Yes - it's true. I got my hands on some chalkboard markers and fun has ensued. I first learned of these from Jen at Rambling Renovators and I couldn't resist trying this myself.
The large chalkboard in our kitchen made a great canvas for trying this out. Here is what I came up with:
Unfortunately, due to the texture on our wall surface, the board is coated in chalk dust. I need to repaint the whole board.
In terms of the design, the hardest part was finding something to help draw the circle for the wreath. I finally used my big wall clock as a template. What I really wanted was one of those large protractors that teachers used to use for geometry on the chalkboard. Remember those? But really anything circular does the trick. Then I softly traced out lines and placement for the letters and went to work filling them in.
I am dying to find other places to use these markers. Watch out windows!
I leave you today with this amusing item:
