I had some extra burlap left from the pleated burlap wreath I made last week so I decided to frame a chalkboard with it.
So. Stinkin'. Easy.
Here's what you'll need.
Step 1: Lightly sand and clean your wood.
Step 2: Squirt a couple of small dollops of the chalk board paint on the wood.
Step 3: Using the roller spread the paint evenly on the wood.
(I did 2 coats.)
Step 4: Take your burlap (you'll need about 2 1/2 times as much the perimeter of your piece of wood) and sew it into a ruffle.
Step 5: Using your glue gun, glue the ruffle in sections to the perimeter.
Step 6: Rub chalk over the surface of your board to treat it and wipe it off when you're ready to write a message.
Did you realize that was less then 10 steps?!
Obviously I forgot to write something deep and profound on mine before I took the pictures, but you get the idea. :)
Burlap: Left over, about $1.00
Chalkboard paint: $3.00 (w/coupon at Michael's and I barely used any of it.)
Wood, chalk, roller, glue gun: Free (already had on hand)
Total: $4 or less
Yay for burlap. :)
