Make Your Own Chalkboard

What You'll Need

  • Piece of wood tree trunk slice
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Painter's tape
  • Foam brush
  • Chalk

How To

1. Grab a roll of Painter's tape and cut small pieces to go around the tree slice protecting the bark portion.  Then apply a nice even coat of chalkboard paint to the wood.  Let it dry for one hour and the re-apply the paint a second time.

2. You will need to wait 24 hours for the chalkboard paint to cure

3. Once 24 hours have come and gone, grab a piece of chalk and rub it all over the paint.  This will help condition the chalkboard so you can write on it!   Wipe it off and your rustic chalkboard easter egg is ready to use!  You could use a sawtooth picture hanger to hang it on your wall or even superglue a strong magnet on the back and hang it on your fridge. Or just place it on a wire plate holder and keep it on your counter.
