Chalkboard Ornaments

My chalkboard paint habit has leaked into Christmas. I made these chalkboard ornaments for my peeps.

I bought these bright pink ornaments on sale. They were pretty... almost hated printing over them.

I stuck kabob skewers in styrofoam to hold the ornaments while I sprayed them. I have found for some things chalkboard spray makes the smoothest surface.

With each gift recipient's name on an ornament it make a great gift tag.

They looked so cute under the tree.

What was in each gift box? A cuppow on a personalized mason jar with their favorite drink.

I think Tina liked hers!


  1. Did you use a Silhouette machine to personalize the mason jars?

  2. I just made a gift bag of my favorite things for a wedding this sunday. I put in a can of ORB spraypaint and chalkboard spraypaint! I would have added a can of my fave hot pink but i did not make it to Michael's and there is no way in heck I am going to Michael's fri or sat before xmas!

    Long live chalkboard spraypaint!
    And nice smooth job! Did you use a cooshie handle thingie?

  3. Deanna - I had another brand handle and it was awful... paint all over my hand. I'll look for the cooshie one.

  4. such cute presents! I've loved watching you and Tina over the years through the various holidays! :)
