Fixer Upper Inspired Chalkboard ART


Lately I’ve been marveling at the Magnolia Market website (Chip and Joanna Gaines’ online store) and I’ve been baffled at how easy and simple some of their decorations are! Honestly, who would have thought to hang a Mason Jar from a Chalkboard would be considered CHALKBOARD ART!

The best DIY PROJECTS are always free.

The “chalkboard” hanging frame was an item I picked up at the dollar bin at Target. I had no clue what I would use it for, but for 3$, I couldn’t resist (and so glad I didn’t!). The mason jar was an extra we had in our pantry, the flowers were from Wal-Mart, and the extra rope I had bought at Lowe’s a year or so before.  So easy and yet so simple!

I love the show “Fixer Upper” and more than that I love the Gaines’ style. With that being said, most of what she does is so simple and elegant, and yet she makes it look like a million bucks!

So clearly this DIY CHALKBOARD ART is not a difficult project and I hesitate even showing the steps of how to recreate it.

  1. Hot glue the rope around the Mason Jar.
  2. Hot glue the Mason Jar on the chalk board. Be careful to glue it a little below the center, so if you put flowers or anything else in the mason jars, they won’t hang over the board.
  3. adorn with flowers!

They say the best things in life are free. How about a free project to create CHALKBOARD ART- yes please!
