As I started dreaming about this year’s Easter Celebration party, I came across Tiny Print’s Miraculously Smiling Canary Easter card. I instantly fell in love with the colors and style. I knew right away my party would be filled with cheerful spring colors + patterns, lots of chalkboard and a few fun crafts.The Easter card I selected was actually meant to have a family photo at the top, but I quickly designed a chalkboard graphic and added orange stripes to the background and viola’, my card was turned into a fun chalkboard invite! I just couldn’t pass up the colors and patterns of the “Easter” text at the bottom.
I stapled six sheets of newspaper together and then blocked off my “chalkboard area”. Using chalkboard spray paint, I gave it about three light coats of paint and then used a gold foil paint pen to create a border. I then wrote out my ‘Easter Celebration Party’ message with chalk.To dress up the chalkboard a little for the party, I found (let’s be honest, I ran full speed ahead to Target the moment Oh Joy’s party line came out) some festive paper flowers. I also cut out one of my party invitation in the shape of a flower. Using a hot glue gun, I attached ribbon as leaves to the flowers and then to the chalkboard!
