Darling Chalkboard Holiday Ornaments – Christmas in July

Hello fellow makers!  Miranda here from Tinsel + Wheat guest blogging with Spellbinders as we celebrate Christmas in July! I’m so excited to show you how easy these little chalkboard stocking ornaments are to re-create.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Cut your stockings out.

Cut out as many stockings as desired with your Platinum 6 machine, naughty or nice steel rule die, and balsa wood. Your sandwich die starting from the bottom up will be clear acrylic plate + your naughty or nice steel rule die + balsa wood + acrylic plate.

Step 2:  Paint your stockings.

Paint your stockings using black chalkboard paint. Make sure to paint both sides, this will help prevent warping.

Step 3: Add trim.

Start with your twine ornament loop, then add the rest of your trim.  For these stockings, I used burlap trim, lace, ball trim and twine.

Step 4: Personalize

Personalize your stockings with a little message using a chalk pen.

These stocking ornaments will make the cutest gifts or can be used as beautiful gift tags!  They take just minutes to make.
