Quilled Chalkboard Ornament for Teacher

Published by at 8:10 pm under Christmas Quilling,Quilling with Kids

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.

The back of the chalkboard is nice and smooth making it easy to write the “to” and “from” information — and don’t forget to add the date.

 

Wouldn’t this be a great craft project to make with the kids?

    I love your ornament! This is a perfect teacher gift, oh no, it is that time of the year again and I haven’t started yet… I need someone like you to make sure I get started!
    Hugs, antonella 🙂

    What a great idea. I think I have some of those chalkboards from another project. Another fun idea thanks so much.

    Do you have instructions for the pencil and the apple?
    Thanks!

    Hello, Renee,

    I’m afraid that I don’t have written instructions… I just made the pieces as I went. The apple is made from two red teardrop coils, a shaped marquise for the leaf, and the stem is a piece of brown folded over to make it thicker. The pencil is made from squares with a triangle tip. I used a marker to make the graphite pencil point and piece of metallic silver for the band separating the “eraser” from the pencil shaft.

    I hope you find this information helpful.

    Happy Quilling!
    Charlotte
