Fall Chalk Pen Fun

It seems any more I only post when I have time to actually be creative! As is has been some time, that is a huge indication of how busy our life has been!

I have managed to carve some time this fall to do some projects and rather than do a post for each one I thought I'd include them all together.



I've been loving those chalk pens and have managed to create a number of signs and holiday themed items. The great thing about them is they wash off with water. So if you make a mistake {who makes those?} its easy to fix and move on. If you love what you did get a matte sealer and spray it when your done to keep your design.

Pinterest is a great inspiration for different fonts and designs. I have to admit that most of these design ideas came from there.

First off, I got some old doors from my dad. I used one to make a sign for every day and the other is for Christmas.




 I tried it in a few homes before it came to rest in the kitchen. 







 I haven't decided where this one will go yet.



You can also see the other little one I did below the cabinet. This one along with the following others were from thrift stores as either mirrors or ugly duckling pictures. My criteria for used frames is that they be wooden {which are easier to paint or restain} and that the glass is in good shape. If the back can't be removed just tape off the frame and you can spray paint the glass with chalkboard paint.


For thanksgiving I thought I'd stick with the current trend and try a turkey. 

Here's his before:


Once again, chalkpaint to the rescue. I didn't even prime this guy. Once the paint dried I got out my trusty chalk pen.




Here's another Goodwill picture that got a face lift for a Christmas gift.

First I distressed the wooden frame, then taped it off and added the chalk.






For Christmas I decided to try glass ornaments. Again, these were from a thrift store. No priming needed. To make it a bit easier I used push pins to help them stand {after removing their silver topper thing} on a piece of cardboard.



And yes, I did leave a nice chalkpaint outline on the garage floor. Oops! These took a few coats and at the end I had to flip them over and group them together to do the tops of them. 



I'm anxious to add these to the tree which may happen tomorrow! My hubby is going hunting and hates the decorating job so the kids and I might surprise him!


Thanks for stopping by! Don't be afraid to try chalk paint. It really is easy!
