Here is a simple Fall decor idea that is ultra cheap and pretty darn easy! If you have a few box lids, you are half way there, and if you have some chalkboard paint and plain white chalk, then you’re home free. I decorated these lids with Fall sayings and what not, but they can be erased and re-chalked (is that a word?) for any season or no season at all.
Chalkboard painted box lids
Find some plain old box tops or lids
Paint those tops and lids with a few coats of chalkboard paint, per directions.
Write out your sayings with plain old white chalk……. and your done!
Tip: To make the box lids a little more sturdy for hanging, apply several coats of decoupage on the inside of the box lids.
I like that they work like a faux canvas, but I can change them up as the season’s change.
One of the box tops was a little flimsy, so I don’t think that one would hang well on the wall, but the other two box lids are pretty sturdy and will hang, no problem on the wall.
