I found this pretty charger plate at the Dollar Tree and wanted to make something with it. Lately I've been using chalkboard paint more and more, so I decided to make a chalkboard.
I used blue painters tape to tape the edges of the charger. I cute the tape to curve the edges so it could make a circle shape. This took a little while.
I then spray painted the plate with chalkboard paint.
Once dry, I removed the tape. There were a few smudges where the paint got under the tape but nothing too noticeable. I drilled a small hole in the top of the charger. I made a pretty bow that I fastened with floral wire. I looped the wire through the hole and duck taped it too the back. Sssshhhh! Don't tell anyone! Not a pretty sight, but no one will ever see the back (except you guys!).
I took a white paint marker and wrote "days before Christmas." That way, I can use chalk to write in the number of days.
I think it turned out pretty swell for something I got at the dollar store. A little chalkboard paint, ribbon, and painters tape, all of it I already had handy, fixed it up nicely!
