Allow both the frame and the backing to dry completely before putting them together. I picked up a few chalkboard markers from Target’s dollar section and began to write my favorite Christmas sayings. I love them all so it was hard to decide but the beauty is you can change them whenever you like.
Our living room tree is filled with framed Chalkboard ornaments. I had a vision of white and black. Handmade Pom Poms, White Lights, Snow filled ornaments, and of course white pom pom trim as the garland. I envisioned beauty and simplicity.
I stopped at my favorite craft store to pick up wooden frames. They varied in price from $.78 cents to a $3. I decided to get a few different sizes and work some magic. These frames were untreated and ready for paint.
Begin by painting the outside of your frames in your favorite shade of white. I choose a winter white. Next use the back of your frame as your chalkboard. You may need to do a light sanding before you begin to paint this. I used chalkboard spray paint.
