My first order of business was covering my board with ribbon. I wanted the background to have lots of color and pattern since I would be adding a more plain chalkboard overtop. I cut the ribbons to size and glued the edges to the back for a clean look.

Today I am sharing this fun Stay Sharp succulent picture I created. It’s a great easy DIY with Christmas just around the corner.
Cute gold scissors (always a must)
Gold Paint Pen
Chalk (or colored pencil)
Next I sprayed a piece of cardboard with chalkboard paint and cut it into an oval shape. I wanted a whimsical look, so I purposefully cut it not perfect. I added some gold trim with the paint pen.
Here is my tip of the day! For a chalk look without future smears, use a white colored pencil. Be sure you know what your design will look like because you can’t erase once you start.
I added a little “stay sharp” sign and added a small piece of cardboard to the back to give it some dimension.
I love how it turned out!
It has a chalkboard vibe but with more whimsey and color.
