Thanksgiving Chalkboard Art

November 19, 2012

One of the fun things we created for our wedding was the chalkboard seating chart. Being pretty active on Pinterest, I knew that I would still get lots of use out of the chalkboard after the wedding. However, I searched and searched, Pinterest and Google, for chalkboard art with a Thanksgiving theme, and I just didn’t see anything I liked. So I decided to create my own! I googled for quotes about thankfulness and found one I loved, created the typography on my computer and reverse-traced it onto the chalkboard. (Rub the back of the printed art with chalk, then trace over the lines you want with something hard—the point of a mechanical pencil with no lead works great—the outlines show up faintly on your board and you then trace over them with chalk for a brighter image.) Then I hand-drew the floral parts in the corners. I think it turned out pretty great! I hope everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving!
