How to Make Be My Guest Toiletry Jar

- Large jar (1/2 to 1-gallon size)
- assorted travel toiletries
- Chalk spray paint
- Painters tape
Gather new/unopened toiletries and other travel items.
Fill the jar with the toiletries and close lid.
To protect from overspray, use the painter’s tape to cover the jar leaving a large square in the front. Press down the edges of the tape.
In a well-ventilated area, spray the square with spray paint and let dry. Spray a second coat of paint and allow to completely dry.
Apply a small amount of chalk and using fingers, rub the chalk around the paint.
Write BE MY GUEST on the chalkboard and place jar in the bathroom or guest room.
