DIY | Wedding Countdown Chalkboard Sign
Back in January of this year I had the honor of demonstrating an awesome new product at CHA that Martha Stewart Crafts was releasing later in the year called “Erasable Liquid Chalk”. Well that time has come and I’m excited to tell you it’s now on the shelves! I’ve been dreaming about the wedding related project I would create to showcase this unique erasable chalk paint and so here you have it – the darling “Wedding Countdown Chalkboard Sign”. The boards are painted with brand new colors of MSC chalkboard paint and the lettering is all done with the Erasable Liquid Chalk. Why? So that when your wedding is over, you can erase the lettering and turn it into any countdown chalkboard you’d like, maybe even just a regular chalkboard. We can’t wait to see your renditions of this project so make sure to share pictures on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #SomethingTurquoiseDIY and they will show up on our ‘Get Social‘ page!
Ps. Martha, if you are listening – I’ll take this erasable liquid chalk paint in pen-form asap!
For this pink chalkboard version I did the same steps as below and embellished the board with glitter ribbon. The chalk was hung using a thin gold twine.
As with all our DIY tutorials, if you create one of our projects please send us a picture or a trackback – We Love Seeing Your Creativity! If you use Instagram or Twitter please use the hashtag #SomethingTurquoiseDIY. Happy Crafting!
