Materials needed to make your own Chalkboard Place Cards
When I saw these cute little mini easels at Michael’s, I knew I had to have them!
I won’t even insult your intelligence with a step by step tutorial. Simply paint the little square canvases with the chalkboard paint. I recommend 2 coats for best coverage and results. Follow the directions on the label for drying times.
Allow to dry overnight, then cure the canvas by coloring all over it with chalk and then wiping it down. This will help when you start writing on the little canvas.
These little canvases will make great place cards at the grown up table or fun projects for the little ones at the kids’ table!
There are so many ideas of things to do with these little painted canvases! You could also leave chalk at each person’s seat and ask everyone to write down what they are grateful/thankful for this year! It’s a great way to get everyone involved and keep the true meaning of the holidays – family, friends and togetherness.
Challenge everyone at dinner to come up with something different! These will make fun conversation starters! The possibilities are endless!
Do you use place cards for dinner parties? I use them but allow people to move where they sit…LOL It’s more for the aesthetics.
