106 More Days...

...till my sister gets married!!  Her shower is coming up in a few months, but I just couldn't wait to give her a little something.  When I was waiting for my wedding day, I loved having a countdown calendar.  Since a 100+ day countdown calendar seemed like it would be a little, um, huge.  So I turned to my oh-so-awesome can of chalkboard paint :)

I picked up a small wooden plaque and sprayed it with 4 coats of chalkboard paint


Then I rounded up (ok, I mostly went out and bought) some pretty, sparkly ribbon in shades of white, silver and cream


I created a strip of rag garland using all that sparkly ribbon and some strips of white and cream cotton fabric to give it tons of fluffiness.  To assemble, I just used my staple gun to adhere the rag garland handle to the back and viola...wedding countdown chalkboard:


I liked this lil hanging chalkboard so much that I've got a few more in the works...and I'm offering one of them up for my first eva giveaway!  On Saturday, I'm going to use my nifty random generator to pull one of my (amazingly awesome!) followers.

Ummm, I LOVE this! I feel like it could be modified for all sorts of occasions (I'm pregnant, for example, so we could make a due date count down). Isn't chalkboard paint fabulous???
Thanks for linking up... what a terrific project!

That's such a great idea. I have yet to make anything with chalkboard paint, but I really like the countdown idea.
