Hello! It’s been a few months since I’ve been able to participate in a Silhouette Challenge! It’s been a little bit crazy around here! ;) So I am super excited to jump in this month’s challenge ~ DIY Gifts! So make sure you scroll down to find tons more gift ideas from my amazing blogging friends. For my DIY gift I decided to share what we gave all of our neighbors last year. I didn’t have time to blog about it back then! ha! ;) This Chalkboard Countdown is so, so easy to make! You can make a bunch of these fast & quick & for not a lot of money. So keep reading to see how I did it. :)
You’ll need a few supplies to get started:
wood plaque (I found this one at Hobby Lobby for $2.99!)
sawtooth hanger & hammer
First you will give your wood plaque a couple of coats of the chalkboard paint. Let it dry completely. Then apply your vinyl lettering. :) I just used one of my favorite fonts & my Silhouette to make my vinyl decal!
Let your chalkboard cure (or dry) for 3 days. Then rub the entire surface with chalk, & then erase. This conditions your chalkboard & makes it ready to use.
Finally you’ll attach a sawtooth hanger to the back with a hammer. All done! Easy peasy! :) When giving as a gift include a couple of pieces of chalk in a cute fabric bag tied with twine.
Now check out some more DIY gift ideas from my Silhouette blogging buddies. :)
