Saw It, Pinned It, Did It! Chalkboard Plaque

Today I'm going to show you guys my DIY chalkboard plaque! Seriously the EASIEST craft EVER! Not only is it super easy it's also SUPER cheap! I think this project was less than $10 with my {40% off} Michael's coupon! 

I originally saw this idea on Pinterest and really wanted to try it but I made mine a little different! I decided to add a fun flower to mine to dress it up a little more! 

Here is the final result: 
Here is what you will need:
-Wood plaque 
-Chalkboard spray paint
-Flower {of your choice}
-Elmer's glue
-Chalk
Steps: 
1. Spray paint plaque and let dry
2. Glue or hot glue flower
3. Decorate!

  9. Hi there!
    I have been a follower of yours for quite some time now. Reading your blog has been fun because you always have something sweet and interesting to talk about...
    BUT...
    In my humble opinion, I think you need to be more "real" with your followers. You give off this persona that everything in your life is perfect. Everyone knows that no one is perfect. You constantly post different things you like to brag about, but what about the stuff the other bloggers blog about? Like...actual life? The ups AND the downs? Obviously you only want to show off the positives in your life instead of also sharing the negatives. Which makes you unrelatable to your followers. Bragging is not the way you should want to come off. And hun, that's definitely what it is. Your posts have gotten to be almost "fake". Yes, ok, you have wonderful things happening for you, which is great. But what about the downs? You neglect to share those. So your blog has begun to annoy me with the whole "fakeness". Which is why I'm no longer going to follow you.
    You seem to think you are a celebrity of some kind because you have 700 people follow your blog. When in reality, most of those people who comment you with one sentence responses are most likely very uninterested in your life, and only trying to publicize their blog. Blogging has become only about popularity *oooh, how many new followers do i have today??* *hm how can i get more followers on my blog??* *let me do giveaways so i can attract more followers!*. When blogging should be about life or interests.
    I also just want to *disclaim* No. I am not jealous. I have absolutely nothing to be jealous of. I have a wonderful life with a wonderful fiance who has a wonderful job & spoils me rotten. So, no, no...I am not jealous. Simply annoyed that you try to come off as if you are somehow a celebrity & never talk about the downs of life. No one is perfect. So your blog has become extremely fake to me. Yes, you seem to be a really nice person! I'm sure you are! Just here on your blog...it's fake. Not exactly fake...just not completely honest.
    I hope you can take the advice I have given you and put it to use. I wish you and your blog luck! But I won't be back.

  10. Okay, wow. I was typing a comment but catching glimpses of the comment above. Geez. This is a post about a pinterest project for crying out loud. I was GOING TO SAY...this is super cute and easy. I'm itching to make some type of chalkboard but keep getting all these ideas that are chalkboard-related so...I'll probably have 75 in my house before it's all said and done! ha! :)
