Happy Monday-of-a-short-week to you all (the best kind of Monday that exists)! I’ve got some really great posts lined up for this week, but right now, I’m coming an you with this short little Thanksgiving Chalk-Art project.
I’m linking up with the Dare To DIY party at Primitive & Proper (one of my favorite blogs!). A group of my favorite bloggers is hosting this series, and you should definitely join in.
If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you know that I am NOT a holiday decorator, outside of putting up a Christmas tree and stockings. I have a really hard time spending money on seasonal crafts and such. I don’t like storing them all year long. It just feels cluttered to me.
The great thing about painting a chalkboard on my back door is that I can make holiday art all year long, and not spend money or have to deal with storage issues.
I found this free printable from A Night Owl Blog, and used it as a basic template for my door. I changed a few fonts, for easy-sake. I’m still trying to work on my typography skills.
The goal is to fill the door with hearts and write all the things we’re thankful for. I hope that we have hearts squishing everywhere by Thanksgiving. On the top, on the sides, between banners… we have SO much to be grateful for.
I may have gotten carried away with drawing empty hearts to fill in, but it made me excited for our gratitude-project this week.
See you tomorrow with a BACK SPLASH! Laterz.
