I had so much fun making Chalkboard Labels recently, that I had to share with you this carved board I picked up thrifting and turned it into, what else, a chalkboard. But this time I included one of my favorite and fast ways to make a cute paper bunting to go along with my new memo board. Let’s get started!
Krylon Chalkboard Paint, love the stuff, one can goes a long way and it’s like $6
The surface you want to turn into a chalkboard, an old piece of wood can work great, and you can also usually have some cut from inexpensive pine boards at your local Lowe’s or Home Depot.
Two screw-eyes also available at Lowe’s or Home Depot, and most craft supply stores.
Sisal rope or jute twine
Various scrap booking papers, stickers, bling etc…
Glue stick and hot glue gun
I used three coats of Krylon Chalkboard paint, allowing each coat to dry well, then slightly distressed the edges of my wood.
I inserted a screw-eye into both top corners of the sign and ran some sisal through the holes, tying it on both sides to make a hanger for the sign. After that I began to decorate my chalkboard by adding an oval metal scrap booking accent tag, and lettered stickers to spell out “notes” and a flower of course.
So I told you that was pretty fast! I was able to put this together while hobbling around on a broken foot (yes please leave a comment telling me I should rest so I can show the kids, and they will dote on me for days on end 😉 and three Little’s running around like there is no tomorrow. If I can do it, I know you can too. I am using mine in my home office to remind myself of supplies I need when I run out. Also positive affirmations like “You can do it, you are fabulous. Now go take a shower”
Thank you so much for crafting with me today, and remember, you are fabulous and I adore you, shower or not. Hugs!
