Christmas Chalkboard DIY


Happy Monday!
Here's a fun, simple DIY I did over the weekend.
Woodland Christmas theme, anyone?


Let's get started
 Supplies needed (all found at Hobby Lobby):
chalkboard paint
small paintbrush
basswood round
ribbon or lace
2 thumb tacks
chalk

1. Painting
paint 2-3 layers of the chalkboard paint onto the round. Let dry an hour between coats. And let dry overnight before using chalk on it.

2. Chalk
 Rub the side of your chalk all over your chalkboard to season it. Here's why

3. Hang
 Use the thumb tacks to pin your lace or ribbon to the back of the wood to create a loop to hang it from.

4. Bask in your amazing craftiness
It's great for writing a little message, drawing a monogram, or a simple holiday doodle to
spice up your wall (and it only costs around $10 to make!)
