Canning has been a theme the past few weeks so I’m excited to share these free printable canning labels with you.
It all started with a canning night from iheartcrafting, a Chicago ladies’ crafting group. Hostess Lisa bought large boxes of lovely blueberries, fresh green tomatoes and flavorful apricots from a local farmer’s market.
We all pitched in jars, lids, pots and labels and canned enough blueberry jam, apricot jam, and pickled dill green tomatoes for each of us to take home five canning jars.
Next up: Northern Michigan. I brought these canning labels as a hostess gift for my friend Jennie. She’s been learning all about canning, including raspberry freezer jam that needs no boiling …so much easier and no boiled fruit.
So now that you’re properly in the canning mood, let’s get to the labels! These labels were inspired by the cute label designs by Kendra at A Sonoma Garden.
My revised design involved scanning in a swatch of Anna Maria Small Gathering fabric in citrus…
…then I cropped in close, changed the colors in Photoshop, and typed in the labels. NOTE: Some of the photos say “Dykens Family” but the free downloadable template says “Yummy Homemade.”
You’re more than welcome to use this printable canning label template for free with the request that anyone using this template or design post a comment below. And if you’d like to use Kendra’s original canning labels, be sure to check out A Sonoma Garden.
