Soooo, are you in Easter mode yet? I totally am. The days are getting longer, the trees at my house are almost ready to pop and the stores are full of pastel, baby animal goodness! And as usual, the Target Dollar Spot reared it’s beautiful, ugly head while I was there again the other day and I came home with a haul, including this little $3.00 chalkboard, which I decided to use for a Simple Easter Chalkboard for the kitchen shelf.
This is one of those projects that’s so simple, it probably doesn’t even need explanation, but I thought I’d give you a few pictures just to guide you along
1. Find a picture of a bunny (or animal of your choice), I found mine here, and print it off. Or, if you’re like me and your printer is out of ink, trace it from the computer screen
2. Rub down the BACK of the picture with chalk.
3. Turn the picture over, place it where you want it on the chalkboard, and trace the outline with a pencil.
4. When you lift the paper off, you’ll have an outline of your shape.
5. Trace around that with the chalk, and color it in if you want.
And because pom poms make everything better, I made a little yarn pom pom to give the bunny a fluffy little tail (tutorial here) and just taped it on with a piece of scotch tape. That’s it!
