A Fast and Fabulous DIY {Chalk Painted Chargers}

Good Morning All! I have been busy decorating my home for Fall and most of you got a glimpse of a little Halloween Decor on Tuesday.
Today I am here to show you a quick and easy DIY for your dining or kitchen table settings.

While decorating for Halloween, I decided I wanted something a little different to punch up my dining room table. I had some great ideas for the centerpiece, but didn't quite know how to give it a pop around the plates. Last year I decorated my Thanksgiving table and used some gold chargers under my china plates. That gave me a fabulous idea. I wanted to add some more black to my Halloween table setting and found this amazing stuff at Home Depot.

I found some silver chargers at Michael's on sale 2 for $3.00!! I gave them a good spray with the Chalk Spray Paint. I waited an hour and then came back for a second quick spray.

I let them dry over night and started back the next morning rubbing chalk all over them in order for them to be ready for use. (I just followed the directions on the back of the can.)

I wiped off the chalk with a wet rag and then started writing some Halloween words at the top. I then
 placed them under my china in the dining room. You can see a couple of sneak peeks below!

Aren't they adorable!? You could use these for any party or holiday dinner. I might even use these this Thanksgiving and write each person's name on them instead of a place card holder. This was a simple and quick project that really adds that little sumthin sumthin to our Halloween tablescape. 

Are you into chalk paint!? I just might have to rummage up a few more projects, just so I can use this fabulous paint again!

Come on back tomorrow for the full Halloween Tablescape reveal!

  1. Love the idea of writing a person's name on the charger in place of a placecard-and it saves space on the table too. The possibilities are endless.

    1. Thanks Karen! I love making items that can be used many times throughout the year!

  2. What a perfect idea for Halloween - I'm sure you'll find many more uses for them as well. Can't wait to see the full Halloween post.

  3. I love this idea and you could make your own chalkboard paint next time in any color to match your season or event!!!

  4. This is so clever! I love the versatility and how they could double as place cards. NICE! Mind if I pin?

  5. I have used the paint on chalkboard paint, but didn't know it came in a spray can. I am a spray can girl. These chargers are so adorable, that I am just going to have to make them. Halloween is my favorite holiday. I just received Halloween placemats I had ordered from Etsy. These chargers would look great with them.

    1. Yeah! So glad you are going to try them. So easy I tell ya!

  6. I LOVE the idea of these as chargers. Way to go!
