Happy Tuesday to you all! I needed a little extra something as far as Christmas decor is concerned for my dining room... a show stopping attention grabber... and this is what I came up with. I was inspired while watching Castle... yes, Castle. Castle said, "On the shortest, darkest days of the year, people of all faiths celebrate the light." And I realized that really is the reason why Christmas is the best of all holidays... we're celebrating His light.
What you'll need:
Chalkboard paint and chalk
Something to poke holes with (a screwdriver, perhaps?)
A strand of Christmas lights
First: Paint your canvas.. 2 coats should do
Second: Use your chalk and get creative with your fonts!
Third: Poke as many holes as there are lights on your strand (mine had 140). Don't poke the holes too big, though.
Fourth: Push your lights through from the back. You may have to push a little hard to get the canvas to tear a bit to fit the lights. The snugger, the better. It'll hold the lights in place.
Fifth: Plug it in!!!
The best part about this project is you can change the text every year... isn't chalkboard paint just the greatest thing EVER?
Merry Christmas to all!
