I love chalkboard media about as much as I love Fall decor. I grabbed some boards from my garage and sanded them. I then painted the first board in a black chalkboard paint. I let it dry and painted it in the opposite direction. After it was completely dry I conditioned the board by rubbing a piece of chalk over the board then wrote Pumpkin Patch at the top.
I painted two smaller boards in a bright orange paint. I dry brushed a lighter orange over the darker orange. I added clothespin to the top of the orange “pumpkin” boards as my stems. I just rolled some of my Gorilla Glue tape and put it behind the bottom of the pumpkins (to balance the clothespins). I didn’t want to commit to gluing the pumpkins to the board–just in case I change my mind on the design.
I love the way the orange pumpkins POP out against the BLACK chalkboard paint.
So what are you creating for the Fall?
