Decorative Chalkboard Plate// Homemade Christmas 7

Decorative Chalkboard Plate// Homemade Christmas 7

This project is so simple. It can be done in a matter of minutes, but it can give your mantle the little touch of the Christmas spirit it deserves.

As I mentioned in my last post, I've turned into quite the thrift store junkie. I managed to snag the plate you see in the picture for $0.25, the reindeer was $0.50 and the chalkboard paint only cost me $1.07. Basically this project cost me 2 bucks. Definitely my kind of project.

For this project, you will need:

1. Chalkboard paint
2. Decorative plate
3. Decorative embellishment (optional)
4. Glue (preferably E-6000

Basically, all you're going to do is paint the center of the paint with chalkboard paint. It will probably take you 3-4 coats to cover all the spots. Once you're done painting, glue whatever embellishment you would like to the plate.  And you're done. See, super easy.

I'm planning on making a few more of these for friends and family. With a price like this you just can't go wrong. Hope you enjoyed today's post.

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!


  1. That is super easy...AND super cute! Love it!

  2. Think I am going to run out & hunt down some chalkboard paint to make some of these.

    1. It's so easy!! BTW, you can get the decorative plates from the dollar tree. They sell red, green and gold plates so you can pick and choose which colors to use.

  3. This is a project I can get on board with. I want to do it in silver/pewter for my fireplace! Love. Did the paint stick to the glass easy or did you use a plastic type plate?
