Chalkboard Dinner Party Drink Stickers

 I'm addicted to chalkboard paint.  I pretty much just walk around my house, holding the can in my hand, and trying to decide what I can spray next.  If it stands still....I've probably sprayed it.  If it doesn't stand still, I've waited until it was sleeping to spray it.  Here is my latest concoction.  I made some chalkboard wine glasses last year, the link is here.  I decided to use the same concept with disposable cups for a 'school days' themed 'thing' I'm doing.  It's just fun.  And I know fun. :No need to comment on this statement.:   I have two cans of chalkboard paint, so if you want to come have fun too, swing by anytime.  Or if you want to make chalkboard drink labels for a party.....I just took some of those sticky address labels I had left over from a shower invitation I sent out. 
 I gave it one quick coat, let it dry...
 ...and went to work labeling glasses with chalk.  Got my glass.  Ready for the par-tay.

I can't believe you just used regular labels to make these. I LOVE this idea. There are so many times that I could have used this. Great idea!

But Christy, I want you use show me other chalkboard paint colors. (You need to read this with me using my 5 year old girl whiny voice) And on a side note, I can't believe you thought of and successfully painted a sticker. I think God bends the laws of crafting for you.

Have you seen at Michaels, or other craft stores, they have chalkboard stickers, it comes in an 8 1/2 by 12 sheet, and you can cut it up any way you like, three to a package for about 3$!
