instructions

  1. Paint your frame with Vintage Teal and let dry.
  2. Measure and cut your foam core to fit inside your frame.  Paint your foam core with Multi-Surface Chalk Board Paint and let dry. Once your foam core is totally dry, season your Chalk Board Paint by covering it with regular white chalk, then erasing it with a dry rag or paper towel.
  3. Cut out the words and shapes you’ll need from your mesh stencil packs to create your calendar. Arrange the stencils onto your surface. It’s helpful to use a piece of chalk to mark where each row of your calendar will fall. Remove the backing from your adhesive stencil and place them on your surface.
  4. Squeeze your Liquid Chalk Paint onto your squeegee, and apply the paint to your stencil by dragging the squeegee over your stencil. Replenish your squeegee with more paint if needed.
  5. Remove your stencils from your surface while the paint is still wet.
  6. Wash your wet stencil with warm water to reuse.
