (affiliate) for protection, and when that dried I added a piece of jute around the top of each bottle and can.
I love how my homemade chalk paint bottles and cans turned out. Do you have a homemade chalk paint recipe?
