Hello again, 36th Avenue readers! It’s Jill from Create.Craft.Love! I hope everyone is ready for Halloween. Can you believe the holidays are already here? It seems like only yesterday, we were preparing for Easter! When I think of the holidays, I think of the huge meal gatherings with family and friends. Accessorize your holiday table with these Easy Chalkboard Place Cards!

Wanna make your own Chalkboard Place Cards?

Here’s what you need:

Chalkboard acrylic craft paint

Paint brush

Mini canvases

Mini easels

When I saw these cute little mini easels at Michael’s, I knew I had to have them!

I won’t even insult your intelligence with a step by step tutorial. Simply paint the little square canvases with the chalkboard paint. I recommend 2 coats for best coverage and results. Follow the directions on the label for drying times.

These little canvases will make great place cards at the grown up table or fun projects the littles at the kids’ table!

You could also leave chalk at each person’s seat and ask everyone to write down what they are grateful/thankful for this year! It’s a great way to get everyone involved and keep the true meaning of the holidays – family, friends and togetherness.

Challenge everyone to come up with something different! Fun conversation starters!
