chalk board platters

Sorry it's been a long time! I have been lacking in the creative department... and it shows! Anyways, here's the latest project. Sorry no step by step guide, but it's really easy to do!

I bought 3 "silver" platters at the Dollar Tree (any shape you'd like), a can of chalkboard paint, and I had a big roll of red ribbon at home already.

I sprayed the platters with 2 coats of the chalkboard paint. Tied bows with the big red ribbon (making sure to have long "tails" on the bow). Then I hot glued one bow to the back of each platter. Hung up and placed a little note on them!

This says "Welcome Home Daddy" since the husband will be home tonight... I doubt he'll even notice these, but hey I love them!!!
