Hello Uncommon Designs readers!
Today I’m sharing a super quick, easy to make ‘Chalkboard Art’ Hot Pad to make in 15 minutes flat!
This DIY Hot Pad has the look of ‘real’ Chalkboard art but it’s washable (no need to worry about gravy drips!) and reusable too! The print won’t disappear or fade away.
This is a great idea for last minute hostess gifts or teacher gifts too!
Chalkboard art and printables are all the rage right now. Here’s a way to give your table settings an adorable chalkboard look and protect your table when serving hot dishes! This would look fabulous at your holiday table!
Tile: Look for inexpensive tiles at your local thrift shop or Habitat for Humanity.
White Paint Pen
Wheat graphic printed off a computer– google ‘wheat graphic’ to pick your favorite or use this wheat graphic.
4 small Felt pads
Paint tile with two coats of chalkboard paint. Let dry between coats.
Rub pencil on back of print where the image is.
Center image on tile and outline the graphic with pen ink to transfer the pencil underneath onto the tile.
Trace the pencil marks with the white paint pen. Let dry.
Add a felt pad to each corner of the bottom of the hot pad.
I love it – so pretty and functional! Doesn’t it look like real chalkboard art? The black and white colors will go with any table setting color scheme too!
This Chalkboard Art Hot Pad can be quickly made in 15 minutes, excluding drying time of the paint.
If giving this as a gift: wrap it in a burlap ribbon and add some decorative metallic leaves. Any hostess would enjoy receiving one!
I hope you enjoyed this DIY Chalkboard Art Hot Pad tutorial. Now I’m off to make some up for teacher’s gifts and a couple more to keep for myself!
