Step 2: Prep Frame
To start, take apart the picture frame and paint the glass with chalkboard paint. While you set that out to dry, grab the frame and paint that too! You can choose to use spray paint as well if that sounds easier to you.
Step 3: Add Wooden Shapes
Add some wooden shapes to your frame with a bit of hot glue or E6000 glue and let dry, before reassembling your frame.
Step 4: Add Magnets
Now, attach your small magnets to the back so you can hang it in your locker or on your fridge!
Step 5: Done!
Now, you can write on the chalkboard! This is perfect to use for home on your fridge to write down reminders and notes, and for school to place inside your locker!
