Mini chalk board!

I made one of these for myself when I moved last year, and found my supplies hidden away in my craft bag. I thought I’d share how I did it!

To make one for yourself, you’ll need:
- Chalkboard contact paper (or chalkboard paint)
- Wood plaque
- Self-leveling sawtooth picture hanger
- Scissors
- Small hammer
- Optional: ribbon, paint, stickers or other decorations

Since I used chalkboard contact paper instead of paint, I first had to trim the paper to fit the inside of the plaque. I found it to be easiest to use the sharp edges of the wood to crease my paper and use as a guide to cut. Once trimmed, I affixed the paper to my plaque using the manufacturer’s instructions.

Next, I added my decorative elements: painted the edges, added my washi tape.

When I was satisfied with the way my chalkboard looked, I attached the sawtooth hanger to the back so I could hang it. The ones I used came with tiny finishing nails.

Done! I tied a ribbon to mine to hang on my closet door, but that’s it!

Let me know how yours turn out!
