Chalkboard Crosses

Chalkboard Crosses

It’s Spring Hop week and the spring ideas will be flowing!  All week long the other hostesses will be sharing ideas and then on Friday I hope you’ll comeback and link your spring posts.  AND definitely come back and check out the great ideas!

I didn’t have time to do a long, complicated project, but I was in the mood for something new.  I especially wanted to add something Christ honoring.  When I saw little wooden crosses at the craft store I knew what I could do.

I got out my chalkboard paint and painted them….couldn’t be easier.

When you make your own chalkboards, be sure to “season” them before you write on them.  Take a piece of chalk and rub the cross all over with the side of the chalk.  Then erase it and your cross is ready to be written on.

After Easter I will erase the words and write something else on them.  I can think of lots of ways to use these!

I think they’d be pretty hanging with a collection of different crosses, or for a wedding, Christmas….so many uses!

Come back on Friday and join the party!
