I love decorating my house for Christmas, and I love making new Christmas decorations each year! Right now I'm completely obsessed with making chalkboards and using chalk paint on everything because it requires zero prep, is easy to use, dries quickly, and looks awesome. Just recently I was looking for Christmas Chalkboard Ideas and was inspired to make this new DIY Christmas chalkboard sign! Keep scrolling to see how how I did it!

Step 3: At this point, you could draw or stencil on your new chalkboard with actual chalk, but I chose to stencil with paint because I don't have hand lettering skills and I wanted the design to be permanent.

Apply the paint to the stencil in multiple light layers. Remove the stencil after applying.
