Decorated Chalkboard

Chalkboards are all the rage at the moment, so why not rummage through your craft  stash and decorate a small board for your craft room, kitchen or child’s bedroom? The edges of our board are covered in washi tape, and we found stamped images, paper and lace flowers, hessian, recipes cut from a sheet of scrapbooking paper, paper doilies and tiny gems to creat this design.  

These large clothes-pegs are ideal for keeping paper work together, displaying photos or recipes.  They can stand up, lay flat or be turned on their side, depending on your mood at the time.  Our holder was covered in scrapbooking paper, given a coating of Mod Podge and when dry decorated with flowers, lace, stamped images and tied with brown, turquoise and beige twine.  On the reverse side is the word ‘Peace’.
