Need to label your canning jars but want to keep it neat and pretty? Here are some free printable canning jar labels!

Free Printable Canning Jar Labels

Each year I do at least 200 jars of home canned produce. Last year we almost made it to 300 jars. That's a lot. After I finish each jar it gets labeled in some way and put away with all my home canned foods storage.

Normally if it's something that's just for us I just write on the top of the jar the contents and the year it was produced and stick it in the pantry.

But sometimes I'll put together special mixes into jars for later (and I tend to just keep refilling jars after the mixes are made so the same thing goes back in). Some of the mixes I've done are:

Breadmaker Bread Mix
Ooey Gooey Brownies Mix
Pita Pockets Mix
Fajita Seasoning Mix
Taco Seasoning Mix
Hamburger Helper Mix
Hot Chocolate Mix
Hot Roll Mix
Pancake and Waffle Mix
Instant Oatmeal
Cream of Soup Mix

And, of course, all of the mixes in my book!

Those I like to label a little differently. Since they are generally set on a pantry shelf like other foods it's easier to see their front instead of the tops.

And what about gifts in a jar? There are so many fun things I've done like that in the past to give away. Here's a few that I've posted:

Caramel Corn in a Jar
Sugar Cookies in a Jar
The Thankfulness Jar

For those types of things, I like to have a little nice label on, rather than just something to stick on the top of the jar. Maybe you do too?

Hi Merissa,
Dairy allergic reader again 🙂 I was looking at some of your mixes (which is an awesome idea by the way and I”ll be putting some of that up soon), is there a substitute I can use for powdered milk? I normally drink almond milk now but now sure what kind of powdered milk/substitute I could use.
Thanks in advance if you know anything.

I haven’t used these so I’m not sure how they would taste but there is a Powdered Soy Milk and a Powdered Rice Milk.

What size label would you print these onto? These are really nice. Thanks!

I just printed them right onto paper and stuck them on the jars.

Again, I don’t normally post on your site but I DO LOVE all the ideas you send and I don’t want you to ever get sad or depressed because of the few hateful people who respond. You’re beautiful and your children are so fortunate to grow up in a home where love, creativity, and sustainability are evident daily.
