DIY Blackboard Accessories For Your Wedding


Chalkboards are a great way to add a casual, vintage touch to your wedding reception. 

We've got some tips below, thanks to Polka Dot Bride, on how to create your own chalkboard accessories to style your wedding!

To create a look such as the below, you will need:
  • Empty wine bottle (washed and dried)
  • Kraft board tags and number (from craft store)
  • Placemat (from craft store)
  • Blackboard paint and brush
  • Chalk

The only trick is to use a fine bristle brush and do thin coats (drying thoroughly in between) so you get a smoother finish that’s easier to write on.

Some ideas of accessories that you can create for your wedding tables (or even at home) include a table number/letters, place mat, candle holders, tags and decorations (can be made from bottles, jars). The possibilities are endless!

Make sure you have some chalk handy, so that guests at your reception can leave a message or drawing at their table.
