I recently saw in one of my magazines a chalkboard rooster and fell in love with it. I wasn’t willing to pay the price they were asking so, I decided to make my own.
I made a copy of the picture and went to Staples to enlarge it to the size I wanted. I cut the pattern out and traced it on some pine wood that I had on hand.
I used my skil saw to cut them out.
And somewhere along the way I forgot to take pictures of the rest of the project. But I’ll show you what he looks like.
I painted everything black and then used chalkboard paint on the front and back just in case I wanted to flip him around. I wanted to give him some height so I drilled a hole in the bottom of the rooster and in the base and used a wooden dowel rod.
I added a pretty red bow and a sweet message for all to see.
And for now I have him sitting in my kitchen on the countertop by the coffee pot.
I think he turned out right cute!
