DIY Chalkboard Christmas Art

This is the first year in a while that I've had a mantle to decorate at Christmas time.  If I'm honest with you, I have been staring at my mantle for over a week trying to figure out what in the world to do with it.  I needed something long that complimented our tall ceilings.  I found a leftover piece of plywood in my garage, and so came about this easy DIY.  I always have chalkboard paint on hand, so this mini project didn't even require an extra trip to the store. 
( You're also getting a glimpse of our living room…..remember this post about the floor-to-ceiling painted brick fireplace?  We've decided that needs to wait until we get hardwood floors.  So, until then…'s a work in progress:).  



  1. I love it! Are the stockings hanging from that branch?

    1. Thanks Caroline, yeah it's a piece of driftwood from the beach near our house in NY:)

    2. Wow, so perfect!!! It's meaningful and beautiful!
