For the chalkboard, I used a scrap of hardboard we had left over from some other project. I cut it to the correct size with a jigsaw and painted it with chalkboard paint and a sponge brush. Once it was dry I used a staple gun to secure it into the frame.
I added some eye screws to the back to thread my ribbon through for hanging. I cut these blue swirly things on my Silhouette out of vinyl and applied them to the board. This was summer time so I added this bright ribbon. A very simple project!
This is the old color of my door. Isn't that a cute little boy?? He is MINE!
This is the new color of my door. The swirls got removed in October when I added some spiderweb vinyl. After that I meant to add something Christmas-y but never got around to it.
This is what is on it right now. See, I didn't space the words well and instead of re-doing the whole thing and trying to be a perfectionist I just let it be. This is all chalk marker.
I just love this sign. I switch out the ribbons for seasons and holidays. I write things on it about holidays, birthday, countdowns, or just how I am feeling. I do keep it positive and refrain from writing "Today sucks!"
It is a fun way to connect with the neighbors. I see them walk by and look at my door to see what is written that day. It is fun!
I will be listing one or more of these for sale for thsoe who don't want to make one themself!
