Hi everyone, it’s Andrea from The Cottage Market. I promised you a quick and easy Halloween Project next time we met and that is exactly what I have for you. Today we are going to make a festive and bewitching Halloween Chalkboard DIY Project that I hope you enjoy. Let’s get started!
First we will need: A piece of wood (you can choose your size) but I used a 7 inch X 12 inch board, a frame…I used an Ikea Frame…they come in 3 packs for $1.99…such a bargain, a sanding pad, chalkboard paint (your favorite brand), some embellished corners you can find in your craft store, paint for the frame, a paint brush, hot glue, your favorite Halloween Image…you can find this little cutie right here, and of course scissors.
Sand your wood really good till it is nice and smooth all the way around.
(Please note that is not my hand : ) lol!!!! Now give your board 2 good coats of chalkboard paint…allowing coats to dry in between.
Now it is time to paint your frame…any color you want! I give it two coats and sand in between coats.
Now trim your print to fit the inside of your frame.
Now simply glue your embellishment corners to each corner…including the 2 bottom corners on your chalkboard. Now add your graphic.
Now it is time to assemble the project. I simple glued the frame to the top portion of the board…by using a 7 inch wide frame you will get a perfect fit with a 7″X12″ board! Now all that is left to do is write those lists or messages!!!
You can use this method for any style chalkboard…one for the kitchen…one for the kids room…the possibilities are endless and results are fun and fabulous and you can make it in less than an hour! I will be back in another 2 weeks with some more Halloween Fun! Till then if you would like to say hi…I will be hanging out at The Cottage Market and would love to see you any time!
