2 Chalkboard Paint Crafts

Chalk is the bomb. I'd have a whole chalkboard wall in my home if I could! I love having the ability to use and reuse a surface so many times and in so many different ways. I bought a tiny tube of craft chalkboard paint a few weeks ago and have already had so many ideas as to how to use it. Most of them have come from this article I saw about 33 things you can turn into a chalkboard. Such cute ideas! Next up is definitely #17, the chalkboard wine glasses. I always manage to loose my glass when I have people over. Well no more.

Here are a couple DIY chalkboard projects I've tried that are perfect to use in your home when guests are over or to give as holiday gifts!

1. DIY Rustic Chalkboards
I love this idea that I saw back in the fall on our Wayfair blog. This is a perfect fall/winter chalkboard for serving drinks, dishes, a full menu, or just to use at a birthday party like we did!

What you need: wood slab, chalkboard paint, foam brush
Steps: Cover the face of the wood slab with the paint (I did 3 coats). Let dry and use!

2. DIY Chalkboard Cheese Trays
These are awesome for when you are serving multiple types of cheese (like I always am). The smaller version also makes for a perfect little gift.

What you need: Cheese board or cutting board, chalkboard paint, painter's tape, foam brush
Steps: Outline the area you'd line to paint with the painter's tape (I opted for a banner shape). Then just paint, let dry, peel the tape off, and write!
Loving chalkboards as much as I am? Check out this amazing Pinterest board I got lost in for a solid hour (maybe two) or these other chalkboard paint ideas from HGTV.

Happy chalking!
