Mini Chalkboard

Create a fun decorative mini chalkboard for your home that you can easily customize for different occasions. Whether you want to list a recipe, create a memo for groceries, or write an inspiring message, these are a fantastic addition to your home decor. You can use any size wood slice you want to make your chalkboard but make sure it’s big enough to display your intended messages. Paint the front of your wood slice with chalkboard paint and while you’re waiting for it to dry, brainstorm ideas of what you want to put on it. Depending on what you want to write on the wood slice, you can either freehand or create a stencil to create a more flawless design. Just use regular chalk on the wood so you can easily rub it off and write new and different messages.
