Clipboard/Chalkboard Picture Frame



Clipboard/Chalkboard Picture Frame

I saw a little clipboard used as frame on it the other day while roaming in the twilight zone of information on the computer the other day.  These were so cute!  I wanted to make them.  While I was at Walmart I looked around the office supplies and found little ones for $1.27 each.  Hmm, I  wondered how I would use them.  Since it is Teacher's Appreciation Week and Mother's Day, I thought the chalkboard paint I have at home would work great.  So, I bought them!

What you need:


Clipboard
Chalkboard paint
mod podge or other glue
sealant spray
jute twine or wire, for hanger

Directions

I painted them with chalkboard paint, added their pictures with mod podge (made a collage for my oldest son's sub teacher of the children), had the twins write their name and I added the year, sprayed with protectant sealant (Krylon Gloss Indoor/Outdoor),  and tied jute twine on them for hanging.  Done!  Easy gift and it only took a few hours, probably not that long but I was busy..you know how that goes.  There are so many different ways to use these and I have spare ones for me!  Off to finish more crafts!  <3 and hugs!
