Art-Full Horizons Jolly Jumpstart Blog Hop!!

The Hop runs from Nov 1 – 7!

Check it all out on the Art-Full Horizons blog to get started on the Hop!!

And just for fun, here's a little project I made that would be a great Christmas gift!

Word Bubble – Say It With Letters
Chalkboard Paint – Valspar ($15 at Lowe's)
Magnets – Unknown ($3 at Lowe's)
Vinyl, Diecutting Machine – Silhouette
Hot Glue Gun – Unknown
Font- Honey Script

  1. Paint the entire front of the wood shape with chalkboard paint and allow to dry. Apply 3 coats of paint.

Cut a vinyl saying on the Silhouette or other diecutting machine. Remove the excess vinyl from the diecut and apply a transfer sheet to the front of the vinyl. Carefully peel the vinyl saying from the backing sheet.

Apply the vinyl saying to the wood shape.

Hot glue magnets to the back of the wood shape. Place them in each corner so that the shape will not rock when someone is writing on it.

Apply to the nearest metal surface or refrigerator.

Happy Gift-Making!
