DIY Christmas Art

Today I’m sharing DIY Christmas Art.  This is chalkboard art that would look great hanging on a wall or over a mantel.

Recently I shared my fireplace Christmas makeover.  I usually have a large mirror hanging over my fireplace, but I really wanted something to replace it that was solely Christmas.

Cork Board art work

I used a large cork board from Hobby Lobby for this project.  Use your 40% off coupon, and these will be SO cheap! (To see more DIY projects with these cork boards, click HERE and HERE.) DIY Christmas Artwork

I began by staining the frame.

Next, I added chalkboard paint to the corkboard.

Kids Helping

The painting was a slow process because my daughter wanted to “help.”  It eventually got done! I found the (free!) artwork for my piece at The Graphics Fairy.

I used an old-school projector to get my image on the corkboard.  However, I realize most people don’t have old projectors lying around!  You can print out something (you may need to send it to an office store for this scale) and use my perfect lettering technique.
