Give A Girl Some Chalkboard Paint...
And she'll paint the town black making fun and simple Halloween decorations!
I had a stack of purple chargers from a Christmas tea party Madi and I hosted back in 2009 for some of the teenage girls she loves and looks up to. These plates were sitting in a cabinet out of sight, out of mind.
Since purple has become a staple Halloween color, I remembered those chargers and pulled two of them out. I painted the centers with chalkboard paint...
Then added some ribbon, jeweled stickers, and chalk ink messages with whimsical Halloween flair! I put one in Madi's room.
And made this cute little one as well. I might have to pull out the rest of those chargers, this is fun!
I also came across an old metal sign that used to hang in my laundry room when we first got married.
With chalkboard paint, chalk ink, and more of that same ribbon, the sign got a fun fall makeover and is now hanging in my entryway with photos of Trick or Treats past!
I wonder what I'll turn into a chalkboard next?!
Enjoy the season! Have a treat, or make yourself one!
