What you will need For Dollar Tree Chalkboard :
DOLLAR TREE PRODUCTS:
- Two floral bushes
- 5 x 7-inch picture frame
- Three floral wires
Step 1: Let’s start with the braided wire!
First, unravel three floral wires.
Take a floral tie, gather the wires, and bound them together.
Braid together by taking one of the outer wires and crossing it over with the center wire. Repeat on the opposite side.
This could also be done on the ground to help hold the braid together if you are not familiar with doing a braid by hand.

Once you have finished the braid, secure it by taking one end of a wire and wrapping it around the other two wires.
Adjust the braid to make it symmetrical all the way through. This wire is very forgiving so do not be afraid to loosen, pull, or widen where it is needed.
Measure a ring around the chalkboard and trim to the desired length.
Again, secure the ends by taking one end of a wire and wrapping it around the other two wires.
Bring the two ends together then fold and twist to join them. Apply some glue where they combine to keep in place.
Step 2: Let’s decorate!
Trim the flowers and leaves from bushes using wire cutters.
To attach flowers and leaves, apply some glue to the stem and slide it between a groove. Be careful! The glue will be hot! Apply more glue onto the back of the wire and flower/leaf to hold in place.

Hide where the wires connect by apply flowers and leaves.
Apply as many leaves and flowers as you like!
Step 3: Now for the chalkboard!
Remove easel back from the photo frame and glue it onto the backside of the chalkboard.
Remove folding easel.
Using a pencil, draft out what you would like on the chalkboard.
Made a mistake? Easy fix! Simply just erase and try again.
Take the chalkboard marker and trace your penciled letters. Allow the letters to dry completely.
Step 4: Attach Sign onto the Braided Floral Ring
Take the leftover wire and glue it to the back of the chalkboard.
Allow the glue to dry completely then repeat on the opposite side.
I have circled the areas where I glued the board and wires together. Please refer to the image below.
Attach the sign to the flower wreath by taking one corner and looping it in and over to create a ribbon hook. Repeat on all corners.
