Lets make something!

 

Have you seen these....

plaque

I got them at the Dollar Store after seeing a post on them at Joys of Home.  Then Amanda at Imperfectly Beautiful made something with them.  If you live near her you better hope you can find any of these, cause she is buying them up!

So I thought I would do a chalkboard out of them.

So I got my trusty chalkboard paint out and went to town.  Then I let it dry.

Then I took the green paint and put polka dots all around the edge.   It was a bit neon looking so I toned it down by off seating the teal on top of the green after the green had dried.

Next I just added a cute little ribbon and Whalah!!!

Easy Peasy!!!

I bought these when I saw them on the other site and I forgot about them! I wonder where they are. I must have stuffed them in my entertainment center or closet somewhere.

Those are so cute! I haven't seen them. I like the chalkboard idea. I didn't turn the sign thingy into a chalkboard because it was uneven. I am posting pics soon! It turned out pretty cute.

Have a great weekend Valarie!

I have definitely gotta go to the Dollar Store and look for these! I have been wanting something like this to put outside my office door at the school I work at. Several people have some that they have paid someone to do for them professionally. I think I can do this and save a lot of money! Thanks!
