Trend Alert: Chalk It Up

7 Months ago by

I’m sure you’ve seen the chalk trend popping up everywhere. It’s taking party and home décor over by storm and we can’t get enough of it! There’s chalkboard craft paint, chalkboard spray paint, chalky finish paint, chalk markers, chalkboard paper, chalkboard signs, chalkboard decals … shall I go on?

The best part is how easy it is to create chalk projects yourself. From containers & pots:

To signs and tags:Garden Party SignCookie Jar Tag

Really though, this look is super simple to recreate. I’ll show you how with this Chalk Painted Watering Can we made for our Spring blooms.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

materials

Step 1

Use the stencil tape to mask off the area of the watering can you do not want painted.

Write desired message on the chalkboard paint with the Craft Smart™ chalk markers. Tip: Use a hair dryer to speed up the drying time.  watering-can

How fun! Have you crafted anything with chalk lately?
