Decorate A Memo Board

I bought this bird shaped chalkboard during an after Easter sale at Michaels.

It cost less than a dollar, so of course I couldn’t leave it in the store! The only issue was that I was stuck with this board for months because I didn’t know what to do with it, and no one else in my house wanted to use it. I finally decided to give the chalkboard a makeover to fit my personality.

Check out the steps below.


  • Small Chalkboard
  • Decoupage Glue
  • Lace Ribbon
  • Foam Brush
  • Decorative Wrapping Paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Clothespin


  • Use a pencil to trace the outline of the board on the wrapping paper.

  • Cut the shape out of the paper then decoupage it on the chalkboard with decoupage glue. Let the glue dry about 1-2 hours.

  • The final steps of this project involved me adding embellishments to the board. I glued a clothespin to the front of the board as well as a flower and decorative stickers. Then I made a hanger for the board by cutting a piece of lace ribbon and hot gluing it on the back of the board.

I think it turned out beautifully! I plan on adding little notes and photos to my board throughout the week.
