Today I want to share one of the Seasonal projects I have been working on…Christmas AND Thanksgiving Chalkboard reversible placemats! whew! someday I will figure out a shorter name!
These vinyl placemats were .88 at Walmart. The side is very smooth and the opposite is more absorb able and pure red…much better for Christmas!
The Thanksgiving side needed a primer of sorts. That vinyl needs to be sealed so the chalkboard paint can adhere. I chose this black enamel I had from another project. Because it was black it would eliminate how many coats I would need of the chalkboard paint.
Next we grab our trusty chalkboard paint. You won’t need a lot. I used about 1 cup for 4 of them. One side chalkboard paint, one side Christmas fun! ( I used simple paint pens to do the Christmas side…keep it easy!)
Your paint should have been left for about 3 days. Then you should cover the whole thing with chalk. And rub the chalk in.
Wipe it off and you are done!
