Chalkboard paint has put its stamp on just about everything from refrigerators to dining tables to terra-cotta pots, and we love chalkboards in just about every scenario. So naturally, we couldn’t miss yet another opportunity to have some fun with Rust-Oleum’s Chalkboard paint.

You’ll need the following materials for this DIY chalkboard wreath:

Step 1

Begin by painting the inside of your ceiling medallion with chalkboard paint. I left the outside moulding of the medallion white because I liked the way it framed the chalkboard area, but you can paint the entire medallion if you want! Use a foam brush to get an even paint job. We also added a little bit of Floetrol to our chalkboard paint. Floetrol is a paint conditioner that slows down the drying time. By doing this, brush strokes and brush drag even out before the paint dries.
