DIY Chalkboard Mason Jars as Escort Cards

We love chalkboard mason jars which are easy to DIY and perfect for spring or summer outdoor weddings. These mason jars are both whimsical and functional: show guests to their seats and offer a personalized drinking glass. Genius!

These jars may take a bit longer to make than a traditional escort card, but the results are (in our opinion) well worth it. You can incorporate this idea into your bridal shower or bachelorette party, too, which typically have less guests = less jars to make. Make sure you have plenty of yummy lemonade, punch, or other brightly colored drinks (use one of these) nearby so guests can fill them up right away.


Mark off an area of the jar with masking tape and apply two coats of chalkboard paint. When dry, peel off tape and write your guests’ names (or any message you wish) using a fine tip chalk marker. We recommend these chalk markers which dry quickly and write like a pen. Voila!

Happy Planning!
