DIY christmas

i am trying to DIY gifts this christmas.  while perusing the internet i came across this post and fell in love with the idea of a chalkboard place mat.  i thought what a perfect gift (bundled with some chalk) for some of my little friends this christmas.

so, i purchased plastic place mats at wal-mart.  i simply sprayed them with a couple of coats of chalkboard paint.  waited 24 hours for them to dry and wrote their names on them for gift-giving purposes.

i realized AFTER i started spraying that i should have probably taken a before photo.
