Chalkboard Necklace Tutorial by BrideBlu

**Hi friends! I’m currently in Australia, swimming with sea turtles and singing at the Opera House. In the meantime, please show some love to this week’s fun guest bloggers! I’ll be home soon (hopefully with a kangaroo in my possession.)**

“Hello, howdy, g’day mates!  While Julie is away on her “down under” vacay (so jealous and, at the same time, so exicted for her … she promised to take lots of pictures … kangaroos, koolas, hooray!), she invite me to invade her lovely blog and share with you a diy!

Today, I am going to show you how you can make a sweet, miniature chalkboard necklace. This necklace would make for a super fun (any occasion) gift, as you can include just about any message your heart desires on the chalkboard. Some ideas to get the brain cells moving…get well, bff, love, a special date, initials, a sweet simple “hi”!…you get the drift!

Without further ado…let’s get crafting!

What you’ll need:

  • Rust-oleum specialty Chalk Board spray
  • a bezel pendant (you could find one at your local bead store or even purchase one through Etsy…this or this would do nicely)
  • finished chain
  • a scrap of satin ribbon
  • glue (I highly recommend a tube of E6000, it is inexpensive, amazingly strong and long lasting!)
  • painter’s tape
  • newspaper
  • basic white chalk

STEP 1: Using the painter’s tape, tape your pendant down onto your newspaper being careful to cover any areas you don’t want “chalk boarded” with the tape.

STEP 2: In a well ventilated area (i.e. outside) apply 2-3 light coats of “Chalk Board” spray to the exposed surface of the pendant (wait approximately 3-4 minuets between coats). Let dry.

STEP 3: Once the “Chalk Board” finish has had time to thoroughly dry (a couple of hours or so should be suffice), carefully remove the protective painter’s tape from the pendant.

STEP 4: Tie a bow with your ribbon. Trim ends to desired length.

STEP 7: Using your chalk write the message of your choice onto the pendant (using the edge of a brand new piece of chalk will help you write small and clearly).

STEP 8: If you are giving as a gift, place pendant and a piece of chalk into a gift bag (I chose an organza gift bag with a bit of a shimmer in a fun, bright color).

What do you think friends, will you try this? Warning, you may very well become addicted to adding chalkboard finishes to just about anything (that chalkboard spray is really slick and it works on a multitude of surfaces!).
