I am SO ready for spring! I want to wear shorts and capris and go to the park...
So in anticipation of spring I made this fun wreath. PLUS, I made a little chalkboard to go on it, for a fun little message! And I'm including a SUPER easy tutorial so that you can make YOUR own mini chalkboard!
Here were my supplies for my whole wreath:
- Felt (spring colors for spring!)
- Wreath (I had already wrapped mine in yarn)
- 4 Wood popsicle sticks, or craft sticks
- Paint, to match
- Chalkboard vinyl
- Cereal box (or just some cardboard)
- glue gun
I'm only doing a tutorial for the mini chalkboard. If you want a tutorial for the felt flowers, go HERE.
Okay, for the chalkboard, I used two full length popsicle sticks and then broke the other two at about 3/4 length. Then I painted them, like so.
Once they were dry I glued them with my glue gun to form a rectangle.
Next, I used my cereal box to cut out a rectangle big enough to fit on the back of my frame.
Once your cardboard rectangle is cut out, it should look like this. But don't glue them together yet! You need to add your chalkboard!!
Add chalkboard vinyl to cardboard rectangle. Glue to back of frame. Attach it to the wreath (I attached mine with matching yarn.)
Ta-da! Isn't it lovely! And oh-so-springy?!
