DIY CHALKBOARD PHOTO PROPS

A DIY! At last! These chalkboard speech bubble photo props were so simple to make and were a hit at the surprise party last week. People loved coming up with what they wanted to write as a message for my mom or just for fun. 

You'll need:
Poster board
Chalkboard vinyl
Dowel rods
Paint
Glue
Scissors

With some poster board, cut out the shape you would like. I did speech bubbles, but I've done other shapes (hearts, shamrocks, pumpkins, hexagons) before! 
 Take some chalkboard vinyl and cut it to the size of your shape.
 Peel the backing off the vinyl and stick it on the poster board, then trim off the excess.
 If you would like, you can paint your dowel rod to make it a bit more colorful.
Attach the rod to the back and add an extra piece of poster board to support the back. And you're done!
Enjoy!
