Here’s what you’ll need ~

  • Chalkboard Contact Paper
  • Scissors to cut contact paper to size
  • A plastic card to smooth down any bumps
  • Chalk

And here’s how to do it . . .

  • Cut contact paper to fit board.
  • Smooth down with credit card (I actually used the card to smooth it down with, and then creased it very tightly in the corners. The card did the cutting too!)
  • “Cure” the contact paper by using the flat side of the chalk and completely covering the contact paper
  • You’re all done! You could also add vinyl letters to write “menu” and “grocery list”
