I made some and I bought a frame and print at a tag sale and just used the chalkboard spray paint over the print and removed the glass. I made smaller ones using regular picture frames and using the pain on the paper liner in fact. It worked great.

I think alll you’d need to do was get a frame, paint the glass with chalkboard paint, and write on it with chalk…

Yes! Me and my mom did these. I’ll go through my e-pics and see if I can show you how they turned out.

We actually made our own frames! We went to Michael’s, and they had really pretty long/thin pieces of engraved wood that we cut at an angle and put together to make a frame. We then glued the frame to the outermost edges of our chalk board.

To make the actual chalkboard itself, we took a thin square of plywood, and sanded both sides until they were very smooth. We then painted both sides in turn with chalkboard spray-paint.

Now let me go find that picture for you!

@IUrebekah3RT:  You can also buy chalk pens at the craft store that look like chalk but don’t smudge. Handy if you have to transport your signs.

@IUrebekah3RT:  Just make sure you get the grammar right lol. It kills me when I see pics where the writing on the chalkboard has a spelling/grammar mistake. I’ve seen it soo many times.
