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.
The main focus of my Easter party was the chalkboard backdrop. I created it using only newspaper and chalkboard paint.
How to create a newspaper backdrop:
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 around it once dry.
I then wrote out my ‘Easter Celebration Party’ message with regular white chalk.
To dress up the chalkboard a little for the party, I found some festive paper flowers. These are similar and such happy colors.
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!
Next, I will be sharing how to create the adorable Easter cups shown above and then how to craft the adorable mint green tissue paper eggs. Be sure to check back for the details!
