Chalkboard projects are so popular right now and chalkboard spray paint is so easy to use.  You will fall in love! I’m sure you will be “chalkboarding” things around your house like crazy!

This snowman cutout is a great decoration for the winter months.  I added ribbon and hung it on my front door.  My friends and family will laugh when they see the message in chalk because I hate snow and would never seriously wish for any.  Luckily, I live in Phoenix so there is no chance of snow this winter! 🙂

Following the directions on your can, spray a thin layer of paint over the top and sides of the snowman.  Wait for one hour and repeat.
