Chalkboard Banner

I recently made this chalkboard banner. It combines the versitility of a chalkboard with a banner. You can erase it and rewrite something new.

Here are instructions for making it:

I found these Chipboard book kits at Michaels. I believe it was in the $ bin. Any chipboard or wood shape will work.

Paint the boards with chalkboard paint.

Once the paint is dry, I "seasoned" each board with chalk. I've always heard that you should do this on a brand new chalkboard so the first thing you write on the board doesn't make a permanent mark.

Rub each chalkboard with some chalk and then erase.

I found this chalk marker. It writes like a paint pen but when it dries it looks like chalk. It can be erased. It is not as dusty as regular chalk.

Write your letters.

Thread a ribbon through the holes on the top of the banner for hanging.

Use and re-use again and again!

  1. Such a cute idea! I have a bunch of those shaped chipboards, but hadn't quite figured out what to do with it. I might have to borrow your idea!
