Custom Chalkboard Door Hanger Tutorial

Kids are back in school and we are working hard around our house to encourage reading and good study habits. To help Bella enjoy some quiet time in her room we made a custom chalkboard door hanger! So now her big brother (bubby) will leave her alone while she is reading!

Our door hanger was super simple to make and Bella couldn’t be more thrilled! We found wooden door hangers at Hobby Lobby. Bella gave the wooden door hanger three coats of chalkboard paint with a foam brush.

Let the chalkboard paint dry completely. Once dry prepare the surface by rubbing a piece of chalk completely over the surface. Wipe off the chalk.

Now it is ready to be decorated. Regular chalk can be used but we love these chalk markers from Michaels.
