Mini Chalkboard Napkin Rings/Placecards January 23, 2013 DIY, Entertaining, Home Decor, Parties and Entertaining Tutorials 2 Comments 3476 Is there anything cuter than the tiniest chalkboard in the world? Tiny enough to be a napkin ring? Isn’t it sweet? The best part about these little guys is that they are multi-functional 🙂 More on that in a bit, but first I’ll share how I made them. You know that impulse item aisle at Michaels? Yeah it gets me every.single.time. Lucky for me though, they did actually have something I was looking for specifically for this project: miniature ornate frames for $1/ea. I bought 6, and gathered my chalkboard paint and Rub n’ Buff (which I later decided not to use in favor of white spray paint and glitter). First all the frames got 3 coats of chalkboard paint which was allowed to cure 24 hours per the instructions. If the middle part came out, it would have been a lot easier…but hey these were $1, so… Then the center got taped off so I could spray the frame edge white. Then I trimmed the base of the stand because it kept peeking out the bottom. I spray painted all the frames white, then added some glitter with Mod Podge. To turn them into napkin rings, I threaded some ribbon threaded through the back of the frame. But, because I left the stand on the back, these also double as mini chalkboards for labeling food on a buffet… Or writing a message on and displaying… Or hanging up on a wall to make sure everyone knows whose house they’re in. But I think I still love them best as napkin rings/placecards 🙂 2 Responses Tyler J.

I love that this won’t war with my lack of talent or my lack of funds, either.
