It’s a quiet weekend around here, so I’m thinking of a million projects I want to tackle. The one bad thing about Pinterest is that I end up with more crafty stuff to do than there is time in a hundred lifetimes. I can only choose one for this weekend, though. And I think it’s going to be turning something into a chalkboard. It’s crazy easy to do–we’ve got a link to a tutorial on our Pinterest Board–and you can make it in any color. I think I’ll go with the standard black/slate for an ever changing art piece in my living room
Chalkboards like these are popping up everywhere! They’re easy to find in shops, they’re easy to make with a little bit of time and a well ventilated area. Regardless of how you track them down, they add a little bit of fun and whimsy to your party (and answer the eternal question of “Is that my drink?”) They offer endless options for personal expression or art work. How about one in a photo booth? Or a cake shaped chalkboard centerpiece? How would you use one?
