I’m thankful for… chargers
I wanted to create a Thanksgiving project this week had to be quick and cheap. Ever been there?
Yeah, I thought so.
I also wanted to make something that was a little more versatile. (And, let’s be honest, I have enough – 3 – Thanksgiving banners and pennants.) I think my project fits the bill.
I was inspired by the chalkboard chargers at Tatertots and Jello. I thought, this could be a perfect thankfulness project. And when I came across a set of old plastic chargers at Reusable Usables, I was sold. Because they were plastic (plastic=light), they were less than $1 for all of them. (It’s only $1 per pound.) I had the spray paint on hand, so I just primed them and put a couple coats of chalkboard paint on them.
After drying, they were the perfect addition to the Thanksgiving table. Or really any table, because I can wipe off the chalk and start again.
I also put names on the bottom, so they double as place cards. I know, I have fabulous handwriting. 😉
So, that was my quick and simple thankfulness project. And I hope it reminded my husband that I am thankful for him. (We ate dinner at the table last night and he didn’t even notice until I pointed it out. ;))
(And, as an aside, I also bought a pack of the Chalk Ink markers at Michaels. They are AWESOME. They write like a paint pen but wipe off with water. Which comes in handy if you try to draw a Thanksgiving turkey on a charger that ends up looking like a cross between an elephant and a pheasant. You know, hypothetically.)
