With the help of my dear hubby, an old 4x4 was transformed into a mantle decoration. He sawed the 4x4 into 4" wood blocks, which I primed and painted white. Then I taped off the front and made a chalkboard square with a couple coats of chalkboard paint. Red and white bistro chalk markers were used to write the message.
After Christmas, I'm going to shabby them up a bit more by sanding and painting the edges, and then I'll use them for other decorations. I've thought of messages like:
- give thanks
- let it snow
- look who's 3
