Use chalkboard paint to make a writable plate charger wreath | DazzleWhileFrazzled.comThere’s nothing I like more than taking Item A and transforming it into Item B. That’s how I felt about a metal plate charger, inherited from a relative’s house sale, that spent much of its new life sitting in our garage gathering dust.

Riffle through your kids stash of crayons, uncapped markers and bits of sidewalk chalk in order to write a fun little message on the chalkboard plate charge.

Glue a wall hook onto the back of the plate charger. Once dry, attach a ribbon through the hook to hang on the door or include as part of a gallery wall display.
