Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

cut your wood to the size you want your sign to be.  home depot and lowes will cut wood for you if you don’t have your own saw.

Step 2:

tape the edges using painters tape. paint inside the tape with 2 or 3 coats of chalkboard paint. sand lightly between coats with fine sandpaper.

Step 3:

remove the tape and paint the border with any colour and or pattern you like. I used deco art americana paint.

Step 4:

I used word art on my computer for the letters and transferred them onto the wood using graphite paper available here and at most craft stores.

Step 5:

paint the letters and use the same method as step 4 to add any pictures you want on your sign.

Step 6:

you can either use eyelet screws or drill holes through the wood to add wire, rope, chain or ribbon to hang the sign.  I drilled holes and used wire for this sign and added beads to the wire.  I also painted and glued on a little piece of wood trim to hold the chalk.   I used PL premium glue.  It’s tough stuff.
