DIY Chalkboard

Hi there!  We're so glad you stopped by!  
I wanted to share something I made, and possibly give you a gift idea for any upcoming bridal showers, engagement parties, or any other miscellaneous events that people may be counting down to (babies, birthdays, vacations, Holidays, Etc...) 
My cousin, Matt, is engaged to one of the most brilliant women I know.  She is sweet, funny, extremely hard-working, and I knew she'd be family the moment I met her.  I didn't want to get them a bottle of wine and a card for their engagement party.  I wanted to make something special for them. 
 
Here is the countdown chalkboard I made! 
What do you think? 
 
I took step-by-step photos as I was making it, but the photos have since become inaccessible.  I'm sorry! 
 
I bought the chalkboard at a local craft store, as well as the large burlap flower.  I used my cricut machine to cut out the letters.  Instead of buying the expensive cricut vinyl, I buy contact paper at the dollar store.  After they are married, they can easily peel the "I DO" off of the chalkboard and use it for other events. 
The pink frame is actually a small chalkboard that I glued to the larger chalkboard.  
I hope this has given you some inspiration for future gift giving!  Thanks for stopping by! :)
