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??
