Lately I have been crushing hard on chalkboard paint! I change my mind A LOT and chalk boards are seriously perfect decorations for someone who is often changing things up!
I made this banner for my daughter’s 5th birthday a few weeks ago. Super easy. Here is the supply list:
- chalkboard paint in any color (I got mine here)
- foam roller or brush
- heavy cardstock or cardboard pieces
I used pre-made heavy carboard pennant pieces for my banner that I bought at JoAnns. I spread them out on newspaper and rolled the black chalkboard paint on.
I did let it dry and paint a second coat just to get really good coverage.
After your banner pieces are dry, grab the ribbon of your choice and tie the pieces together.
Last step, grab some chalk and write your banner message. Of course since this was a birthday, that is what I chose to chalk on the banner.But….the awesome thing (for you constant mind changers like me) is that you can change the words and switch out the ribbon and have a completely different banner!!!
In my house this banner has now been transformed for Halloween to hang over my spooky decor! The post about my Halloween decorations will go up this week so check back to see the banner transformation!

I have always wanted to try chalkboard paint out. In my future kids play room I am thinking about painting a square for them to draw on.
Cuuuuuute! And you can keep the banner and redo the letters/ribbon for any occasion you might like! This is a need to do on my list of need to do’s…
