Step 1

Begin by printing off the supplied template. Choose the desired lettering, and rub the reverse using a stick of white chalk.

 

Place the template over the front of the chalkboard in the correct position. Use a soft pencil to draw over the lettering, transferring the design onto the chalkboard.

 

Tip: Please a book of similar depth next to the chalkboard, using it as an arm rest. This will help support your arm when lettering and drawing the design.

Step 2

Use a white paint marker to write onto the chalkboard following the chalk lines. Write using the very tip of the pen with light pressure, adding more pressure as you draw all the downward strokes, making them thicker.

Step 3

When completely dry, wipe over the lettering with a dry paper towel to remove all the chalk marks. 

 

Draw a boarder line around the edge of the chalkboard. Add three groups of diamond/star illustrations around the lettering to decorate.
