Holiday Activity Chalkboard

Posted by DecoArt on Dec 17th 2013

One of my favorite Christmas traditions that I have heard about is to do one fun activity each day in the month of December as a way to count down for Christmas. In honor of that, here's a Christmas Fun Countdown that you can make in three very easy steps!

Items Needed:

  • Picture Frame
  • Chalk
  • Paint Brush


Start by taking your frame apart. Paint the frame red and the glass part green. Each color took me about 4 coats to fully cover.

Next, paint a two layers (one vertical and one horizontal) of the clear coat chalkboard paint right on the green glass. Let the coating dry between each coat. (Amazing right?!)

Temper it by rubbing chalk all over it (once it is dry) and with a dry rag, wiping the chalk off:

Now you are ready to write with chalk!

If you want to add lettering to the top like I did you can use vinyl, stencil it with paint or write it with chalk!

Have fun counting down to Christmas!
