chalkboard banner

Just like the next blogger, I have a thing for chalkboard paint. I mean, what's not to love about being able to customize your wall and/or decor to each holiday or celebration? Nothing! When I saw this bunting on Pinterest via Etsy, I knew I wanted to recreate something similar for a fraction of the $18 price tag.
On my {weekly} trip to Hobby Lobby I found the perfect thing to make this little craft EASY peasy: a pre-made bunting made of chipboard. I couldn't find it on their website, but it was in the party section, and there were several shapes to choose from for about $3 for a 9-piece package.
I had plenty of chalkboard paint at home, so I painted a couple layers on both sides, then strung some thing Valentine ribbon through the pre-punched holes when it was dry.
I am so happy with the way this turned out, and I'm excited to be able to customize it for whatever holiday or birthday we're celebrating any given month!
I'm linking up with AP for Hey, that's Pin-tastic! Go check out all the great projects!
