I made these faux chalkboard fall chargers today and I HAD to share them with you. Cause It's Fall Y'all!
I picked these babies up at the Goodwill a while back. I made a Sunflower out of a few of them a few months ago (you can check it out on my website), but I still had a handful left.
Don't mind the straw all over. I was in my "process" of crafting which requires making a huge mess of items I will not even use...it's how I roll.
So, these are plate chargers. Which got me thinking, what if I use plates inside of them for a craft?!🤔
Believe it or not, this is actually thinking BIG for me right now!
I have Mom Brain guys (Don't judge. It's a real thing. Look it up😏).
Craft paint and a small brush would totally work for this step, too.
But, my life revolves around cleaning the house & washing, drying and folding laundry for my crazy huge family.
I'm like Cinderella over here - only older and squishier.
Anywho, spray paint was the fastest method for me.
After the spray paint was dry, I took one of these fun white colored paint pens to make my faux chalkboard pictures on the plates.
I added a pea sized amount of hot glue to the back of the plate to help hold them on the charger. Enough to secure it, but still be able to easily remove the plates if I wanted to change out the "chalkboards".
Anything goes here!
Words, pictures, whatever tickles your fancy, fellow crafters.
This would even be a great craft for the kids - wouldn't these be cute around the Thanksgiving table with turkey handprints and handwritten names by those same tiny hands? Aaaaaah! So cute!
I tied little strings of twine through the gaps of the charger for hanging.
