  • How to make a chalkboard. Chalkboard Sign - Step 1
    Step 1

    I bought a craft round at Micheal's. Then painted it with chalkboard paint, carefully making a very neat edge. I then drilled two holes in the top and hung it with a nice thick ribbon. You could easily staple the ribbon to the back with a staple gun as well. It took about a half hour from start to finish. And that included the time for the paint to dry! Easy!

    Step 2

    Alex has been using it as a sign for his potion shop. There are quite a few others on my list who are going to get some version of this beautiful (and useful!) project for Christmas. I was thinking for a mama to hang in the kitchen for grocery lists, or a teen girl for her notes, or a little one wrapped up with a whole box of chalk to color with....

    The possibilities are endless with this blank slate. ( Pun completely intended. ;) )
