Here's what happened to the wreath I bought a few weeks back...
Chalkboards are so versatile. There's a lot of great tutorials out there on how to make a chalkboard. My tutorial isn't great, but I just want to show you how easy it is!
Here's the easiest way to make your own chalkboard. Use an old frame from a thrift store or garage sale...
Have a thin MDF (medium density fiberboard, a type of plywood) board cut to fit the back of your frame. Paint the MDF board with chalky-type paint in whatever color you like.
Note: Lowe's, Home Depot, and hardware stores will usually make free cuts for you when you're buying boards from their store.
The easiest way to hold the board inside the frame is to tap little wire nails into the frame like these. There, you're done!
Memorize this phrase: The answer to everything is canning jars!
Walmart sells a box of white reusable caps for around $3
My favorite way to use chalkboards is as a background for pictures, plaques and things. In this case, I wanted to use this ceramic pig on the wall as a wreath holder.
But friends, let me tell you if I let that side track me, it will be a week before this gets done. For now, the screws will be hidden behind the wreath anyway!
Thanks for dropping by!
