Easy DIY Fall Decor with Chalkola Chalk Markers + Chalkola Marker Set #Giveaway


Thanks to Chalkola for providing me with product for this post. All thoughts are my own.

One of my favorite things about fall is fall decorating. I love all of the beautiful decor that I see in craft and home good stores, but they often come with hefty price tags. Even when some items are 40 - 50% off their regular price, two or three items can add up fast at the cash register. I've found that it's so inexpensive and easy to make my own decorative pieces for my home, especially by using chalk markers.


I fell in love with chalk markers a while back, after putting up a chalkboard calendar in our family kitchen. It's so easy to decorate it with little doodles, as well as keep our family's info up to date for all to see. Chalk markers are so much easier to write or draw with than traditional chalk, and if you haven't noticed, chalkboard decor is super trendy!


Not all chalk markers are created equal. I have spent a lot of money on large packs of chalk markers in the past, and they have been difficult to use or have performed quite poorly, with some even drying out/up far too quickly.

Chalkola gives its customers premium liquid chalk pens/markers that are perfect for at home use, use in classrooms, on craft projects, etc. They're also perfect for businesses, and for creating boards for special events.

I had the chance to try out Chalkola markers for myself and thought it would be fun to create a fall decor piece for my home. Now, keep in mind- I'm not an artist, and lettering just isn't my thing, but I was able to create a cute, fun project with a few simple items from my local craft store and a pack of Chalkola markers.

DIY Harvest Home Hanging Chalkboard


For this project, I used:

1 Burlap Wrapped Canvas
1 Chalkboard (Chipboard)
Chalkola Markers
Festive Ribbon
*Hot Glue


Start with the chalkboard design first!

Before I did anything, I focused on adding my design to the chalkboard. This was a $4.00 chipboard coated in chalkboard paint, purchased at Hobby Lobby. 
I chose the chalk markers I wanted to use for my design, and set those out for my project.

To prep the markers for use, I simply followed the directions on the box of chalk markers.
I shook each chalk marker in an upright position for about 30 seconds (with the cap on), and then removed the cap, and pressed down on the marker (on a paper towel) until the liquid chalk began to flow.

The markers were incredibly easy to use, and they kept a good flow the whole time I was using them. I didn't have to keep going back and pressing down on the markers or shake them again to get the chalk ink to come out.


I realized later that I should have used a ruler to keep my writing straight, but, oh, well!
I loved how easy it was to both write and draw with the Chalkola markers. The best part is, I can use this board over and over again if I simply wipe away what I drew or wrote for this design with a damp cloth. I will probably make a new sign for Halloween in a few weeks.



I attached the chalkboard to the burlap wrapped canvas with hot glue, and then added decorative ribbon (also with hot glue) to hang the canvas. You could add the ribbon directly to the chalkboard and hang it that way, too. I liked the mixed media look of the burlap canvas behind the chalkboard to give it another dimension.

If you're looking for fun and easy ways to decorate, or if you love to make homemade crafts or gifts, you will definitely want to have Chalkola chalk markers on hand. I love the colors- they're very bold, which is awesome! Most all of the chalk markers that I have had in the past have wound up looking very neon, which was disappointing! These colors are very true to what you see on their colored caps.

The markers are great for any kind of Non-Porous Surface (Like Chalkboard, Windows, Labels, Jars, and Paper etc.). The Pens are safe for kids, non-toxic, water-based - Wet wipe and can be erased easily using a wet cloth.
