Chalkboard messages are all the rage! How beautiful are these chalkboard vignettes (courtesy of pinterest)?:
So, why make this DIY non-chalkboard? Three reasons:
1) You can easily customize the frame & background to coordinate with your decor.
2) The dry-erase nature of this board makes writing easier and way cleaner than traditional chalkboards.
And finally: 3) If DIY projects had a difficulty scale of 1-10, this project would be a 1 (super easy!). No paint or tools necessary here.
Step 1: Buy (or repurpose) a cute picture frame. I purchased the white one from Michaels at 40% off, plus an extra 25% off with coupon (whoo hoo!). The black frame is from Hobby Lobby (they have 50% off sales every few weeks).
Step 2: Select craft paper (scrapbook paper) with your desired pattern. I love the rustic turquoise wood pattern! For the black frame, I selected a blackish paper that resembles chalkboard.
Step 3: Crop the paper to fit in your picture frame, and insert it under the glass.
Step 4: Write your desired message on the glass with either dry-erase marker, or erasable chalk marker. Change it as often as the mood strikes you 🙂
