Need an idea for a cute fall centerpiece? I’ve got one for ya today (yes, I just couldn’t stay away! crashing here on Guest Post Extravaganza)- –
With this post I’m focusing on the pot and gold accents – they’re what make it awesome if you ask me. First up, get a regular old pot (mine was terra cotta) and paint it with chalkboard paint. I painted two coats – one going vertical and one going horizontal, just like the bottom instructed.
Once it was completely dry, I used a foam brush to cover the rim in mod podge. While it was still wet, I shook fine gold glitter all over it – don’t hold back – you want it covered!
Then I also coated the ends of some of the branches in mod podge and poured glitter on them too – that extra touch makes a big statement:
Then you’ll “season” your chalkboard, which just means rub chalk all over it and wipe it off. Then you’re ready to write – try sharpening chalk and the dipping the tip in water before you write – it’ll make a big difference!
FYI, I used a foam ball to hold up the stick and then covered it in leaves:
