What’s the best way to effortlessly convey the holiday mood in your home? A chalkboard, of course! It’s one the cleverest Christmas decorating ideas we’ve seen lately. In our Holiday Style Challenge series, bloggers grabbed the chalk to express their holiday merriment! Whether you depict a faux tree, a dangling mistletoe, or a simple message of joy, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Who needs the real stuff when you can smooch your sweetie under a chalkboard mistletoe! Draw a fancy mistletoe on a gold framed chalkboard, as we see in the blue and gold living room of Carrie, the creative mind behind Dream Green DIY. (It was inspired by a print by by Lianne Tokey, available online at Goods That Give Back. What a clever idea!)
Try hanging a giant DIY chalkboard just outside your front door like Michelle, of 4Men 1 Lady, did in our Holiday Style Challenge. This is a great way to welcome guests, especially if you have a covered front stoop!
If you have some extra space on your front porch, take a hint from Lakeitha Duncan, and set up a cozy seating area to watch the neighborhood snowball fight. Don’t forget the festive chalkboard!
If you’ve volunteered to host a party or a family get-together this year, designate the drink station with a fabulous ribbon chalkboard like Erin, of House of Earnest, did here.
Traci, of Beneath my Heart, cozied up her Christmas tree reading nook with a modern chalkboard look in a neat, traditional shape.
What about you? Do you like the chalkboard look? Will you incorporate a chalkboard message into your holiday decor this year?
