If you’re looking for easy Christmas chalkboard ideas that can be made in under an hour, this Christmas wishlist chalkboard tutorial is just for you! It has the look of chalk but is made to be permanent enough to use year after year!
- Darice Medium MDF Chalkboard Tag or this Darice Wood Chalkboard.
- White Paint Pen.
- Graphite Paper.
- Christmas Wishlist Chalkboard Free Printable.
Step 1. To begin this Christmas chalkboard ideas tutorial you will need to print out and trim the Christmas Wishlist Chalkboard Free Printable to fit the chalkboard tag. Cut a matching piece of graphite paper and lay on the front of the tag. Position the free printable in place over the graphite paper and begin tracing over image with a pencil. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect, you can fix most mistakes with the paint pen.
Step 2. Begin coloring in the outlined words with the white paint pen. Since it’s permanent, I highly suggest you go slowly and take breaks periodically. Also, try to keep the amount of fluid released regular between all the letters. You want to try to recreate the translucent look of chalk while getting full coverage.
Step 3. All that’s left to do is fill in what you’re wishing for this year with standard chalk or a chalk marker, hang your new Christmas Wishlist Chalkboard up with all your other decor, and wait for all your dreams to come true!
Hope you enjoyed this Christmas chalkboard ideas wishlist tutorial. As you can see, it’s super easy to recreate the look of chalk but with the ease and permanence of paint. And it doesn’t have to stop here! Use the basic techniques I showed you above to create other Christmas chalkboard ideas and customized chalkboard art and decor, like this DIY calendar chalkboard. It’s a super easy and foolproof way to enjoy the chalkboard craze!
