Christmas Chalkboard Template {Tutorial}

I am so sad about the violence and sadness in Connecticut yesterday and my heart truly aches for the innocent victims and their families. What a horribly senseless tragedy.

I squeezed Ella and cried yesterday. I squeezed her and poured a thousand kisses on her, as she tried with all her little might to wiggle away. I felt like I couldn't love on her enough. 

Let that be a lesson to me.

Today, I wanted to leave you with a pretty simple template for my Chalkboard {I showed [here] in my Christmas Home Tour} in case you wanted to add some chalk art to your home for Christmas. You can see a tutorial on how to easily do chalkboard art for yourself {here}. For this one I used the new {old school} overhead projector my awesome hubby bought for me off of Craigslist. But, if you don't have a projector, the tutorial is a super simple way to do it. Trust me, I have done it many times! Don't be intimidated! You can do it!!


For this template, all you have to do is click on it to open, then right click, copy, and paste it into a document, make sure it is centered, and print. 
Please remember that this is for personal use only. Let me know if you use it! I love to see people's fun chalkboards. I actually have a whole Pinterest board {here} dedicated to chalkboard inspiration!


I have some fun {pretty eye candy} things planned for next week... including a tour of my craft room! 
See you then :)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, spent enjoying and appreciating those you love.

Your chalkboard looks great. Thank you for the graphic. I don't have a chalkboard but it is on my list of things to try. Hug that little girl tightly!

Love the chalkboard, and how generous giving the template away.
