Here is a super cute, inexpensive, easy and fun craft :)
Here's what you need:
Little Wood Shapes (Square, Rectangle, Heart, Circle, etc) from the wood section of your Craft Store
Necklace (Yarn, Hemp, Chain, Ribbon, etc)
Chalkboard Spray Paint
Lay down some newspaper outside and spray your wood pieces. The one I'm using is a rectangle, it's about 2"x1.5". I have also used the hearts, those are adorable.
I spray two coats, it dries pretty quickly.
After the paint is dry, glue on your bail to the back.
I like to use E6000 glue for gluing on bails.
Add your necklace and color on your new Chalkboard Necklace!
I chose to use a St Patrick's Day theme, I don't want to get pinched!
This is so much fun for kids, you can change it up everyday, or for each holiday.
Put your initial on it, a smiley face, your favorite jersey number...the list goes on and on.
The wooden pieces are super cheap, a package is usually under a dollar and you get several pieces in the package depending on what shape you choose.
The brand of Chalkboard Spray Paint I used was:
Rust-Oleum Black Chalkboard Spray Paint
Here are a couple other projects I've posted on my blog in the past using this spray paint:
You could also glue a magnet to the back instead of the bail and make it a refrigerator magnet instead of a necklace!
Have a great day
