Got something to say? With this chic ‘n’ easy craft, you can
transform any frame, old or new, into a sketchpad, a notebook, a to-do list or
a work of art.
What you’ll need:
1 mat cut to fit inside the frame of your choice
1 small can of chalkboard paint
What you’ll do:
First, you need to pick out your frame. Grab an old one off
of your dresser or head to a craft or thrift store and pick one up. Now you’ll
need to buy a mat that fits inside of it. If you’ve got an oddly-sized frame or
a frame with an unusual shape, you can use scissors or an exact-o knife to cute
Painting time! Spread newspaper over your work surface,
place the mat on the paper and get to work. Paint two coats of chalkboard paint
on one side of the mat. When it’s completely dry, pop it into your frame.
What comes next is up to you. You can sketch your dog, write
a note to your mom, scribble down your weekly chores—whatever you want! The
best part is that all ya have to do to start over is erase. Easy peasy, right?
