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.
