“A print that size must have been so expensive!”
I selected the 18 x 24 size and black and white print.
I completed my order online and then picked it up the next day at the store.
What does that mean?
It’s just a fancy way to say, lay a piece of chalk sideways
and completely color the entire surface of the board.
Now that I had my printed sign and my seasoned board,
it was time to move on to the next step.
blank back side of my print.
Then I carefully flipped the paper over and placed the chalk
colored side on top of my chalkboard.
I secured with a piece of tape on each side of the board.
Then I grabbed a very bright florescent pen and I
started tracing the outline of the words and designs.
Once you are done tracing, carefully lift off the paper.
You should see something like this…
Pretty, cool huh?!
Now the last step takes the longest,
but it will be wroth it…I promise!
I grabbed my bistro chalk marker…
and started tracing over my chalk lines.
When I finished, this was the end result…
A simple way to get a professional looking chalkboard sign.
Any size and any style.
Even if you have a chalkboard wall, this same method would totally work.
The really beauty about this project…it only cost me $1.87 total!
I love the classiness the sign added to my Christmas shelves…
Do you have any chalkboard signs in your home?
