Holiday Entertaining — Make Chalkboard Chargers

28 Oct
 It’s Thursday and it’s time for the last post in the Mrs. Bliss Holiday Workshop

I have really enjoyed this being a part of this series of Holiday Tips and Ideas!! There have been so many wonderful ideas for making our lives easier during this upcoming Holiday Season !! The complete links are at the bottom of the post. 
Today I’d love to share a super simple and fun Entertaining idea that can be used all year round! 
Chalkboard Chargers
I found some cheap, plastic chargers at my local discount store for $1 each. 
1. This is the most important step. If you are using plastic chargers, spray them first with Primer made for Plastic!! I made the mistake the first time of using regular primer. That does not work with plastic! If you use primer for plastic — your chalkboard paint will stick.
2. Spray your chargers with Chalkboard Spray Paint. You can find it at your local hardware store – like Home Depot.

3. Another must have — Chalkboard Pens!!! How did I not know about these before?? They are incredible!!! I big puffy heart them.  And they come in all sorts of wonderful colors!! I bought mine at Micheal’s — use a coupon from their website. And they also sell them through Amazon.

Once you get the chargers painted you can use them for all sorts of events during the year.
 *Thanksgiving*
*Christmas*
*New Years*
*Halloween*

Some other ideas: 
Birthdays
Valentines
Fourth of July

Another chalkboard paint idea — 
Make an Ornament Place Card
Paint a rectangle on an ornament with chalkboard paint. 
These can be used over and over!
