Chalkboard Gift Idea

Do you all love chalkboards or is it just me?
I've been putting chalkboards together out of all kinds of picture frames lately. 
I found some frames at Hobby Lobby that I thought had a perfect look and would make a great gift. 
They come in a variety of sizes. 
I like the 5 x 7 and the 8 x 10.

Take out the glass and simply paint the backer board with chalkboard paint.

I give a couple of pieces of chalk with the gift. 

I love the rusticity of these frames. 

I've given this twice and made one for myself. 
This last one was a little bit of a fail.

Happy Birthay!
I think I was worried about the message fitting in the frame. 
Happy Gifting.


  1. I've painted a few chalkboards as birthday gifts, and the recipients loved them! I especially like your chalkboard with the rustic frames. I'm going to have to check out frames the next time I visit Hobby Lobby. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I've made tons of chalkboards and never thought to give one as a birthday gift - what a great idea Katie !!!

  3. Oh how cute! I love the frames you found for them.

  4. Great idea for a birthay! {giggle} These are so cute. I do love chalkboards, also. Great gift idea!
