DIY Wedding Chalkboards

I love all of the fun wedding decorations that you can create on your own, and today I have another one for you. Mini chalkboard signs! I adore the fun little chalkboard signs that you can use for table numbers, directions and more, but the cost can really add up when buying them pre-made, so today I'm going to share how you can make a LOT of them for less.

Here's what you need:

Here's what you do:
Take your wooden plaques and paint them with your chalkboard paint. Add a second coat if necessary and let dry for the allotted time on the paint instructions. (Most of these will dry to the touch rather quickly, but you have to wait several hours before you are supposed to write on them.)

Use your vinyl cutting machine to cut out some decorative vinyl to add some flair to your chalkboards. When they are dry, place your vinyl on the chalkboards. I love this extra artistic touch.  IMG_4487

Place a marble in a clothespin and use your Advanced Strength Dots to keep it in place.

Using the Advance Strength Dots, adhere the clothespin to the back of the plaques, creating an easel backing that will make the plaques stand up. IMG_4486

Write your messages on the chalkboards with chalk and they are ready to go!
