Easy Christmas Chalkboard

 
 You can use thin scrap wood for this project.
 
Paint with flat black paint.
 
If you don't have any thin scraps you can get a Mini Chalkboard
 
at the Dollar Tree. The Chalkboards are 6'' x 8''.
 
They are made of Masonite and they are double sided.
 
 
 
I drilled small holes at the top of Chalkboard and used Jute to make a hanger.
 
 
 
 
 I used a wet sponge brush with just a drop of white acrylic paint
 
to give a whitewash effect.

 
 
 
The ribbon that I used was 5/8" wide.

 
 
 
 
I had these chenille stems on hand. You can find these at the Dollar Tree
 
12 stems for $1
 

 
 
I just looped ends together to make a mini wreath shape.
 
 

 
 
I used a 4'' piece of ribbon to cover the connection point,
 
then flipped the wreath over.
 
 

 
 
 
Then used hot glue to attach to the board.
 
I cut another piece of ribbon about 6 " to make a small bow.
 
Attach with hot glue. 
 
 
 
You can use a chalk marker or paint pen to add your sentiment to center of wreath.
 
 
Here is one finished. It took about 5 minutes to make!
 
So....of course I made more. Until I ran out of chenille stems.
 
 
 
These are ready for the Craft Show!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm sorry if it's too soon to think about Christmas, but I wanted to share some of the things
 
I am working on this week.
