Roofing slate (or a piece of plywood coated with chalkboard paint)
Paper envelopes if making the advent calendar
Hot glue

1. Stamp holly on clothespins with green ink.
2. Add twine hanger to slate shingle.
3. Glue clothespins to edges of slate.

Hang on the wall and enjoy! Remember; don’t use chalk markers on painted chalkboards. You can use this display year-round and the chalkboard is a fun touch anytime of year! Happy crafting!

  1. Hi Lindsay, I brought some Maimeriblu watercolors the other day and No one on You Tube has them. I have been watching you do reviews for years, and I would go and buy them, the Turner’s watercolors are nice. Any way Would you tell me what I have, can not find any one who works with them, they are up their with M. Graham watercolors. All pure colors and can mix the whole line and not get mud. Would you help me, and any-one else if they have these Maimeriblu watercolors. If so I thank you in advance. Thanks.


    1. they end up being 3″x4″, I basically use one of the recipes on the WeR Memory Keepers envelope punch board that used a 6″ square of paper. I bought that 6″x6″ stack years ago and I have so much to use up LOL!


Tell me what YOU think!
