Easy Chalkboard Welcome Sign

30 Minutes

I found a chalkboard in the Target dollar section, and with stencil and some chalk turned it into an easy and beautiful welcome sign for my home.

I found this framed chalkboard in the Target dollar section, and you could use any chalkboard you like for this project.

I started by seasoning the chalkboard. This means coat the entire chalkboard with chalk. This will prevent the chalk from sticking and make it easy to erase.

After filling it with chalk, I erased it.

I placed my Plaid Folk Art Welcome Stencil onto my chalkboard and secured it in place with some painters tape.

I colored in the stencil with chalk.

The great thing about this project is how versatile it is. Think about all of the possibilities with the holidays, season, and stencils this simple idea could create.

Once the entire project was covered, I carefully lifted the stencil and painters tape off the chalkboard.

      Chas: Not all things in the dollar section are $1. So this was actually $1? What a deal! I have a question about the chalk you used. Are there different grades? I bought some at Walmart and I can barely write with it. lol
