I was looking around the craft store yesterday and came across some small chalkboard ornaments in the unfinished wood section (Craftwood brand made by Darice).
At 2-in x 3-in, these little chalkboards are the perfect size for a gift tag ornament and come complete with a hang cord attached. They are so inexpensive that you could make one for the teacher, room mother, and even the principal, without breaking the bank.
The chalkboard is recessed exactly 1/8-in so the quilling embellishments fit right in. I added an apple and pencil to mine, but there are many cute school embellishments you could add like a school bus, school bell, or old fashioned school house.
I was afraid that actual chalk would wipe off, so I used a white paint pen (Painters paint marker by Elmers) to paint on the numbers and letters.
Wouldn’t this be a great craft project to make with the kids?
