Hello everyone! Just finishing up some Halloween crafts I’ve been working on. This one was one of my favorites! I’ve been trying to use my massive amount of chalkboard fabric I bought years ago and this was just one of many things I have done with it!
I started out with some wooden rectangle shapes I got at my local Hobby Lobby Store. There are 4 in the pack so it worked out perfect! I covered each one individually using Fabscraps Classic Black Papers (except the clock paper on the right- that’s Graphic 45 Midnight Paper) and my Zig Glue Pen.
TIP: Cut the paper slightly larger that the piece, glue it on and then using an Xacto knife, trim the edges with the paper side down)
I then simply cut out 4 lopsided rectangle shapes with rounded corners from my chalkboard fabric and hot glued them on. After the glue is dry, I then glued the pieces together in a creepy crooked way!
I like having things “off” just a bit in life. It reminds me that nothing and nobody is perfect and flaws give things their personality!
Next I glued on a simple May Arts cream colored cord ribbon which matched the paper colors great. Last I added a bit of faux spider web and glitter spider.. I cut this spider by hand using American Crafts Glitter Paper.
Once it’s finished you can use chalk and write whatever you’d like! I used white chalk and chose “EEEK!” You could also do the word BOO!
TIP: You could use orange chalk for a pop of color!
Here is the finished sign. It turned out great! I chose to hang mine but the nice thing about this project is you can alter it how you’d like. Instead of adding a string to hang it, you could lean it on a shelf or hang it like a picture frame! You can choose different paper and colors to create so many different fun chalkboard signs for Halloween, Christmas or ANY time!
Hope you like it!
