I came across the cutest Chalkboard sign at Hobby Lobby and I knew I’d find some way to craft with it! I grabbed my Wondrous Floral transfer from ReDesign with Prima transfer and had some fun!
Supplies I Used
- Chalkboard Sign of your choice. I used a Hobby Lobby sign I purchased awhile ago when it was on sale.
- ReDesign with Prima transfer of your choice. I used Wondrous Floral.

Let’s Start with a clean chalkboard!
Before painting or up cycling your projects, make sure to start with a clean surface!
I use Dixie Belle’s White Lightning.

Adding the transfer to the chalkboard
For this project, I wanted my transfer to cover about 3/4 of the Chalkboard.
I decided to cover the bottom area and overlap over the frame too with a few flowers from the Wondrous Floral transfer.
Once I cut around the flowers that I wanted to use and decided on placement, I removed the backing of the transfers.
Be careful not to touch the sticky backside with your fingers, carefully place the design where you want on your project.
Start pressing the transfer on your project with your transfer stick and ensure there are no bubbles.

I almost forgot!
To seal my chalkboard sign, I did apply a couple of coats of Dixie Belle’s Sealer in Flat after I applied my transfer over the chalkboard area and around the frame.
Adding “welcome” to my chalkboard Sign
I wanted to add “Welcome” to my sign and I decided to make up my own stencil and use Dixie Belle’s Cotton.
It worked great, BUT the Hobby Lobby stencil is a pretty slick surface and the dried paint rubs off pretty easy.
Which makes it great to change it up later, whenever I want!
Glass half full!
