Chalkboards are all the rage in the design world lately, and they’re also an easy way to add a bit of unexpected character to your wedding day! Whether you’re going for a casual, country, or even chic look,
check out our ideas on how you can incorporate this fun element into
your event.

When we stumbled upon this amazing blackboard oilcloth, we knew we had
to somehow use it in one of our do-it-yourself projects. It’s a dream to
write on, and the chalk easily washes off with a damp cloth, so the
oilcloth can be used over and over again. We cut ours to fit a large
white frame and wrote guests’ seat assignments on it to create a
modern-looking seating chart.

Cut the oilcloth to make a dramatic place mat for each table setting; write the guest’s name across the top in lieu of a place card.

We cut tags from cardstock and sprayed them with chalkboard spray paint to create super-easy place cards.

Votive holders or small cups can also get the spray-paint treatment; fill them with bright flowers for a glamorous favor, and write guests’
names on the front for added personalization.

When black is matte, it looks sophisticated and soft – and is a fabulous compliment to a floral arrangement. We spray painted a vase
with chalkboard paint, wrote the table number on the front, and filled
with pretty pale tulips. Volia! An inexpensive centerpiece that still
looks dramatic.

We hung a page from this blackboard album around an old wooden box, wrote the table number on the front, and then filled it with floppy
flowers. The result? A casual, rustic centerpiece that’s truly unique.
