DIY Chalkboard Speech Bubbles

Kami Bigler, blogger at “No Biggie,” shares her ideas, and a quick tutorial on how to make your own chalkboard speech bubble.

What you need to make your own Chalkboard Speech Bubble:

• white or black foam core board
• one X-acto knife
• a cutting board
• black Chalkboard Paint
• white chalk

1. Using the X-acto knife, cut the foam core board to the shape of speech bubble you want. You can trace out a shape or do it free hand.

2. Paint both sides of the speech bubble with the black chalkboard paint. I like to do this on a big piece of cardboard. Chalkboard paint dries pretty quick.

3. Once dry on both sides, chalk up the side you want to use with a piece of white chalk, and then wipe it off. This gives it that wore-in chalkboard look.

4. Now you are ready for your photos! Go…have some fun with them!
