Hey there! Today I have a fun craft that you can make in just four super easy steps.

DIY Chalkboard Tile Place Card Holders


These fun chalkboard tile place card holders are perfect for a fun get-together and they could not be more simple to make. I was inspired to make these when I saw Pottery Barn’s slate tile place card holders in their catalog.

Honestly people,  I wish I could buy one of everything in Pottery Barn (maybe even two of some things!). But until the big money starts rolling in, I will have to find a creative way to get a similar look for cheaper. For around $20 bucks you can buy their 14 tiles and two wooden stands or….you can do like I did and make your own for about $4.

DIY Nautical Nursery Art

 

What you’ll need:

artwork-diy-2

  • 3 12×12 canvases
  • 3 2oz bottles of acrylic paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Vinyl
  • Contact Paper
  • Acetone (optional)

Start by cutting out the chain link background using your silhouette machine and stretch it in the studio to match your canvas size. Initially I thought I could use one chainlink background for all three canvases, but the pictures turn out much better if you used a fresh vinyl each time. The vinyl will cost less than the canvas, so in my opinion it’s worth it.
