I enjoy changing up this framed chalkboard seasonally. Most recently, it had a spring time look to it. Now that the weather has warmed up-we’re hitting ninety degrees in Charleston this week- it’s time for a summer chalkboard. Gloria and I both live in flip flops for much of the year, but with this heat, it’s definitely flip flop season! I didn’t use any special chalkboard transfer methods. It’s quicker and easier to just hand letter it. It might not look uniform, but it works for me! I’m all about simple projects and this one delivers on that!
I used a stencil of some sea shells to outline the shells near the bottom. I colored them in using white and peach chalk. I added a few waves at the very bottom.
To draw the flip flops, I used a pair flip flops. I just held each one up to the chalkboard and traced it. Then I drew lines to separate colors.
I colored the sections in with colors in a random pattern and used a large piece of chalk to go over the outline again.
Using block lettering I wrote “Flip Flop”near the top. I added “season” near the bottom along with the year.
While I love the look of true chalkboard artists, I’m happy to just stick with simple ways to display a fun quote or picture. It fits in well in our Charleston Room which has lots of coastal decor pieces.
This adds a fun touch of coastal decor and because it’s so easy to change it, I’m sure I’ll be changing it again before too long.
