Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. - Hanging Chalkboard Initial

by - Monday, June 10, 2013

Who's ready for a little SPD action today? (Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. for all you newbies out there!) ;)

Today's Pinterest project is brought to you by...the letter H!

You've probably seen these all over everyone and their dog's Pinterest boards. I know what you're thinking...not another moss covered initial...

Have no fear! I figured all that moss would be a disaster both before, during and after so I decided to take my hanging initial to the next level....

According to my assistant, here's what you'll need:
Wooden initial | burlap ribbon | chalkboard paint | paintbrush | chalk

First things first...grab your chalkboard paint and go to town! Fun fact: for best results when using chalkboard paint, paint one coat horizontally, allow to dry for at least and hour, and then paint your second coat vertically.

Easy enough, right?!

I must say I am thoroughly impressed with this chalkboard paint I got from Hob Lob. I've bought some before that doesn't really work all that well but this stuff is awesome, I tell ya! Works SO well and the chalk actually shows up really good!

After your paint is dry, you'll wanna borrow your husband's staple gun and secure the burlap to the back of your wooden letter so you can begin tying your bow. If he questions you with your staple gun one hand and a glass of wine in the other, tell him to mind his own biznass. ;)

Tie all that burlap goodness into a big ol' fancy bow and voila! My mother-in-law has always told me that every kitchen should have a touch of red so our's is hanging from our pantry door and I'm so excited to use this for menus, holidays, love notes, etc!! Oh the possibilities!! 

I know I say this every week but this was seriously the simplest project ever.  EVER! And I think they would make for the cutest gifts...don't you?!
