DIY Wood Chalkboard

I originally came across this little jem on Pinterest and discovered where it originated Smashed Peas and Carrots
I had no idea where to get a tree stump and was about to venture out in the woods when Mrs. Hahn Daydreams told me I could find pieces of wood at Michael's. So instead of heading out in the woods I headed towards Michael's to gather supplies.
{What you will need}
Tree stump ($10)
Ribbon ($1)
Sponge brush (.25)
Tape (garage)
Chalkboard paint ($6)
Following suit of Smashed Peas and Carrots mom I created an outline with tape for the chalkboard boarder. Because Lord knows I cannot paint a straight line to save me life.
Then you paint once let dry for an hour
paint twice and dry for 24 hours
Finally after all that drying you can condition your chalkboard by rubbing a piece of chalk over the chalkboard paint. I found the colored chalkboard paint at Michael's. They also had other colors besides teal.
I plan on hanging this little jem in my classroom come the new school year
