The first thing you'll need to do is pick a design. You can either design something yourself or find something on Pinterest that you can download into a jpg file. I usually go the Pinterest route but this time I designed my own.
Once you have your design into a jpg file, open the website blockposters.com and upload your file. Go to step 2 and following the measurements to the right, to decide how many pages you want your poster to be, depending on how big your chalkboard is.
After you've printed your poster you'll need to trim off the margins
Next, tape all your pages together
(For some reason my print out glitched and I was missing text but that has never happened to me before. I'll just wing it.)
Flip your poster over and rub chalk generously all over the back
After you've chalked your poster tape it up onto your chalkboard and trace over everything with a pencil. This will lightly transfer your design to your chalkboard!
For bold fonts I usually just trace the outer edge and fill in later...
When your transfer is done it's time to chalk it in! Keep a small bowl of water handy so you can dip the top of your chalk to keep it moist as you go! Wet chalk will give you a nice dark finish.
If you prefer to use a chalk marker those work really nicely as well. I personally had problems with my chalkboard staining so I stick with plain old fashioned chalk. Although I have heard that windex will take the marker off so let me know if you have success with that!!
