I was looking around for something “tall” to set on my buffet. I wanted something a little shorter than my lamp but taller than the pitcher (which I may or may not add holiday greenery to later, if I feel like it). I remembered the easel that came with my DaySpring message board, which I didn’t need since I hung the board on the wall.
But what to put on the easel? Hmmm.
In one of those moments where I wanted something NOW, I grabbed one of my inexpensive holiday chargers (which might actually be some sort of plastic or lightweight metal) and set it in the easel.
Then I wished I had a vinyl cling with a holiday word on it, that would have been ideal. Since I do not have one at the moment, I remembered my chalkboard pens and wondered if it would work in the meantime? Hmmm. And so it did! And when I want to add a new message, it wipes right off too.
It would be really cool to get a vinyl cling (check out The Simple Stencil) but the pen is a quick and easy option if you are in a hurry! This project reminded me of the chalkboard chargers, without using any chalkboard paint.
I do LOVE these chalk pens! I’m not sure if they work on everything (or wipe off of everything!), but it worked great on the charger. Had it not worked, the charger was so inexpensive I wouldn’t have cried.
Total cost: Free (if you already have a chalk pen and a plate)!!!!
Total stress: None.
