Need a last minute gift idea?

Get some chalkboard spray paint (at Michael's for $7.99 but you could use a 40% off coupon to make it even cheaper!) or a can of chalkboard paint....
Pick up a few silver metal trays from the Dollar Tree and some painter's masking tape. Tape around the edges of the trays and spray away! You need to do two coats to create a chalkboard.

Once they are dry, you have to prime them by rubbing chalk all over them and then wiping off. Then it's ready to write on- and decorate!I made flowers out of book paper punched with a scalloped circle punch. I used this idea from Elizabeth Kartchner, and instead of using fabric, I used paper & a hot glue gun to create the flowers.

Bits and pieces from the November & December kits add in other touches to these chalkboards!
