DIY Wood Medallion Chalkboard Christmas Ornament

here is an easy DIY project that would be super cute for teacher gifts, random acts of kindness gifts or just to have on your own tree.

here are the supplies i used to make these ornaments:

tree limb
hand saw
drill with small bit
chalkboard paint
sanding paper

find a tree limb that is the width you prefer. keep in mind larger sizes will not hand properly on a tree so keep it about 3 inches. use your handsaw and slice as many pieces off that you would like. always do a few more than needed just in case you mess up on something.

get your sand paper and sand the side you are going to paint just enough to get the grain of the wood smooth. go ahead and drill a hole at the top portion...not too close to the top to prevent splitting or breaking.

use chalkboard paint to create your surface. allow it to dry 12-24 hours.

prime your chalkboard surface by lightly running the chalk over the chalk paint area and the cleaning off with a dry/lightly damp cloth.

run your twine through the drilled whole and tie.

now draw your designs. simple as that!

enjoy and if you make your own send me an email to amanda {at} so i can share!
