Thanksgiving Chalkboard Art

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Hi friends, I have this Thanksgiving Chalkboard Art sign I made and displayed on my mantel that is so easy to make for any holiday.  



You can see the sign I decorated on my mantel with my pilgrim statues.  I also have my crocheted pumpkins I made too.  In case you still want to make and crochet the pumpkins you can see the post HERE.  To go directly to the pattern for the crochet pumpkins you can go HERE.




I bought the pilgrim statues many years ago when I worked in New York City.



I also have displayed little plastic pumpkins and they too are from a dollar store along with the leaves.



CHALKBOARD ART

To make the chalk board art you need:

1 art canvas - any size
1 can Krylon chalkboard paint - color 807 Black
newspaper to lay on floor
chalk

Directions:

Take newspaper and lay on the floor (so that you don't make a mess).  Take your canvas and spray paint it 2 to 3 times.  Next let the canvas dry throughly.  When dry you are ready to make your chalkboard art. 

I hope I have inspired you to make one too!

  1. That is a very nice display. I need to freshen up my mantel. Maybe this will inspire me. I have two real slate chalkboards in the house that could do with some Thanksgiving chalk art!
