Summer Food Shaped Chalkboards

Hello! Today, I'm going to show you how to make these food shaped chalkboards. All of these chalkboards are made out of cardboard. I think these chalkboards are great for summer or school!

You will need...

cardboard
paper
chalkboard paint
paintbrush
acrylic paint
pencil
scissors
 x-acto knife

First you need to draw or print out a template of the shape you are going to use for your chalkboard. After you draw or print the template out you can cut the template out with scissors.

Trace the template onto the cardboard.

Now, you can cut out the shape with scissors or an x-acto knife. An x-acto knife is easier to use to cut through the cardboard but the scissors do work.

Draw a border around the shape and around where you don't want the chalkboard paint to be.

Then you can paint the border in with any color of acrylic paint.

When the border is dry, paint in where you want the chalkboard to be with chalkboard paint.

You can hang the chalkboard up with command strips or  you don't have to hang up you can place it on your desk.

I made a ice cream, a pineapple, and strawberry shaped chalkboard. I made all of these chalkboards the same way.
