I've been wanting to paint something with this chalkboard paint that I got a long time ago. Then I wanted something that I could write Bible verses on to help me memorize them, instead of not-so-pretty sticky notes. And then I found this pretty little silver tray at goodwill and it hit me...
chalkboard paint + a silver tray = a simple and sweet little display:)
So here it is.
Supplies: Chalkboard paint, painters tape, sponge brush, drill (if you want to hang it), ribbon or string and chalk
Step one: Tape off what you want to be painted.
Step two: Paint multiple coats, dry in between, I did four, just to cover the design in the middle.
Step three: Remove tape carefully as to not pull any of the paint off.
Step four: Drill your desired size hole in each corner.
Step five: Thread your ribbon through the holes and tie a bow.
Step six: Rub chalk all over it to break it in, erase and write your own message, love it!
Now I just need fancier handwriting:)
This is the hat I knitted for Adeline this winter:)
