In my Fun Hearts Garland Post, we totally established that I lOVE lots of things…

And here I am telling you that I LOVE Chalkboards, too!

I got some canvases before Christmas to make a fun project {that never happened..sigh}, so I decide I NEEDED some Chalkboard LOVE Canvases for my Valentine Mantel.

You might need some food and water and atmoshpere, but I need chalkboards. There. I said it.

{I also need to pay the tax man… unfortunately!}

Annnnnnnyhooooo, I do love these little guys…

I had some Chalkboard Paint leftover from my Chalkboard Tags, so I just used the rest of it to paint 4 canvases.

And Paint them I did.

It took 3 solid coats to get the white completely covered.

Next, I cured it with some chalk by rubbing a stick over the entire surface of the canvas.

I could have used an actual eraser to wipe off the chalk, but I prefer sock puppets instead…

Hello, says Linty, the sock puppet

Sock Puppet to the rescue… wiping away the chalk dust.

To draw the letters on the Canvases, I printed out some giant letters.

{I made a pdf for you. The download link is at the end of the post-io.}

To make the transfer, turn the printed letter over and rub chalk on the back.

Then place your letter where you want it and trace the outline of the letter.

When you lift the paper, you’ll see a faint chalk line.

Just trace that line with the actual chalk.

I added some embellishments, cuz that’s just how I roll, yo.

Here are all the canvases before I hung them above the mantel.

Yes… LOVE them!

I have them all hung up now, and I can’t wait to show them to you with my Gorgeous Coffee Filter Heart Wreath and stuff.  It’s the first ever mantel I’ve ever really done besides a generic one and a Christmas one.
