Chalkboard Necklace


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
Jewelry Bail
Necklace (Yarn, Hemp, Chain, Ribbon, etc)
Chalkboard Spray Paint
Chalk :)


Step one:
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.


Step 2:
After the paint is dry, glue on your bail to the back.  
I like to use E6000 glue for gluing on bails.


Step 3:
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 
and 
Happy Crafting!
