Vinyl Stencils for Holiday Chalkboard Art

One of my current favorites in the design and home decor world is chalkboard art. I dream of having a large chalkboard wall in my craft room… and I discovered a way to create fun chalkboard art that looks better than anything I could ever draw by hand. 
This will work on a larger scale, but for tutorial purposes I cut a piece of chalkboard vinyl to fit in an 8 x 10 frame. Then, I downloaded the “let it snow” shape from the online store and cut it out of vinyl to use as a stencil. 
After applying the stencil to the chalkboard I used a chalk marker to fill in the letters. 
After waiting patiently for it to dry I removed the stencil vinyl and popped it in a frame. 
The cute hand lettering look… no skill required. *smile* 
If you use this technique, we’d love to see! Details on submitting your project found here
Have a great day, friends!

    I’ve never used chalk markers before. Do they wipe off like regular chalk or are they permanent?

      Hi Julee! They wipe off really easy with a damp cloth or paper towel.

  8. Too clever for words and it does look real! Bet this would work on paper too. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Where can you find chalk markers? I can’t see a brand name in your picture and I’ve never used them before.

    1. jeana says:

      Hi Cindi, they are “bistro chalk markers” made by Uchida of America and I got them from Hobby Lobby.

    Hi. I’m a new follower of your blog thanks to a link from Little Inspiration! Love the chalkboard art! I’m a leftie so my handwriting is a bit challenged! I love the idea of getting the look of a handwritten message without having to actually write it. Great idea!

    1. jeana says:

      Hi Yvette,

      I used the chalkboard vinyl {found here http://silhouetteamerica.com/vinyl.aspx} for the 8×10 piece. For the “let it snow” stencil I used our stencil vinyl. {found here http://silhouetteamerica.com/ink.aspx}
