How to make Chalkboard labels

Chalk Labels tutorial header Follow Me on Pinterest These labels are a great way of keeping things labeled without having to commit to a permanent label.  They are easy to erase and switch out as needed.  I like to keep them on my “current” project boxes so I know where everything is that I am currently working on.

For this project you will need:

Wood plaques of different sizes ( available in the wood aisle of craft stores)

Chalkboard pain

paint brush or craft brush

White paint pen/ marker (optional)

Chalk

Velcro

Glue Gun and Glue

Step 1 – Sand and Paint

Step 3 – Attach to boxes
