Chalkboard paint has put its stamp on just about everything from refrigerators to dining tables to terra-cotta pots, and we love chalkboards in just about every scenario. So naturally, we couldn’t miss yet another opportunity to have some fun with Rust-Oleum’s Chalkboard paint.
You’ll need the following materials for this DIY chalkboard wreath:
- Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint, tinted to moonstone
- 16 inch beaded ceiling medallion
- ribbon of your choice
- foam brushes
- Floetrol (optional)
Begin by painting the inside of your ceiling medallion with chalkboard paint. I left the outside moulding of the medallion white because I liked the way it framed the chalkboard area, but you can paint the entire medallion if you want! Use a foam brush to get an even paint job. We also added a little bit of Floetrol to our chalkboard paint. Floetrol is a paint conditioner that slows down the drying time. By doing this, brush strokes and brush drag even out before the paint dries.
Once your paint dries, you are ready to add your ribbon and hang!
Write a cute message on your wreath, and you’re done!
