DIY Painted Chalkboard Sign


  • White Marker

  • Black Marker

  • Black Poster Board

  • Sign Template

  • White paint

  • Projector

Place the printed template under the projector and trace the outline of the words in white marker (don't worry if it's not perfect - we'll show you how to clean it up later).

Once you've traced the words in white marker, fill in the traced letters with white paint. Once you've filled in the letters, clean up any mistakes with the black marker!

Voila! You've not made your very own DIY faux chalkboard sign. Pretty nifty, eh?
