little ones…

CHALKBOARDS!

 

I went home  right away and I took out my chalkboard paint…

 

I was ready to get this party started ;)

 

 

I gave the platters enough coats of paint to cover the entire surface perfectly…

 

They looked awesome already!

 

 

After they dried I prepared the surface spreading chalk all over and wiped it off with a clean sock…
The sock worked perfectly!

 

 

For the next step I used a drill to make two holes in each platter…

 

Do this slowly… I don’t want you to get hurt!

 

 

  We were ready to decorate the platters with some chalk…

 

My kids gave me the ideas for the drawing…
How cute is their sketch…?
…Yes, I am a copy cat!

 

First I used white chalk to outline the drying…

 

 

…and after I used some color chalk  since my little assistants thought that

 

it would look better…

 

You must ALWAYS trust the pros!

 

 

At this point we just had one more step… to connect all three platters.

 

You can use fabric or ribbon among some other thing for this step!

 

 

We love Halloween so much
that we hanged it up right away…

 

 

Here is how it looks with some color fabrics
for the connections….
