Make It :: Chalkboard Sign

diy chalkboard

Looking for an easy fall project? Make this rustic chalkboard sign for a fun fall greeting. Chalkboard paint can reinvent almost any surface and create a fun, writable space for adults and children alike. Here, I’ve turned a piece of round wood into a fun fall sign that is now displayed in my kitchen.

Apply a thin and even coat of chalkboard paint on the surface of your desired sign.

After the first coat dries, repeat for a second coat. Be sure that your sign is all the way dry before you write on it with chalk.

Once dry, create your message using chalk.

This is a simple project for you and your children on a rainy day in. You can create as many of these chalkboard signs as you’d like and you can erase and draw new greetings to go with each season.
