Hello! Welcome to this month’s Pinterest Challenge, where we actually MAKE a project we have pinned, rather than just pinning them. How many times do you see something on Pinterest and you are so inspired and determined to make it, but you get busy and just don’t get to it. What I love about this challenge is we have a date to share it so it motivates us to follow through. Love a little motivation!
Fall Chalkboard Embroidery Hoop Wreath
I’m pretty obsessed with the pretty embroidery hoop wreaths that are so popular. I made a Winter Embroidery Hoop Wreath last year:
I saw this fall embroidery hoop wreath and thought it was so pretty. I liked the simplicity and the small white pumpkins. Then inspiration struck! I just received a round magnetic chalkboard that looked about the same size as the embroidery hoop. I checked and sure enough, it fit perfectly in the hoop. Don’t you just love when things work out like that? Here is an easy tutorial.
Have you heard about Chalk Couture? It is pretty cool stuff. I’ve always loved chalkboards and have a large one that I like to decorate seasonally. However, I’ve never really been great in creating chalkboard art. That is where Chalk Couture comes in. Now you can create beautiful chalkboard art quickly and easily. Plus, you don’t need a cutting machine to create stencils. The transfers are reusable, making it very cost effective. All I did was place the wreath transfer on the round chalkboard and then used white chalk paste with the small squeegee.
It only takes a little paste and you can scrape back what is left into the container. This will last a long time which means I can make even more chalkboard art! Look at how crisp the transfer comes out:
Next up, I chose to add Welcome, but I think Blessed or Thankful would be perfect for Thanksgiving as well. To give it a little contrast, I went with a pretty teal blue color. Be sure to let the first image dry before adding the second. It only takes a few minutes to dry.
You can touch up any mistakes with a q-tip and a little water like I did with the small line in the right hand corner you see below:
Not bad for my first time, right? When you are ready to change it out, just use water and you can wipe it off to create something new. But, it will not smudge or come off unless you use water.
Next, place the finished chalkboard in the embroidery hoop. You don’t even have to add any glue as it fits nice and tight.
Now you can finish off the wreath with the lambs ear using a little hot glue. I only lightly hot glued the pumpkins, as I plan to update this for Christmas, maybe with berries or small ornaments.
This entire process took under 30 minutes. It is really fun to create with these products and I didn’t stop there. Look at this adorable Farmhouse Sign I made at the same time:
You can see all the cool transfers and different chalk paste colors they sell here. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this post. If so, please pin the image below. Have a great day!
