Chalk Board Flag Banners

Have you seen chalk board flags?
I came across these at Hobby Lobby in a pack of 12 and under 6 dollars.
They come with the string for hanging and a piece of chalk.



I tried a little banner for my studio with the word CREATE.
First I wrote in the letters block style with chalk.
Then I painted right over the chalk with white paint.
Hey, chalk paint!! LOL

Lastly to accent the letters, I painted my cottage roses
in and around the letters with rose buds, vines and leaves.




Hung in my studio in front of the window.


I can think of many ways to use the chalk board flags banners.
Back them with fabric,
use separately and write a small word.
Turn on the side and form a little flag by adding a stem.

Reminder notes with a decorative clothes pin.

These 6 are permanent since I painted them, 
but since they erase easy, you could use them over and over for many banner signs.
I still have 6 left for another word banner or several flags.


As a side note~~

Today I started painting my kitchen cabinets.

I'll have updates soon.

Think of me as I am swinging a paint brush~~

It's 102 degrees here today.

Happy Summer!!
~~till next time, Southern DayDreams~~

How cute is that! You are full of so many creative ideas. We won't talk about how that would look if I painted them! 102 degrees- yikes! We're having such a cool summer and you are boiling down south! Good time to be indoors and painting.

Hi Celestina Marie,

How fabulous - love your Create banner in your workroom. Such a lovely idea and will have to look out for them. Thanks for the inspiration. Best of luck with the kitchen cabinets and look forward to seeing them finished. You would need to have a quick swim in the pool in that heat., 102 degrees - wow!
Happy week dear friend

lynn said...

Createology said...

Only you could take a simple plain piece of chalkboard pennant and make it beautiful and graceful. I love your CREATE banner. Looking forward to seeing your kitchen cupboard project. Stay well hydrated in this scorching heat dear...

Ana said...

Oh Celestina,
The chalkboard banner is a super cute idea, and with your beautiful rose touches it is even more cute. I love it.

I'm so excited because we finally have a Hobby Lobby close by. Well it's about an hour away but it is definitely worth the drive :-) Hopefully this means it is getting closer to where I live. Gotta love the Hobby Lobby :-) Wishing you a lovely evening.

Hugs and Kisses,
❤️Ana

Your banner is so sweet. Can't wait to see your kitchen cabinets. I want to paint mine, but have been putting it off. I'm just a little nervous about taking on such a big job.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, this is so pretty, Celestina. It must look nice in your creative space. I love Hobby Lobby, and go there often. You know, Jess and Nel love this chalkboard stuff, and Nel just found canisters with chalkboard. You did a great job painting the sweet pink roses on them.

love,
~Sheri

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

First of all the banners are so pretty. And girl, YOU can swing a paintbrush for sure with those beautiful roses. LOVE! And I cannot wait to see your kitchen cabinets. Let me just say... IF... I ever get brave enough to paint my kitchen cabinets... I would not be able to contain myself through an entire blog post and casually mention it at the end... You WERE struggling weren't you?? Haha... that sounds so exciting. I sit here patiently waiting for details and updates... Seriously, I hope it all goes well, I know it will be beautiful. :)

I know your cabinet makeover will be amazing!!

Your banner is just beautiful, Celestina! Of course you know how much I love your painted roses, what a great idea to add them to your "create"!!! The banners would be so fun at parties, so many uses. It is perfect in your studio. Can't wait to see your painted cabinets!

Marcia Pilar said...

I never get tired of banners, Celeste. I think they are so cheerful and pretty. Did you notice the mini one I have behind my art chair? :) My daughter introduced me to chalkboard pens and markers a few weeks ago, and I am hooked. I know you'd love them. So much easier to use than chalk and they come in various colors.
Now, I am hoping you'll share those cabinets with us, won't you? I'm sure they'll turn out gorgeous.
Have a lovely weekend, friend.
xoxo's
