DIY Chalkboard Frame

by Kristina

I love getting my craft on.  If you have been following this blog, you know that I love to share my various DIY projects including; photo blocks, magnets,  fingerless gloves and even camera bags.

My latest project was making a chalkboard frame.  I have seen chalkboard frames with cute messages in many of my favorite decorating magazines and at some of my favorite stores (retailing for big bucks) and  decided to try making my own.

So I headed over to my nearest Michaels and found this elegant, gilded 16x20 frame for $11.99.  After popping out the matting and glass, I used chalkboard spray paint (Krylon $7.99 and a 40% off coupon brought it down to $5.00) and painted the backboard.  After the backboard dried, I put it back in the frame and voila....super cute addition to this year's Christmas Mantel.

I think it turned out great.  It is festive and fun and something I can use all year long.
