DIY Back To School Wreath


Materials:

Grapevine Wreath


Small Chalkboard


COLORSHOT Rainbow Paint Markers


Ribbon (I used these – Green, Red, Yellow, and Blue)


Glue Gun


FrogTape


Stencils (I used my Cricut, smart vinyl and sticker cardstock to make mine)


Let’s Make A Back To School Wreath:



  1. Gather all of your supplies.


  • You may notice that the ribbon in my supply picture is different from the ribbon I actually used!
  • I had to switch up the ribbon when I realized the original ribbon wasn’t stiff enough to hold in the bow shape I wanted.

2.Decide what you want your chalkboard to say. I wanted mine to be fun and silly!


3.Cut your stencil using your Cricut or other crafting machine – or use a store bought stencil.



4.Paint the frame of your chalkboard using your COLORSHOT paint markers.


  • I used FrogTape on the inside edge of my chalkboard to keep my yellow paint from bleeding onto the chalkboard.

5.Apply bus stencil to center, top half of the chalkboard.


6.Fill in stencil with color from COLORSHOT paint marker.


  • This may take more than one coat.
  • Be sure the tip of your paint marker is really well saturated for good coverage!

7.Gently peel stencil off of chalkboard.


8.Let paint dry! (This is the hard part!)



9.Apply stencil for your words on bottom half of chalkboard.


10.Fill in letters with COLORSHOT paint marker color of your choice.

11.Gently peel stencil off of chalkboard.
