Cold Weather Meals – Comfort Foods Satisfy + HM #172

It has been cold here this week, so I am so thankful to have Cold Weather Meals as the theme for our roundup. My mouth is watering, and I cannot  wait to give these scrumptious recipes a try. And, let  me just say, first-hand experience says that the Pasta with Pumpkin and Sausage is fantastic! Bon Appetit…

We are thrilled that you came by to link up today! Here are a few rules that hosts and co-hosts of the Home Matters Party follow, and we ask that you follow them, as well.

  1. Please link up no more than THREE posts each week–try to make sure that they are new links that you have not shared here previously. (Exception: Holiday/Seasonal specific posts may be shared once per year.)
  1. Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.
  1. Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.
  1. We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.
  1. We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways–unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.
  1. On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)

With your help, we can continue to grow the Home Matters Party! Thank you!

Chalkboard Art Tips And Cozy Winter Nights

Do you love chalkboard art? Get the chalkboard art tips you need to make beautiful chalkboards for your home – the easy way! Plus get a free design perfect for those cozy winter nights and drinking hot cocoa. Snuggle up with some fun and fabulous winter decor. #ad #ChalkboardArt #Winter

Some of the products in this post were provided by Oriental Trading Company.

 

Chalkboard Art Tips And Cozy Winter Nights

When the weather outside is cold, it is the perfect time to snuggle up and get cozy. We love to use our White Winter Ceramic Mugs that look like cable knit sweaters and enjoy some hot cocoa. We snuggle up in the den and turn on one of our favorite shows or movie. The den is all decked out in Buffalo Plaid winter decor.

One of the items I picked up from Oriental Trading was this super cute Buffalo Plaid Chalkboard. I absolutely LOVE chalk art (check out my Sidewalk Chalk Art). So, I couldn’t resist this board and creating a fun design. There are a few tips and tricks I want to share with you on how you can make your own chalk art design and transfer it easily to your own chalkboard. You won’t believe how easy it is!

I wanted to celebrate cozy winter nights with a chalkboard design that featured the hot cocoa we enjoy. So, I drew a steaming mug to compliment the saying, “Warm Mugs of Hot Cocoa Served All Winter Long.” I am thrilled with how it turned out.

Get the Chalkboard Art Tips

Create your design

  • Create your design. Use fancy fonts, choose or draw graphics.
  • Put them all together how you want them in a word document, photo program, or whatever you like to use.
  • Make your design the size you need for your chalkboard.
  • Print a black and white copy of your design.

Transfer your design to the Chalkboard

  • Use the side of a piece of chalk to chalk the back side of your design paper. Be sure to cover every bit of your design area.
  • Place the chalked side of paper against your chalkboard and lightly tape it into place. This just keeps the pattern still and in the proper position.
  • Trace over your design to transfer it to the chalkboard.
  • Remove the tape and pattern.
  • Use Chalk Markers to draw your design onto the chalkboard. Follow your pattern, it is easy peasy!
  • Once finished, let your chalk marker DRY thoroughly.
  • After the chalk marker is completely dry, you can dust off the remaining chalk dust and have a perfect chalkboard decor.
