DIY Chalkboard Picture Frame

Looking for a unique and homemade Valentine's Day gift?
How about a chalkboard picture frame? Now you can leave love notes for your sweetie all year long!

First you'll need a cute assistant and a wooden picture frame. We picked this one up at Michael's for just $1. I like that it has a large area to write your message!

You'll also need a can of chalkboard spray paint (available at Michael's)

Now get spraying! I applied three coats (allow for drying in between coats)

A few rhinestone added for a sparkling finish touch and that's it!
Quick, easy & your Valentine is sure to love it!

These would also make amazing wedding favors. Attach a piece of chalk with coordinating ribbon and you've got a one-a-kind favor for your guests.

  3. I read the line about finding the frame as you picked up a cute assistant for $1-- HA!

    That's a very neat idea for the frame; chalkboard paint is everywhere, but I hadn't seen it on a frame yet.

  4. LOVE chalkboard paint ... what a terrific way to use it! Great idea!! Your frame turned out adorable!!
