Ok…so I am totally OBSESSED with Chalkboards!!! In August I created this Back to School Chalkboard for my daughter’s first day of Preschool and fell in love with using chalkboards in decor!!! When I started playing around with Christmas designs, I found myself continually gravitating back to chalkboards. I kept trying to include Chalkboards in all my designs!!
It was clear to me there was only one thing to do…
I mixed in some of my FAVORITE fonts and some awesome candy canes prints to give it that vintage holiday look. I paired the red and white stripes with some aqua stripes and polka dots for a little pizzazz… I also included enough wintery, non-Christmas elements that it is still completely usable for the non-Christmas crowd.
The best part about this printable set, it’s FREE:) Yep, totally FREE!!
Now you might be saying to yourself right now:
Self, I don’t know how to customize these printables!! All the writing areas are charcoal, chalk board colored. How can I use the invite and the labels??
Easy Peasy, since it wouldn’t really look “chalkboard-y” if I put big white squares all over it to write on, we have to think outside the box a little bit with this one. White or silver sharpies, paint pens!! (Fine tipped preferable like this Sharpie Paint Markers white extra fine or this Elmer’s Painters Opaque Paint Marker, Fine Tip, White) Personally, I would opt for the sharpie as it gives a little more control than the paint pen, but both work great!!!
So whether you are chalkboard obsessed, or just love FREE printables, I hope you enjoy my Peppermint Chalkboard/ Candy Cane Party package!!
P.S. As always….I LOVE to see pictures of what you do with them!!!
