You all know how much I love my vintage, tarnished silver! I collect a piece every chance I get.
Today's project is really quick and easy.
I started with this beautiful tarnished piece of silver. I did nothing to it except wash the dirt off of it. I then painted the inside of it with Americana Chalkboard Paint. It took two coats to cover good. This comes in small - 4 oz. - containers at your local craft store.
I then took an old silver spoon that was very ornate and slightly bent it so that it had a curve in the handle. I used E6000 glue to glue the spoon onto the silver platter. Use the glue at both ends of the spoon that connect to the platter.
At this point, I made a chalk holder. I used some old lace that was just a tad wider than the chalk and sewed up each side to form a pocket for the chalk.
Loop the chalk holder over the curve standing up on the spoon and tied and stitch till you feel it is substantial.
Add a hanger on the back and you are done!!
A cute piece that would fit several places in your home!
