Wanted to share this quick idea with you. I came up with it while trying to think of a frugal way to decorate for a church event this weekend.
Behold, the foamboard “chalkboard.”
My Walmart sells black foam board near the poster board. It was less than $3.
I brought it home, rubbed it over with chalk, then wiped it with a tissue. That gave it a chalkboard look, instead of it being solid black. I sketched words and the nativity (I used a clip art image as a guide) then, when I was happy with my design, I traced it with white chalk marker, also available at Walmart.
What do you think? Pretty convincing for a fake, huh? I don’t think it will hold up to erasing the chalk pen, but I will let you know if it does.
