I thought I will give a twist on a regular banner using chalkboard paint. I painted the cardstock with chalkboard paint so that the banner can be repurposed as place cards or some other decor the year after. Let's see how.
Trace the leaf template on to the card stock and cut it with scissors.I cut 6 leaves as I decided to spell "Fall" along with two leaves on either side.
 Paint the clear chalkboard paint as per the instruction in the package.The beauty of this clear chalkboard paint is you can change any surface into a chalkboard.How cool?? If you have kids at home you should definitely give this a try.I tested using chalk on the paper without painting , It does work but if you try to erase and write many times it will ruin the paper leaving white marks however if you use chalkboard paint you can avoid that.Plus, you can reuse it .So, I will leave this to you.

Do you like this Chalkboard banner ??What do you think about the reuse ?? Just erase this design and write your guests name in it to use as a place card for thanksgiving dinner. If you don't decorate for seasons , you can do it for birthdays in the same way using birthday cones or cakes instead of fall leaves. Share what you think of this idea in the comments below. I wold love to hear from you.
