Back in July I was contacted by a company, Chalk This Way, that sells chalk markers on Amazon. They wanted to send me a set and you know me and my love of chalkboards so of course I said "yes!".
I picked their fall set knowing those fall shades would come in handy for the upcoming October 4th wedding.
As well as some fun fall chalk images for fall around the house.
One thing I really like to use chalk markers on is glass... take an old frame, line the back with either black paper or paint the back/reverse of the glass and you have a fun and easy to reuse "chalkboard".
And all those markers came in handy for the wedding that was a couple of weeks ago... October 4th to be exact. I think chalk markers are so much easier to use than real chalk which can smudge pretty quickly, especially on a board like this that was used instead of individual wedding programs.
Here I used some picture frames, black paper and made four of these to place around the wedding to remind folks to share their photos of the happy day, happy couple. Each one used a different color like yellow, brick red, sage green along with the traditional white...
A thrift store frame painted with chalkboard paint (it's actually a mirror) and the newlyweds have a keepsake for their new home. Chalk markers aren't really recommended for using on DIY chalk boards but if you want a permanent piece of chalk art OR if you're like me and don't mind painting over the previous image then go ahead and use it on a board like this.... I have a few boards I've painted over multiple times with no problem covering old messages at all.
And for the menu...
A scrap piece of masonite and a couple of 3M velcro hangers let everyone know that the hot chocolate bar was ready to enjoy.
Complete with another chalk board listing all the options for your hot chocolate on a galvanized/tin chalkboard.
Miss Bee was my assistant on the Friday before the wedding and as always, was such a big help!
