Adding Vinyl to Accent your Chalkboards

I love Chalkboards! I love words and so chalkboards are the perfect solution for me. If I didn’t have them, I would be one of those people who hung words all over the house using construction paper and scotch tape.

Pin It

If you are not sure how to make a chalkboard, I tell you how to do it here. It really is easier than you think.

I wanted my chalkboard to have a little something extra and unique detail. So, I added a little bit of vinyl love. I have done this a couple of times and every time I do it, I love it more and more.

Supplies Needed:
Chalkboard
Vinyl ( I love Vinyl Outlet.net)
Cricut Mini or your shape printed on some paper & scissors
Chalk and wet rag (to use as an eraser)
Directions:
I cut out a simple #1 to fit in the corner of my chalkboard. When you are deciding what vinyl shape to put on your chalkboard, take your chalkboard size into consideration. This chalkboard is not huge, so I made sure my vinyl was cut to size. After you have cut out your vinyl decal, you just need to attach it to your board. I used transfer tape to make the application super simple.
Voila!

Now that you have your chalkboard all decked out and you are not sure what to write on your board-I have a hundreds of quotes on my Chalkboard Quotes Board on Pinterest. 

If you are wanting some simple tips on how to write on your chalkboard-I did a whole post all about this as well. Simple, life changing tips. (Well not really life changing, but you get the idea)

Grateful Chalkboard Vinyl Sign Tutorial

On my Thanksgiving Mantle this year I have this little board that says Grateful

Here it is on my mantle

There is chalkboard vinyl on the board so I can change out whatever we are Grateful for.  right now it is showing that I am Grateful for my family.  My kids have been enjoyed changing out the message with how they are grateful and it has got them thinking about being grateful – which is nice!

This is super simple to make. Here are the supplies you will need:

Orange Vinyl

Chalkboard Vinyl

Wood board

Orange Spray paint

Brown Ribbon and chalk (not pictured)

First spray paint your vinyl, cut out a piece of chalkboard vinyl and lettering in your orange vinyl

Place your Chalkboard vinyl on your wood. Rub over the entire area with a piece of chalk – then wipe it off.  I heard that this preps the area to erase easily in the future (I really don’t know if it is necessary)

Add your orange vinyl word and a brown ribbon bow to the end.

Now have your family take turns writing what they are thankful for.  I hid the piece of chalk behind the board on the mantle so the word can be changed out whenever we want.

What are you Grateful for??

Gooble Til You Wobble

I love to decorate my mantle for the different seasons and one of my favorite ways is with words blocks.  I always have a different word on my mantle for each season.  This year I made up Some “Gobble Til Ya Wobble” words blocks.  I think they are fun and match my other fall items perfectly.

The blocks are made from wood, covered with fall paper and for the lettering I used brown vinyl.  I then embellished with raffia and brown ribbon.

Here is a close up of these cute blocks

How do you decorate for fall?

What’s Cookin? Simple Wall Menu

Hi, it’s Kaysi again from Keeping it Simple.
One of my favorite things to do is get myself organized using chalkboard vinyl.  The stuff is amazing and works really well.  I made this chalkboard menu and put it right on my fridge.  It’s nice to know what I’m cooking that day and it’s always nice to have it on display so everyone else in the family knows what I’m cooking too.
