I always like to make a new ornament for the tree each year, but I also make them as gifts for my friends and family. I like the idea of sharing something handmade, probably because I have been doing it since I was a child. I hope that since I have matured, my handmade ornaments have also. I like the idea of passing on something that I enjoyed crafting, but I don’t want it to end up looking like something only a mother would love!
These chalkboard ornaments are made from thin wood ornaments and painted with chalkboard paint. Once the paint is dry, it’s totally up to your chalk art skills to design something for the lucky people on your gift list.
Draw on the ornament with chalk as you would a chalkboard, and erase with a dry cloth. If you prefer no chalk residue on the ornament after erasing, just wipe with a damp cloth and it will be back to the original colour.
- Wood snowflake ornaments
- Chalkboard paint
- Plastic lid
- Small roller brush
- Small foam paint brush
- Lay the ornaments out on a protected surface.
- Stir/mix chalkboard paint according to directions and pour some onto a plastic lid. Roll the roller brush through to apply it and roll paint onto one side of the ornament. Use the small foam brush to smooth out the surface and set to dry.
- Paint two to three coats on each side of the ornament, allowing it to completely dry between coats.
- Hang on your tree, or attach to a gift and include a special message to the lucky recipient!
