Here is another one of my Chalk Board projects. I love working with this paint. For this particular project; I decided not to use chalk on them, instead I used Slick paint for the lettering. This paint has a great texture and classy look.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
2 Empty Corona bottles
2 Bottle caps
Funnel optional
Black Chalk Paint
White Slick paint
Small shallow container
Paper or plastic to protect painting surface
Damp cloth with mild soap
Chalk if desired

You can use regular bottle caps and drill the holes yourself or order them here with the holes pre-drilled.,-caps,-cap,-salt/Detail

Step 2: Tools

Drill the holes in the bottle caps the size and number you want.
I gave 2 shakes to each shaker and you can see how much came out using the purchased caps.
We thought they worked great!

Step 6: Paint 2ND Coat

Gently wash with a damp cloth with mild soap.
Let dry.
Paint the S and P using the slick paint.
Allow to completely dry.
Carefully remove the tape.
