I love thinking outside the box and being able to repurpose items. I found this chalkboard for a $1 and thought it would be great to add to a wreath for the front door after I added some magic to it of course!

Using a few items and my favorite crackle paint I was able to transform this into something wonderful for my fall décor.

I hope you enjoy the project.

Love this piece you make things look smooth and easy. I’m just learning mixed media and am really enjoying the journey

I love your process. And your stencils. I bought the pumpkin, pitchers, and cotton stencils, and my project (6 hours -first one I've done) came out great! I shared it at show and tell with a library craft group, pointed them to your website. I see now that it's time to purchase the owl! Thanks for sharing!
