I've been wanting to put something together for awhile to adorn my now super fun Yellow Door. In the past the only thing I've hung on my door is a wreath during Christmas season, but I love the idea of having something year round. A chalkboard seemed like a great, versatile adornment to carry us through the seasons.
What you'll need:
Metallic plastic serving tray - $1.25 at Dollarama
Chalkboard paintFoam brush
Step 1. Using a foam brush, paint the centre of the serving tray with 2 coats of chalkboard paint, let dry in between according to the directions on the can.
Step 2. Once dry, pierce two holes in the top of the serving tray with a nail.
Step 3. Thread string through the holes and create a loop for hanging. Hang in place on a wreath hook.
Step 4. Attach the The Simple No-Knot Gift Bow or other accessory to add a little pizzazz.
Step 5. After 3 days condition the chalkboard by rubbing a piece of chalk on it's side over the entire surface and wiping it with a dry chalkboard brush or paper towel. Now it's ready to go!
Time for a little front porch sitting...
