Spring art on a chalkboard

Hi there everyone.

This week we are gearing up for our It’s  a Spring thing linky party and mega giveaway. You can come back Friday and join us for the fun.

Last years Spring thing party had over 700 links of Spring inspiration.

This is where you can link up or simply browse all the Spring inspiration brought to you, and of course get in on the giveaway.

This years party not only will be packed with Spring inspiration, but we also have some mega giveaways we are privileged to share with you.

We have some great sponsors and wish you luck!


This  little here project is so easy, so little time, and so inexpensive!

Today, I am sharing Spring art on a chalkboard.

 how you all doing?

We are chugging along here. Lots going on this Spring and before you know it, the boys will be out of school soon.

My oldest is getting ready to go to Indianapolis this week with band.

 That boy gets to go to so many nice places and the experiences he is having with band are really life long!

So now onto my Spring art on a chalkboard.

Spring art on a foam chalk board

A foam chalkboard none the less made by Elmer’s.

Isn’t my new Orchid so pretty.  I never had one before, but I could not resist.

 Even came in the pretty little blue ceramic pot

at Lowe’s hardware for only $16.99.  I thought that was a good price.

So these are the little chalk foam boards I am speaking of.

Sorry for the darker picture. I was crafting at night.  Seems my creativity likes to spark then, don’t ask me why, when I have all day.

These foam chalkboards come in a 3 pack in the school supply section at Walmart for a few bucks.  

I had the foam chic

from last year’s Spring art, as I just shared 

my Butterfly dollar tree vase, you can see all the fun things to do with these little foam cut outs from the dollar tree.

The stencils I bought made by Plaid at Walmart. They are peel and stick.

All I did for the chickie was trace it with a chalk pen.  

I bought that at Walmart near the crayon section, they come in a two pack and a variety of color choices.

Prettier shot of my new orchid!

(the little blue mason jar also came from Walmart)

 My new Spring art on chalkboard fit this 8 X 11 frame.

I did take regular chalk and season it, just chalked it up with the side of chalk and wiped it off.

 Wanted the real chalkboard effect.

You have seen me frame other diy art work in, I believe my last one 

was my stenciled rooster and coffee bean art.

That’s it, does not get any easier than this!

    I love your chalkboard and making it with foam board is a great idea! I have a ‘chalkboard’ I made over a year ago using an old picture. I put a ‘for god so loved the world’ artwork on it before Christmas in 2012 and it’s still there. I’ve been thinking it’s time to erase it and put up something spring-y!

    Thanks for letting us know about the foam chalkboards….what a great way to decorate for ANY season! Just wipe it off and write a new saying for a new season or holiday!!! Really cute!
