3 Easy DIY Chalk Marker Projects
It’s the time of year when I’m itching to make some home decor changes, but I don’t have extra money in the budget. I created three simple chalk marker projects to brighten up my home so I thought I’d share them today to spark some ideas for your home.
Clipboard Display & Quote
Clipboard displays are all the rage now, but instead of paying extra for a ready made version, make your own with chalk markers.
Simply paint an old clipboard with a base color of acrylic paint, then once the base coat is dry, use a stencil to create a pattern with a chalk marker. I created the quote by painting a swatch of acrylic color then hand lettering the quote using a silver chalk marker.
Another super simple chalk marker project is a framed quote for your wall. I took an old frame and painted the cardboard backing with black paint, then used a gold chalk marker to hand letter the word “hello”. You could write out a short quote as well.
Personalized Welcome Sign
It’s always nice to make guests feel welcome in your home and an easy way to do this is to create a custom Welcome sign with their name.
I found an old painting at the thrift store and painted over it with chalkboard paint. Whenever a guest comes over, I use chalk markers to write a unique message just for them.
For each of these chalk marker projects I used Chalkola Chalk Markers. They come in a variety of styles and colors, and are simple to use.
I particularly love the metallic pens, as you could probably tell.
The only issues I had were trying to wash the chalk paint off a chalkboard that was very porous, and trying to remove the “washable” paint from a t-shirt. So just make sure to use the markers on a non-porous surface if you plan to wash it off, and wear old clothing while completing your project.
