Mini-Chalkboard Art

I love chalkboard art.  I love that it can be changed really easily, just erase it and write something new.

 

The problem I have….

 

I have horrible handwriting and I can’t draw a stick figure.

Ok, seriously, look at the one on the left, would you want that on your dresser if you were a kid?  Can you say SCAR-RY.  Nothing about it says ‘I love you.’

But I found these super cute little chalkboards at the craft store and a chalk marker and wanted to make something for my son.  So I thought I would turn to my Silhouette Cameo and some vinyl to make a stencil.

I just colored in the lines of the stencil using the chalk marker.  Much cuter, and way easier than writing.

I made two stencils because I have two chalkboards.  There is no way I would have been able to draw this moon by hand.

The marker says it will come off with water, but as you can see with the moon one, it doesn’t really come all the way off if you leave it on for a while.

Ian really likes his little signs, even if he can’t read them yet.  They are super easy to make, and super easy to change the sentiment.
