I was making a return to Marshall’s the other day and did a quick peek through their seasonal decor section.  I found this adorable black chalkboard on sale for $7.99, what a deal!

I liked that my metal frame had a few chips and dings on it.  It gave it more character especially for the fall time.  The first thing I did was to “season” the chalkboard.  I didn’t want the crisp clean black look.

Seasoning a chalkboard simply means writing all over the chalkboard to give the actual board a more chalky and used look.  Once you have written across the entire thing, you can use a paper towel or a chalkboard eraser to clean it up.  Don’t use water or you will need to season your chalkboard all over again.

Last year I had bought this adorable fabric cake bunting and have since used it on numerous items as the perfect colorful touch.  It came in handy on this project, too!

I played around with different fancy chalk type prints, but in the end settled on a very simple uppercase with BOO being a little more special with the O’s as pumpkins.
