Chalkboard paint is an easy way to transform any household item. Sine I have a lot left over from painting mason jar lids, I decided to try some more chalkboard crafts. These coasters are fun and functional! Guests can write their name on them, so no more wondering whose drink is whose. They can also be used as a place card at dinner parties. Best of all, they are simple and inexpensive to make. Make a set for yourself or wrap them up as a hostess gift!
You will need:
- 4×4 tiles or wood squares
- chalkboard paint (I used Martha Stewart’s)
- paintbrush (foam or fine-bristled)
All you need to do is paint a few coats on the tile (let dry in between) and you’re done! You could also use colored acrylic paint to create a design on it, such as a border or some polka dots for a permanent design. Then write away! Use a damp cloth to wipe off the coaster before making another creative chalk creation.
