After finding your perfect plate or platter to use (you could always use a frame too), tape off the edges with painters tape. It is important to use several pieces to get the curve of the plate just right. My hubby did this project for me, he has way more patience than I do for these important details, and he is a pro at spray painting.
Spray a couple coats of the chalkboard spray paint and then let it dry for SEVERAL hours.
Remove your tape and place your plate in a little easel or hang on a wall using a plate hanger.
It looks pretty nice in my dining room....I might have to get Adam to make one for me too!
I found this little easel at the Christmas Tree Shop but they sell them everywhere now. I put two pieces of chalk in a little clear bag and attached to the easel with a piece of ribbon. Perfect for gifting now.
