Winter Chalkboard Quote

Welcome back to our monthly “10” minute decorating ideas! This month we’re all sharing easy winter decor ideas like this winter chalkboard quote. I don’t have the best hand writing, I cheated a little bit!
10 Minute Winter Decor idea for your chalkboard

This chalkboard was made from a large painting found at Goodwill several years ago. I love the chunky frame. I replaced the picture with thin plywood and painted it with chalkboard paint.

Details:

  • clean your chalkboard
  • attach a command hook to hold your wreath/decor
  • print out your quote
  • trim excess and tape the edges together (mine measured 17″x17″)
  • rub chalk on the back of your quote
  • tape quote to chalkboard
  • trace with the end of a pen/pencil and remove paper
  • wet chalk and fill in the traced areas
  • attach boxwood wreath or decor of your choice

Add a command hook on your chalkboard to hang seasonal decor

Command hooks come in handy for all my redecorating of the chalkboard! I’ve heard some people say that they release and don’t hold. The trick it to follow the directions, don’t hang anything on it until the directed time has passed 😉

Post printing makes it easy when you are creating a large sign or chalkboard. I used Block Posters, it’s free,  for this 17″ x 17″ printable. It printed on 4 sheets of copy paper and I trimmed and taped it together.

Rub chalk on the back of your quote to trace for the chalkboard

How to write on your chalkboard

After you trace your design, don’t forget to wet your chalk before you start writing. The writing will be faint until it starts to dry, it makes such a difference!

Trace your quote and be sure to wet the chalk before writing on a chalkboard

It looks a little messy here, I used a micro dusting cloth to clean it up a little. You can see where I traced the lettering.

Add a wreath to the top of your chalkboard

Add a ribbon to your wreath, both of these are from Christmas, the wreaths were on the front door and I used the burlap ribbon on my gifts.

  1. Hi there. Love the chalkboard quote. One question. You said you used a piece of wood to make the chalkboard, just wondering if it’s lumpy and bumpy or is the piece of wood nice and flat. Is there a tutorial for it actually? LOL. Thank you sooo much. Great spring tour as well!

  2. Cute chalkboard! I’ll have to try your tip about wetting the chalk – haven’t done that one before!

  3. Sounds like an easy way to get a pretty quote! Thanks for the tips! Thanks for linking up at #MerryMonday!

  5. Beautiful and perfect for winter!! xo Heather
