I have created 2 projects here to show you both ways.

The first project is a made to look like a little “sandwich board”.

Using DecoArt® Americana® Indian Turquoise acrylic paint with Americana® Clear Chalkboard paint over the top of it. When you apply the Clear Chalkboard coating over any acrylic paint it simply turns the surface into chalkboard. Great product!

Once all the paints were thoroughly dry, I adhered washi tape around the outside edges of the chalkboard area. Use a Marvy/Uchida® Bistro Chalk Marker to write any saying.

Adhere decorative paper to the raw wood leaving a small frame of raw wood showing. Mount your photos onto a matching cardstock paper and adhere it to the decorative paper. Adding a few “X’s” and “O’s” makes a finishing touch of color and meaning to the photos. We love our pets!
