How to Create a Chalkboard Paint Ornament with Hidden Message

Who doesn't love chalkboard paint? For me, I love the reminiscent quality of chalk and how it brings me back to childhood, where my biggest concern was if I would get the coveted job of cleaning the chalkboard erasers by tapping them together outside.  The puff of white dust always looked so magical to me.  I am not a sports person, but I love seeing Lebron James start the game by throwing the chalk dust into the air.   The white dust looks like a signal, a declaration that this is the beginning, that he has arrived and that nothing is going to stop him.

Here is my tutorial on how to create a chalkboard paint ornament that has a hidden message in the interior.

Tape ornament around where you do not want it to be painted.  I cut "fringe" to make it easier to maneuver.

For this ornament I wanted to have a message that could be also seen on the inside.  Write a message backwards with a sharpie so when read through the glass it will be forwards.  It did take me a little bit of thought, but if you mess up you can use nail polish remover to wipe away the sharpie.
Paint over the words you wrote with white primer.  When dry paint over with black chalkboard paint.  I used chalkboard  spray paint.


  1. I love this idea. My friend and I were talking about making ornaments, this would be a great idea for a couple. Thank you!

  2. Super creative!! Thanks for the idea.

  3. This is a wonderful idea! Thanks for sharing. Also, so strange you picked those two song lyrics seeing as they are two of my boyfriend's favorite songs & artists of all time. :)

  4. I love this idea. I got a chalkboard coffee mug as a gift last year, and thought how many other things would be great with this technique. Thank you for this great one!

  5. Love this idea too!! The hidden message gives it a special meaning for years to come. Another fun idea would be to have your kids write something on paper...transfer ...then forever have their darling writing.
