DIY chalkboard Christmas list

You know how you sometimes stumble upon an idea and you’re so inspired you want to send it to someone? Well when I saw this project from Tried & True that is exactly how I felt. I started to e-mail it to my mom… but then I thought I’d share it with all of you!

Vanessa’s project is a DIY permanent chalkboard Christmas wish list clipboard. Isn’t it adorable?! I’m going to have to make this in the next two weeks. My boys will just love it. I’m also thinking about a lovely little chore chart… it seems my boys sometimes need reminders. Imagine! {wink}

Hop over and visit Vanessa on Tried and True for a free printable download of the “All I Want For Christmas Is” template plus a step-by-step tutorial (with pictures) of how to make your own permanent chalkboard Christmas wish list clipboard. 

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

    Great idea! The ‘permanent’ part can actually be anything that you may want posted any time of year (your children’s ‘chores list,’ for example — or a “Thought for the Day”). Thanks for sharing this. :-)
