I also used 4" x 6" chip board to go behind the design to give it some support. This is optional.

    I made 11 total. First start with a layer of chalkboard paint. Paint vertically or horizontally. Let dry for one hour, then apply a second coat in the other direction.

    Wait time specified on Chalkboard paint for drying, then apply your key hook. I used white Command Hooks to save time. This crafty girl likes to work fast! Paint the hooks black to match the chalkboard paint with acrylic paint.

    I went to the computer and designed each person's first initial onto a neat vintage background, then inserted theater masks on the top and bottom. This is the fun part! Get creative and customize for the recipient or yourself!

    You can also design a last initial and use a hook on each bottom corner.

    Cut to 4" x 6" to fit the frame.

    Optional: Glue onto 4" x 6" Chipboard for durability.

    Cure Chalkboard surface by coloring in the paint with chalk, then rub off with a wet towel.

    All done! All 11 only took me a couple hours to complete. These would make wonderful Christmas presents, His and Hers for newlyweds, birthday gifts, co-worker presents.... the list can keep on going. The chalkboard is great to leave reminders for yourself or for anyone in your family.
