Make It : Chalkboard Labels and Placecards

Posted by

Most of our holiday meals are served buffet style and since we all bring dishes to share, it's nice to have some labels so guests know what is what.

I grabbed some assorted wooden craft pieces which you can find at any craft store to make some quick chalkboard labels and place cards. Wood scraps work too! Or maybe your kids have some blocks to spare? You can even use wooden plant markers (above right) for cheese labels. (Just make sure to leave enough unpainted area on the sticks so that when you stick it in cheese, the painted area will be about one inch away.) I used our chalkboard paint which comes in four colors--I love the black and grey.

Happy Thanksgiving!
