MOPS Craft: Chalkboard Platter

This was actually our MOPS craft for September, but I never blogged about it. I wrote “MERRY” on it, and added it to our ‘festive’ Dollar Tree Christmas decor. =p

Materials

  • Silver platter (from Dollar Tree)
  • Con-Tact Chalkboard Paper (from discountschoolsupply.com $6.49 for 18”x6’)
  • Credit Card
  • Chalk

Directions

  1. Using Chalkboard Contact paper, cut a piece of chalkboard to fit the middle portion of the platter.
  2. Remove the paper backing off of the Contact paper and adhere to the platter.
  3. Use a credit card to remove the bubbles.
  4. If desired, add a ribbon by drilling holes in the platter and then loop a ribbon through the holes.
  5. To get your chalkboard ready to use, you need to use the side of a piece of chalk and rub it all over the chalkboard to make it a cloudy white.
  6. Use a dry cloth to wipe it off.
  7. Now your chalkboard is ready to write on! Place by your front door and write “Welcome!” or use to write a favorite verse or poem. Get creative!
