Lol not {that} crafty



I know stores sell them, but they all say online only.
They cost like $2-$8 on some sites but shipping is $6...
And the chalkboard paint has to dry for a few days, then you use e side of a piece of chalk and shade all over the paint and leave that for two days then wash it off and it's ready to be used...

Hmmm.



I'd make the chalkboard part, and then get a whole bunch of cutesy things to glue around the border instead of buying a border. That'd be pretty easy! :D

hmm...the only thing i can think of doesn't sound super easy. paint a piece of wood with chalkboard paint and then use the wood to replace the glass/backing of a picture frame...

It's really easy to take the innards out of a picture frame! Another good idea :D

Oh, wow! That's really adorable!



That'd be another great idea-- just get a cool shaped piece of wood and put the chalkboard paint on it....



Oh, man. Now I wanna make a chalkboard. :lol:

That's now where I found it... but you just glue crayons to the top of a canvas and melt 'em! I used a hair dryer, but there's other ways I think. :D

Yes....... though she HATES the sound of the hairdryer, so she got fed up with that after a few minutes. haha. But otherwise, yes.



We did one with all the fun crayon color names facing out so you could read em. :D
