How to Make Your Own Labels for Honey
You can make your own labels for packaged honey. (humblebee bumblebee insect image by Pali A from

If you are a beekeeper, your home-grown honey can be sold or given as appreciated gifts in glass jars usually used for jam making or preserves. The honey should be labelled with a date of packaging and could include information about the beekeeper and the location of the bees. A rubber stamp sporting an image of a bee or flower can be combined with a clear acrylic alphabet stamp kit to make your honey jar labels.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Rubber stamp of a bee or a flower
  • Acrylic alphabet stamp kit
  • Acrylic block
  • Ink pad
  • Scrap paper
  • Card stock
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Hole punch
  • Thin ribbon

  1. 1

    Measure a 4-inch square on the scrap paper with the ruler, and draw the 4-inch square with a pencil. Press the bee or flower rubber stamp on the ink pad. Press the stamp on the scrap paper within the square without rocking the stamp. Repeat, practicing until your bee or flower image is clear and not smudged.

  2. 2

    Position the label lettering stamps on the acrylic block, which will let you view the placement of the honey label letters while stamping. The letter stamps will adhere to the block. Practice stamping the honey label lettering on the scrap paper.

  3. 3

    Cut the card stock to a 4-inch square label, using the ruler and scissors. Stamp the card stock with a bee or flower image and honey label lettering, leaving a small empty area in the top left corner of the label.

  4. 4

    Make a hole in the top left hand corner of the honey label by pressing the label between the upper and lower portions of the hole punch.

  5. 5

    Thread a 1-inch length of ribbon through the label hole and tie the honey label around the jar of honey.
