Need a special Christmas gift but don't have a lot of cash? This is a great way to make something awesome with little effort! Chalkboards are all the rage right now so making something into a chalkboard is sure to win you points.
I found myself in a pickle recently as I really wanted to make some family members something awesome (always expect a DIY gift from me!) but had no clue what I was going to do. I originally bought this giant letter to wrap in twine and hang with ribbon for a "wreath". I'm sure you have seen those all over pinterest. As I sat there looking at the twine, I had a feeling this wasn't going to go well. I looked to my right and saw my half empty bottle of chalkboard paint. And Voila! The chalkboard letter was born!
Large box letter- $5.99 at Hobby Lobby with 40% off coupon (I use the app)
Chalkboard paint- $3.99 and lasts FOREVER. Or make your own in any color!
White chalk- or colored for a kiddo
Washi tape- I got mine in a two pack from Hobby Lobby for $1.99.
2" Satin ribbon- $2.99 at Hobby Lobby. Lots left over
2.Rub the dried letter with chalk and buff off. This will "cure" your paint.
3.Tape a few pieces of chalk on to the letter with your washi tape and tie with a pretty bow!
Enjoy your masterpiece!
This doesn't just have to be for Christmas. Dress this baby up in funky ribbon or paint with colorful chalkboard paint to make a fun birthday or "just-because" present!
