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?


Thinking Ahead to Thanksgiving

We plan to have a few Thanksgiving posts over the next couple of weeks… today is the first, with some fun ideas for decor, Thanksgiving table decorations, and overall thanksgiving thankfulness!

First up, from Jeanne Winters, a lovely post about creating gratitude… with a very simple, but elegant place-setting idea – writing names on leaves!  These free, homemade Thanksgiving place cards will definitely grace our table this year.

And here’s a terrific and easy Thanksgiving decoration crafts;  bottle “word art” tutorial from Choose To Thrive.  This can be done so many ways, and with various words – Fall, Thanks, your family name…Here they use a Silhouette machine (we just gave one a way a few weeks back!) to cut out vinyl letters but you could easily paint them on, or buy letters in various materials (felt, wood, etc.) from craft stores.

Here’s another great Thanksgiving craft for adults or children!  Click on over to Nest of Posies for a great DIY tutorial on using an old tin and chalkboard paint to make a fab menu board!


For a super simple, inexpensive, but totally unique decoration, why not try making a cornhusk pom!  Centsational Girl has a great post with three easy crafts for fall, including this pom.  And wait until you see her elegant clothespin place card holders!

And finally, from A Diamond in the Stuff, a Give Thanks Mantel, to inspire (or copy) If you like decorating with pumpkins like I do, this could become a new seasonal favorite!
