No need to settle on one design for your patch-to-porch creations. A quick swipe of the cloth transforms your chalkboard pumpkin into a blank canvas as often as creativity strikes. Showcase your chevron designs, use as an address plaque or create a Halloween message board. Forget the classroom, these chalkboards are strictly for extracurricular activities!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- Damp Rag
- Chalkboard Spray Paint
- Chalk or Liquid Chalk Markers
- Optional: Gingham ribbon, paper for chevron print stencil*
Step 1: Set up shop in a well-ventilated area and lay down newspaper or cardboard.
Step 2: Wipe down pumpkins with a damp cloth to remove any dirt.
Step 3: Spray the entire surface with quick bursts of chalkboard paint 10-12” away from the pumpkin. Allow pumpkin to dry, and apply a second coat. Wait 24 hours for paint to set… then chalk away!
*More to adore: Want to add more glam to your gourd? Top it off with a gingham bow or cut out a paper zig-zag stencil for the perfect chevron design.
