These are the chalkboards that everyone is interested in and would like the instructions. They are very simple if you have a Cricut or any kind of electronic cutting machine. This is the one I make for Halloween.
And this is the one that made it on Pinterest. Here is the supple list and the "how to's"
Frame ( I bought mine at WalMart)- select one that has flat, wide sides
Craft Paint & sponge brush- if you want to have a small border of paint around the frame
1) Begin by painting a small border around the frame with paint and a sponge brush. I have marked it off with masking tape and I have done it without marking it off. Let the paint dry.
2) Cut circles on the Cricut using vinyl. I believe I cut 1" circles. Peel off the backing and place them around the sides of the frame.
3) Remove glass from picture frame and spray with chalkboard paint. I bought my paint at WalMart. Spray outside on grass or newspaper. I did several thin layers. Let dry (dries very quickly)
4) Put glass back in frame
5) Add a bow and voila it's finished. ( I would probably use a dab of hot glue to attach the bow)
Add a box of colored chalk and wrap in cellophane for a fun gift! I think a white frame with red and green polka dots would be sooooo cute for Christmas. If you still have questions let me know.
I want to thank everyone again for their interest in this project. Please send pictures of your finished boards and we'll post some of them.
