@NeoMatrix406:  if you used just regular contact paper and then put sticy laminate on the back (sorry not sure of the name…maybe contact paper?), it would hold up fine.

I use that stuff all the time for work stuff (I work with kids) and I just buy it at the dollar store.

I’m guessing they would get pretty waterlogged.

I would suggest maybe doing something like that, except with a little chalkboard instead, so it’d wooden and wouldn’t get all soggy. And you could still wrap it around all cute like that.

Laminate will work, also you can spray/paint with “triple thick” sealer.  I have used signs sealed with this craft sealer on punch bowls that have even ended up in the punch (crazy halloween parties) and the sign stays intact.  

An office supply will laminate, or pretty much any craft store will have the Triple Thick sealer. 

Very nice display. 

Just out of curiousity, how large are they (gallons) and what was the rough cost?

Or cheap it out and layer packing tape on the back!

You could also buy waterproof paper. It’s called “Rite in the Rain”. You can get in online or at some outdoor stores like REI, though for bigger sizes I suggest getting it online. The stuff is great and you can laser print on it and it won’t come off when wet, and the paper won’t disenigrate/tear when wet either. I’m an aquatic ecologist and I use it in the river for field notes/labeling samples etc.

@abax:  I love Rite in the Rain and how you can literally write under water on it!  I’m a wildlife biologist 🙂 

OP, I love those jars.  I think I might have to buy a couple since we don’t have those to rent in the boonies…

I like the chalkboard idea, but that’s only because it’s an inexpensive, easy solution that would go along with your rustic look. I also vote for the Rite in the Rain paper–as an avid geocacher, I know how amazing this paper is!

I’m probably going to use black contact paper and stencil on the title using a white sharpie paint pen…I’m not 100% decided yet though
