This week we have been working on some Fall/Halloween projects. First up is our chalkboard banner for our Fall Mantle. It turned out super cute and I love how you can switch it up so easily.
Also, check out our new font on our photos for the month of October. My tech guy has been waiting and waiting to do this…so a special shout out to Gman…thanks for all our your help!
My supply list includes:
- Wood plaques
- Chalkboard Paint
The first thing I did was clamp the three pieces of wood together so I could drill the holes all at once. That was the easiest way to make sure the holes were all evenly spaced. Next, I lightly sprayed the wood with chalkboard paint. I did three coats. Once it was dry, I threaded a piece of ribbon through the holes. Finally, I wrote on the chalkboard.
We like how you can change it up with different ribbons or change the message. You could draw candy corns, leaves or pumpkins in the Fall. In December, you could switch the ribbon out and do a Christmas countdown. The possibilities are endless.
