The idea of seasonal blocks isn’t a new one–they’ve been around for a LONG time. But it’s time they got an update–something modern and classic with twist that makes them endlessly useful. I’m talking about chalkboard blocks.
Can you imagine how many uses you can find for these? Use them for every holiday, for back to school, for your kids’ rooms, to teach your kids to read–seriously the list is endless.
And they’re so simple to make you’ll have them done lickety-split.
- Gold spray paint
- Chalkboard vinyl
- Paper cutter
Instructions for Chalkboard Blocks:
- Spray your blocks on all six sides, turning as they dry.
- Cut your chalkboard vinyl into squares using your paper cutter. My blocks are 3″ so I cut my vinyl 2-1/2″ square. Cut six for each block.
- Adhere your vinyl to each side of the blocks.
- Season the vinyl with a piece of chalk.
Ta Da! Now write or draw whatever you want–you have six sides to fill so go crazy!
I hope you enjoy this idea and how useful it can be. And if you like this, I hope you’ll join me at Mabey She Made It for more ideas like these:
Hi! I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIY, craft, and sewing blog. You’ll find me mostly making things for my kids, myself, and my home. I believe that anyone can create, and I my goal is to make even the most intimidating projects easy to understand and fun to make. I’m a self-taught seamstress who didn’t know how to run a sewing machine until about 4 years ago and now I’m totally hooked.
I’m a mom to three adorable girls (4, 2, and newborn), all of whom you’ll see on my blog often—usually in something I’ve made them. You’ll also see a lot of Mabey Manor—our Victorian home built in 1910 but in need of a LOT of love. We’re slowly working our way through the house to make it our own.
