Easy DIY: Chalkboard Christmas Ornaments

Chalkboard Christmas Ornaments - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

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!

Supplies:

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:

  1. Decide on your message (Baby’s first Christmas, Couple’s anniversary date, person’s name, etc.)
  2. Write your message
  3. Decorate
  4. Enjoy!

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!

Christmas Art Print: Free Download

Hello everyone!

Christmas is almost here, and I’m super excited! Are you?!

I have a Christmas themed art print to share with you today!  As you know, I love my brush pens and hand lettering.  For the past few days, I have been working on transforming a few of my lettering projects into digital art prints! So exciting!! 🙂

This free download would be perfect for a last minute Christmas or hostess gift, planner dashboard, party decor, etc!  The possibilities are practically endless with this one!

My “Merry & Bright” print is available in both red and green.  It’s formatted to be a 5×7 but can easily be transformed into an 8×10 by leaving a 3″ white border around the edges.

I really love the look of the 8×10!  I think the white border adds a little something to it!  It’s up to you which size you’d like though.

You can print this art on any kind of paper you’d like, but I think this canvas texture cardstock is a fantastic choice!  The canvas look adds a little something to the print and in my opinion, makes it look nicer.

I got this pack at Jo-Ann Fabrics, but you can probably find something similar at other arts and crafts stores.

 

 

Just like with my sticker printables, these art prints are for personal use only.  You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim these works as your own.

I have theses prints available in both PNG and PDF file formats.

To download a PNG file, click on one of the images above, click “view full size,” right click and save image, and then print as desired.  If you don’t click “view full size,” a much smaller image will be saved to your computer.

I hope you really enjoy these prints!  I know I had a ton of fun making them and look forward to making more for you all in the future!

Merry Christmas!
