This little piggy was my first project after a major thrifting haul. He was pretty scratched up, but for 49¢ I thought he was cute enough to take home. And with just a bit of chalkboard paint and imagination, this porker now has a new home atop my stove.

With the Creighton Alumni party coming up, I knew I was going to be baking and displaying an array of goodies this weekend. I decided to add a festive touch to the normal serving platters by making chalkboard signs.

All that was left was to buy the base colors and chalkboard paint. It was all SO easy - here are my steps…
A couple of things to note:
I also ended up threading a piece of ribbon through the hole on the top to complete the “ornament” look and used tiny wooden clothes pins (purchased for a different project) to hold the signs upright as displays (more photos to follow).
This was a fun project that I’m sure will get repeated use throughout the season!
