I’m not normally the most organized person in the world, I have to admit. Poor Steve could tell you stories! Labeling my world isn’t the first thing I think of when I want an activity to fill a Saturday afternoon! But there is obsessive organizational labeling, and then there is having fun and making decorative DIY labels for your home, and that’s what we have for you in this post… DIY free printable labels, and a couple of DIY label projects too! These projects and printables are cute, fun, decor, free, and yes… I am going to use them, even in my frantic, “I don’t have time to put the cap on the toothpaste” type of days! (I actually really do put the cap on the toothpaste, but only ’cause it’s connected to the tube. :)) So it’s time for those of us organizationally challenged individuals to embrace a little structure, and hey, these are fun, so we don’t even have to think of it as organizing! And for those of you who were blessed with more organizational ability? Well, just enjoy creating for your space.
Free Printable Labels
From ‘Eat Drink Chic‘, these DIY apothecary printable labels are free to print out, and have cottage/vintage appeal. You can use these on colorful glass bottles as vases, as Amy suggests in her post… or as perfect vintage decor any where in the house…
From the ‘World Label‘ blog, these pantry labels are colorful and fun, yet still have that vintage vibe… Seriously, Good Will is getting a visit from me to find glass jars and containers to store everything pretty now!
Want blank labels, so you can organize any way you want? ‘Style at Home‘ has elegant printable labels in different colors with plenty of space to fill in… How about using a gold Sharpie to fancy it up?
Our next one is from ‘BHG‘. these free storage printable labels cover every room and need in your home! Easy! I love the pattern and colors as well… Check out the ones they have for pantry storage, I think it’s time to invest in a pack of mason jars and fire up my printer…
This one I really love. these dictionary definition printable labels from Kristine at ‘The Painted Hive‘ are awesome and this effect is worth a little more effort! All you need is decal paper for your printer, and her step by step…
From ‘Free the Diva‘, these vintage DIY printable labels for the pantry are perfect for a farmhouse style…

DIY Label Projects
‘The Chic Site‘ shows us how to make these washi tape cord DIY labels… who knew cord clutter could be made cute!
Lastly, from ‘Inspired Barn‘ these DIY Christmas box (with directions on how to fold it!) printable labels and cards… had to throw this in, since the holidays are just around the corner and these were just so darn cute! She also has a Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Thanksgiving version. Enjoy!

I liked the idea No 3. My computer room is full of wires and feel irritating with mingled wires during my work. Labeling the switches will make it easier to find any wire.
In the section where you talked about the vintage farmhouse style labels… above the latch lid jars, what kind of glass containers are they called? It looks like a set of old fashioned juice or milk bottles, and I love that look! Would you be able to tell me where I can find them??
I don’t! If you contact the blogger though the link with the jars you are interested in, they may be able to help!
I believe those are called Apothecary jars and you can usually find them at Hobby Lobby or Michaels (or other craft stores) or even ebay.
Often you can find old ones at junk or antique stores or the occasional flea market or yard sale. Good luck!
World Market has a good selection of cool bottles and other sorts of containers.
I love baking and I find those labels very useful. One of my friends loves to eat baked goods and I’m planning to give her a brownie or muffin mix. Customizing gifts is my thing so, I’m so excited for Christmas.
is there any way to download the vintage labels. they won’t download for me. tried copy and paste but that doesn’t work. would love to have them but box just doesn’t work for me.
We just checked, and you are right! There is a problem with downloading those files… We will look into it and get back to you if we find a fix!
Love these. One tip: If you have an electronic cutting machine, like a Cricut Explorer or a silhouette Cameo, you can save these as .svg file and cut them out that way
Hi, the vintage labels link directs us to a Box.com page but it’s not possible to download the file. Can you help please? Thanks
It isn’t our project so we can’t fix the problem, but we are working on finding a work around or a new project for you! Thx for letting us know!
I tried leaving a message on that blogs page. Several folks have said they couldn’t get them to download but there’s been no response from them. They sure are pretty lol Thank you for trying!
Thanks for the labels
Thanks so much for including my dictionary definition canister labels. I realise this is an older post, though it would still be great if you could redirect the source link to here:
The current link is to a site which has sadly lifted my entire project.
Thanks so much.
Hi Kristine! Thank you for bringing this to our attention! We will get that fixed right away! -Kathy
Thank you so much for that :) I really appreciate it.
What kind of paper do I need to print these on? To make them stick?
The office supply store sells printable labels that self stick! Hope that helps!
Wow that looks really very nice thanks a lot for this wonderful post.
