I debated about keeping it for a Valentine’s present but here’s how that would go:
I’d make it, we’d be out somewhere, guarantee he’d see something and buy it , then what? How do I know? Almost 22 years of marriage. I know. And first thing he said when I showed it to him was “ I was thinking it needed a sign”.
So for this super easy project you will need :
- A canvas ( this one is 10x10)
- Paint in your choice of color
- Chalkboard paper or you can paint a square or you could use chalkboard vinyl. I found self adhesive chalkboard paper in the kids crafts section at Michaels
- Vinyl cutter or stencils and Xacto knife
Cut my chalkboard paper to 8x8 and even though it’s self adhesive. slapped some Mod Podge on the back to make it extra secure.
On the off chance I’m not the last person in the crafterverse who’s made a chalkboard project, you should “prime” your chalkboard surface by covering it with chalk then wiping off.
This is fabulous! I'll bet hubby loves it. You and me both, love that imperfection! I also know the drill, how he'd go out and buy it before I could make it. You were right to give it to him early! Love your new header, too, by the way!
