Easy & Fun Chalkboard Projects for Parties

One of my favorites trends right now is using chalkboard for favors and decorations.  I’m not sure why I like it so much, or why it’s so popular, but I’m guessing nostalgia.  We have electronics and gadgets and white boards in school… and we miss the feel (and smell?) of chalkboards of our youth.  Ok, maybe that’s over-reaching, but I bet it has something to do with it!

Regardless, I have some great chalkboard projects and ideas to share today!

From Emmaline Bride, DIY Chalkboard Flower Pots – such a great idea for spring showers and birthday parties whether as table numbers, centerpieces or favors!

From With a Dash of Color – wooden DIY chalkboard tags!  These could be used as favors, place settings, candy buffet signs… and oh, so much more!

How about a DIY tutorial for Chalkboard wrapping paper?  I love the idea of being able to personalize a gift this way.  From Make the Best of Everything, a quick and easy tutorial:

From bell’alimento, a DIY tutorial on making Chalkboard Painted Wine Bottles – perfect for decor and table numbers!

And finally, from Cottage in the Oaks, a unique idea… chalkboard chargers.  Another great way to personalize each place setting, or a fun way to give your guests a doodle pad?
