There is a good chance you’ve seen this project before
when I shared it with Jamielyn’s fantastic readers at her EXTRAORDINARY blog I Heart Nap Time.
But just in case you missed it here it is ONE MORE TIME!

Just a few weeks ago I found these silver platters at my local Dollar Store…
and my first thought was CHALKBOARDS!
.
.
.
I went home right away and I took out my chalkboard paint…
{THANK YOU SO MUCH TO DECOART FOR PROVIDING THE WONDERFUL PAINT FOR THIS PROJECT}
I was ready to get this party started 😉
.
.
I gave the platters enough coats of paint to cover the entire surface perfectly…
They looked awesome already!
.
.
After they dried I prepared the surface spreading chalk all over and wiped it off with a clean sock…
The sock worked perfectly!
.
.
For the next step I used a drill to make two holes in each platter…
Do this slowly… I don’t want you to get hurt!
.
.
We were ready to decorate the platters with some chalk…
My kids gave me the ideas for the drying…
How cute is their sketch…?
Yes, I am a copy cat!

 .
.First I used white chalk to outline the drying…

.
.
…and after I used some color chalk since my little assistants thought that

it would look better…
You must ALWAYS trust the pros!
.
.
At this point we just had one more step… to connect all three platters.
You can use fabric or ribbon among some other thing for this step!
.
.We love Halloween so much
that we hung it up right away…
.
.Here is how it looks with some color fabrics
for the connections….

.
.
The coolest thing about this project is that you can use it all year long just change the colors of the fabrics according to the seasons.

Now looking at it I think it would look very cute with the words:
TRICK
or
TREAT!
LOVE HALLOWEEN!
