The Best Blogger Craft Ideas 2014Visit Tammy at Tutorials for Crafty Hands.

Change the look of your space in no time at all. Create your own Upcycled Chalkboard Plaque using an old wooden wall handing and some chalkboard paint. Make your own chalkboard using paint and add an inspiring phrase to make the piece extra special and meaningful. This is a great homemade gift idea - be sure to take one along to a housewarming party.

You can find this project, as well as many other fabulous blogger projects, in our new eBook, The Best Blogger Craft Ideas 2014:  Decoupage, Sewing, Jewelry Making, and More free eBook.  Download your own free copy today!

Materials:

  • Plaid Folk Art Chalk Paint
  • Martha Stewart Crafts Paints
  • Martha Stewart Crafts Paint Daubers
  • Plaid Folk Art Painting Stencil
  • White gel pen
  • White chalk pen
  • Upcycled wooden wall plaque
  • Masking tape

 

Instructions:

  1. Mask off any areas of the plaque that you do not want to paint.
     
  2. Apply two to three even coats of chalkboard paint to the front of the wooden plaque. Let each layer dry well before adding another.
     
  3. When paint is dry, tape stencil in place on the plaque.
     
  4. Use paint daubers to apply paint to the plaque through the stencil. Try to use a small amount of paint at a time to avoid seepage under the stencil. Use a pouncing motion to apply. Build the color in layers.
     
  5. Remove the stencil and allow the painted design to dry well.
     
  6. Use a white gel pen to accent the painted design. The gel pen will mimic the look of chalk and will tie in the motif to the chalkboard area.
     
  7. Allow the chalkboard paint to cure according to directions. Once it has cured, use chalk or a chalk pen to add a sentiment.
