Chalk designs….it’s hard to not see them pretty much everywhere you look these days. And to be honest, I can’t get enough of them. (Want a peek at some of favorite chalkboard design ideas? Here’s my newest Pinterest board: Chalk Dust On My Finger Tips. Can you tell I was once a teacher?)
But if I’m going to put that kind of time into a design, whether it be a framed piece in my living room, or a monogram for my door, I want it to stick around for as long as possible!
So, below you’ll find my how-to for making permanent “chalk” designs….no actual chalk required!

1. First Up: How To Make A Permanent “Chalk” Design!
(Just a note here about my stencil: Please don’t be intimidated by the complexity of my stencil, or turned away from this project because I made mine with my CAMEO. Sticky-backed stencils are becoming easier to find. There are a few brands available in your local craft store, and there are even shops online that will create a custom stencil for you.)
Couldn’t be easier, right? And now you don’t have to worry about your beautiful “chalk” design smudging after you’ve spent so much time working on it!
