Check it Out! I have been wanting to create a Thankful board ever since the fire and with our first Thanksgiving in our new home, I really wanted to have one on the wall for the holiday. Chalkboards are not cheap, but chalkboard paint is, so I looked around to see what I could turn into a chalkboard with my paint. I don't have much to work with as far as wood goes, but I have a ton of cardboard! I have cardboard in all different sizes, so I found a piece that fit this wooden die cut frame that I have had. I got it on clearance at Jo-Ann's a few weeks back and just wasn't quite sure what I was gonna do with it!
Well using that frame, the chalkboard paint, a white paint pen and a fall flower I made a very cute and functional Give Thanks Framed Board!
I simply cut my cardboard to fit, painted it with the chalkboard paint and then glued it to my frame.
I wrote out my words Thankful For with chalk first so that if I made a mistake I could erase it and then when I was happy with it, I went over it with a white paint pen to make it permanent.
I then hot glued on a fall flower and a few little embellishments to finish it off.
It turned out pretty cute and I can't wait to see what my kids write on it. We sure have a lot to be thankful for this year!
