Merry Christmas in July!! Christmas is my favorite holiday and over the last few years, I have been dying to make my own ornaments. I have tried many different mediums but never quite got the results I was looking for. This year, however, I’m finally happy with my chalkboard Christmas ornaments. Follow along below as I share a super simple DIY with you!
- Chalkboard ornaments
- Posca paint pens (I used Ultra Fine but Fine would work as well)
- Laser Square (optional)
I chose to use paint pens instead of chalk markers for this project because I want the designs to last. If you want your design to be removable, use Versachalk markers instead.

Chalkboard Christmas Ornaments
Creating these ornaments is super easy! There are really only a few steps:
- Decide on your message (Baby’s first Christmas, Couple’s anniversary date, person’s name, etc.)
- Write your message
While creating these ornaments, I filmed a few process videos for you, which you can view down below. I like to use my laser square to plan out my word placement and make sure I write them as straight as possible. As you can see, I completely abandon the laser square when it comes time to add embellishments.
My favorite drawing book, Botanical Line Drawing, is perfect for learning how to draw simple leaves, berries, flowers, and etc. Whether you make these ornaments or not, I highly recommend picking up that book! It’s great for adding doodles to anything and everything!

My youngest niece was born this last winter, so I made her a “first Christmas” ornament to mark the occasion coming up this December.
For my eldest niece, I chose to write her name and add a few berries as a little something extra!
I love how both of these turned out and will definitely be making more ornaments as we get closer to the holiday season! I will likely make an ornament for my sweet pup too! Be sure to follow along with me on Instagram. I will be sure to share all my projects on there!
