Trying to dream up an easy and cheap back-to-school DIY project? Well, my DIY senses are overflowing with ideas since back-to-school season is one of the most exciting times of the year for us moms and the kids! So if you are ready to dive into the fun with me, grab your liquid chalk markers and let me show you one of the coolest and easiest chalkboard art ideas you can use for a back-to-school DIY project.
First on the list of school supplies that every kid needs are notebooks. And buying notebooks with nifty cover designs can be very expensive, especially if you need a whole load of them. Why not make your own instead?
Your own designer cover will be easy to make with a simple stroke of your liquid chalk markers. It will save you a lot of money over buying those fancy high-priced notebooks, and put bigger smiles on your kids' faces! And of course, it will also save you the stress of running around the mall looking for that perfect notebook for your munchkin. Best of all, they will have something unique that no one else can match!
Here are the simple steps you can follow to create your own back-to-school DIY chalkboard notebook cover:
- Have your notebooks ready. They don’t have to be fancy, a simple-looking notepad will do since we are creating its unique cover design.
- Grab some self-adhesive chalkboard contact paper sheets and cut them to the size of your notebooks.
- Wrap the covers of your notebooks with the chalkboard contact paper. Remember, the sheets are self-adhesive, so there will be no need to stress yourself out struggling with pressure-sensitive tape to keep the chalkboard covers in place.
- Now for the fun part! Grab your colorful liquid chalk markers and start designing your notebook covers! You can put cute drawings on them or your child's name and the subject. You can even use the cover as your child's personal notepad, because it is erasable!
See how easy this back-to-school chalkboard art DIY project is to make? You can even do it with your kids! It is a great way to boost their confidence and pride in their creativity, as they show off their personalized DIY chalkboard notebooks to their friends on the first day of class. The unique flair that chalkboard art gives your notebooks will definitely turn heads!
