This simple technique will have you painting EVERYTHING with chalkboard paint!

My friend Lova came up with this simple and beautiful prject for me!


You will need:


Tins and boxes (I even used an Easter egg tin for the dragon egg version!)

Chalkboard paint - Krylon makes a great Spraypaint version! But you can use whatever you can find!

Painting materials - newspaper, brush if you are using non-spraypaint

Chalk - I used just white

Great ideas for illustrations - you can search the web for ideas!

  1. Paint all of your tins with chalkboard paint according to package instructions.
  2. Allow to dry completely!
  3. Draw your motifs and designs on your tins and boxes.


This project looks great with spooky motifs, but you can decorate with anything you'd like for year-round use!
