How to upcycle an old canvas print using chalkboard paper and felt borders

Filed under: Crafts — faithscookies @ 1:53 pm

If you’re like me you have a few old prints that your children have outgrown.  I originally wanted to use chalkboard paint but Joann’s were out of black paint and I remembered that I had some chalkboard contact paper that I could use.

Here’s what I used: Canvas print, chalkboard contact paper, felt sticky borders, scissors:

 Cut out a piece of your chalkboard contact paper to the size you need. I wanted to cover the giraffe (very cute but a bit too young for my children now).  Carefully peel and stick onto canvas print. You may get a few bubbles underneath the paper so you can easily remove and try again.

Peel and stick felt borders to each side of paper….I chose a light pink and a dark pink as this will be for my daughter. Here you have a simple chalkboard. I’ll probably add some ribbon and hang in her bedroom.

Thanks for reading.
