So the whole world has been obsessed with chalkboard over the past year, including myself. I’ve also gone totally noir this Christmas and decorated all things in black and white. So OBVIOUSLY, I had to incorporate a little chalkboard, with a little artsiness, with some crafty bits and share it with you lovely people.
It’s pretty stinkin’ easy and you can really go any direction with it. The kids can personalize gifts with their own artistic wonders, you can get your van gogh on, and the hubs can get all HGTV with you as well. Its pure family fun…. Truthfully, this will probably end more like a project with you, your paint pen, and a glass of wine, and I don’t see anything wrong with that. Make those gifts look good girl!
I snagged some black butcher paper, and a white paint pen and got to work! I wrapped the presents as if it were normal gift wrap, and dove right in. Need decor ideas? Pinterest baby. I would suggest practicing on a piece of scrap paper before you go for it because you might need to get familiar with how the paint pen writes. My favorite thing about this little project is that you can personalize each gift for that particular person and it will be completely unique. Good luck and have fun!
