The first thing you’ll need is a piece of wood. I food this cute circular piece of wood at my local craft store for $1!  You don’t have to use a a polished piece of wood, I think this craft would be super cute on a tree slice. (image below)

Next, coat the piece of wood in chalkboard top coat. This stuff is AMAZING because it’s clear. That means that you can make literally make anything into a chalkboard.

After applying a thin coat of the chalkboard paint, let the wood dry. Because my top coat was to thin, it only took about 3 minutes to dry. To speed up the drying process, you can use a hair dryer.

Now’s the fun part! Write whatever you want on the piece of wood. I wrote, “Give thanks,” on my piece, but I think if would be so cute to put these out as place settings, with everyone’s name on them, or as labels for all your different dishes.
