Joy to the World Chalkboard Art

Yes, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my house.  Last weekend when Dan hung our Christmas lights, he also bought down all of the Christmas bins.   And since we’re not entertaining for Thanksgiving, I decided it was ok to put away all of the fall decor and slowly bring out a few wintery items.

I haven’t put out much.  An evergreen tree here. A red wreath there.  I erased the pumpkins from my table top chalkboard and wanted to write something appropriate for the holidays.  I immediately went to my Pinterest board where I have saved a bunch of chalkboard art.

I came across this:

And I assumed I could tackle that project! So I pulled out my handy dandy chalkboard pen and simple started drawing.  I looked at my computer, then tried to recreate it on my chalkboard.

It didn’t take too much time. And it was really fun to watch the letters come to life!

What do you think? It’s not perfect like the Etsy version. But I love it!

I can’t wait to draw something on another chalkboard!

Have a great weekend!!

  3. Where is it not perfect? Looks great to me.

  4. Um…wow. That looks beautiful! How do you do that, lady?! I am the crafty type, but not the artsy type — I don’t think I could just look at something and bring it to life with a pen. You are very talented! 🙂
