Polka Dot Chalkboard Frame

Before you buy your next gift, consider trying some chalkboard paint craft projects instead. A Polka Dot Chalkboard Frame from Heidi Borchers can be quickly customized with meaningful words and phrases. Get the kids involved with this fun project - it's appropriate for all ages.



  • Aleene’s Tacky Dot Rolls
  • Wood frame
  • Wood shapes
  • Acrylic paint – colors of your choice for frame and polka dots
  • Paint brush
  • Pencil with eraser
  • Chalkboard paint (brush-on or spray)
  • Chalk
  • Sandpaper
  • Wax paper
  • Paper towel



  1. Paint wood shapes with chalkboard paint according to package directions.
  2. Paint frame with base color. Let dry.
  3. Pour small puddles of paint onto wax paper.
  4. Dip eraser into first color of paint. Press onto frame to create dot. Dip into paint again to create next dot. Re-dip into paint each time. Wipe eraser clean with paper towel before changing to new color. Let dry.
  5. To prepare new chalk pieces for use, sand the end of chalk with sandpaper. This removes the hard coating. To “prime” the pieces, gently rub chalk over wood shapes and wipe away the chalk.
  6. Write desired words onto pieces.
  7. Apply Aleene’s Tacky Dots to back of shapes and press in place on frame.
