Chalkboard Blocks

I got together last week with Holly from Holly's Stamping Addiction to get a little crafty.  With a few blocks of woods, some chalkboard paint, ribbon, a few buttons, brads, twine and chalk we made these cute chalkboard blocks.

They can sit on a shelf, countertop, etc.  Since they are painted with chalkboard paint, you can write your daily menu on one or even change the message to your liking.  My D-I-L is remodeling her kitchen and has chosen an Americana theme, so I Mod Podged a couple of scrapbook cutouts onto a couple for her.  The other I made for my daughter.  Just a simple message that can be changed with the season, holiday or even just her mood.

Have fun creating your own chalkboard blocks!

This project is being shown off at the Take it on Tuesday linky party.
