Chalkboard Christmas Countdown

If you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen my latest Chalkboard chicken scratches Art!

I freehanded, rather quickly I might add because I was running out of natural light and it's hard enough to get a photo of our chalkboard since you practically have to climb inside the pantry to do so! It's across from our pantry in a small walk through hallway.

I wanted to reuse the magnetic snowball numbers I had made from our Olaf Disney Countdown last year, so was looking for something with a round shape that I could put them in. I have an entire board full of Chalk Art on Pinterest, so turned to that for inspiration before I got started. 

The truck with a wreath was perfect, if you want to see the original, Jenn who blogs over at Clean and Scentsible is the original artist. I just looked at hers on my phone, while sketching and created my own little Pinterest knock off!

Tips for creating your own chalk art : Make it your own & have fun! Keep a pencil sharpener handy to create a nice outline. Turn your chalk sideways to fill in large areas. Use your finger or a Q-Tip to blend away harsh lines and fill in small areas.

Above the words, I now have envelopes for each of our children, they are doing extra jobs/chores around the house to earn money for Christmas presents...
