DIY Fall Wood Slice Magnetic Chalkboard ๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

I’ve been wantingย to make one of theseย for a looong time. Honestly, I didn’t think it was going to be so easy. Now I have so many more ideas of chalk paint DIYs, especially for Christmas ๐Ÿ˜ But for now let’s check this one out!

What you need for this DIY:

dsc_0822-2

  • wood slice
  • masking tape
  • chalk spray paint (I found this one yesterday and it is amazing. Not only it’s a chalk spray paint, but it’s also magnetic!!!) p.s. normal chalk paint works too for this DIY
  • and of course a chalk stick

Occorrente

  • una “fetta” di legno circolare
  • scotch di carta
  • spray effetto lavagna o tinta effetto lavagna. (Questo spray รจ super speciale: non soloย รจย effetto lavagna ma รจ anche magnetico!!!)
  • e ovviamente un gessetto

 

1. Tape the wood slice however you want. I am going with a (geometric) circle but you can always fix it later.
1. Comincia mettendo lo scotch come preferisci. Se il cerchio viene fuori male puoi sempre sistemarlo dopo.

2. Spray the wood slice! I sprayed mine 3 times in order to make it magnetic. If you’re using regular chalk paint I think that you can go with one or 2 layers.
2. Dai lo spray al legno. Io ho dato 3 strati per far sรฌ che diventasse calamitato ma se stai usando la tinta normale con pennello penso che uno o due strati bastino.

3. Let it dry for 10 minutes and, satisfying part, then peel the tape off.
3. Lascia asciugare per 10 minuti e poi, la parte piรน soddisfacente, togli lo scotch di carta.

4. Now we need to decorate this chalkboard! If you have a good handwriting then go ahead and write on the chalkboard. If you’re more like me,ย grab your computer, open Word or whatever you’re using and type anything you want. I wanted something about fall so I choseย Hello Fall.ย Pick the perfect font and size and print it! Remember you can download a bunch of fonts online
4. Ora bisogna decorare questa lavagnetta! Se hai una bella scrittura fai a mano libera, se sei un po’ come me invece, prendi il computer, apri Word o qualunque altro programmaย e scrivi quello che vuoi. Io volevo qualcosa riguardo l’autunno quindi ho deciso di scrivereย Hello Fall.ย Scegli il carattereย che preferisci, decidi la misura del carattere e stampa! Ricorda che puoi scaricare un sacco di caratteri online!

5. Now grab a chalk stick (hopefully bigger than mine ๐Ÿ˜…) and trace the letters on the back, just like on the pictures. Tape the sheet of paper on the wood slice so that the words are in the middle.
5. Prendi un gessetto (che sia piรน grande del mio magari ๐Ÿ˜…) gira il foglio e disegna le lettere da dietro come nelle foto. Attacca il foglio sul legno in modo che le parole siano al centro.

6. Grab a pencil and trace the letters contour. Remember to push so that the chalk can transfer on the chalkboard.
6. Prendi una matita e traccia i contorni delle lettere. Ricordati di premere per far trasferire il gesso sulla lavagna.

7. This is what you should get. If it is a bit messy, carefully clean it with your fingers. Now fill it with the chalk stick
7. Dovrebbe venirti fuori cosรฌ. Seย รจย un po’ sbavato pulisci delicatamenteย con le dita. Ora riempi le lettere a mano con il gessetto.

P.s. blow the chalk’s excess away while you do it
P.s. soffia via il gesso in piรน mentre riempi le lettere

Aaand you’re done!

  1. I JUST grabbed a can of chalk board spray paint on impulse last weekend and had no idea what I was going to do with it but figured I’d find something to spray. What a great idea and I might be copying it soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is actually so much easier than I thought it would be, it has definitely inspired me to be doing some DIY for my room soon! โค And your blog layout is just beautiful! BTW, you're brilliant to be making a bi-lingual blog – I think that takes a lot of effort and skill, which shows care for your blog and your audience ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you so much!!! It actually is so easy, you should definitely try it and show me!
      And thank you for noticing the bi-lingual thing ๐Ÿ˜ I have been studying languages for 12 years now and I speak 5. I’ll just stick to Italian and English for this blog for now though ๐Ÿ˜…

      1. Wow! 5 languages is impressive, I’ve taught myself a little Spanish, French and Italian but I’m not terribly great at any of them! I especially love !talian, I taught myself on a website called Memrise. You’re welcome ๐Ÿ˜€ Hopefully I get some free time soon, and when I do, I’ll show you ๐Ÿ™‚
