Chalk Board Tablecloth and Chalk Ink Markers

What do you get when you take one chalkboard tablecloth and some Chalk Ink Markers?

A really cool way to decorate your craft table for Autumn!

We often work on arts and crafts projects together at this little table. My young artist claims the larger half.

Welcome Fall!

(I bought our chalkboard tablecloth from FreckledSage, and Michael’s craft stores sell Chalk Ink markers.)

  1. Gosh! Amazing…
    Happy Fall!

  2. wow! If I ever saw a chalk bpoard table cloth i’d buy it! I never even heard of such a thing… off to google for one now!!!

  3. What a great idea! But you are too late, Scarlett! My kids are grown and grandchildren are into their ipods and ipads. You are a great resource for
    other moms out there and any mother with young children would have many ideas just by reading your blog. I would have loved to have had this resource when the kids were home.

  4. Hi Scarlett .. that’s a brilliant idea – you are such a clever artist – what a wonderful way to express Autumn .. gorgeous .. cheers Hilary

    Wow! That is gorgeous! Now do you cover it with something, or does chalk-ink not smear like chalk? This is very cool!

  6. How darned sweet is this! I have some of the fabric and some markers – just waiting for some inspiration. Well off to my daughter who regularly does art with the little ones….

    @Susan –Thanks, Susan!! Nope, you don’t need a cover, they don’t smear and there’s no dust at all. The designs can be removed with a wet-wipe and you’re ready to draw again! So fun! Thanks again for stopping by!

  8. Oh my goodness..pure joy…I am in love with this idea! I must see if I can find one of these tablecloths..Ooodles of thanks for sharing..your artwork is amazing! xoxox.

    @Monica –Thank you!! Happy Fall to you as well! Have a wonderful week!

    @Ruth –Isn’t it fun? The vendor that I linked at the bottom sells tablecloths already made, but it you can sew then you can make one much cheaper buying the fabric yourself. Thanks so much!

    @dee –Thanks, Dee! Yes, maybe a little late for your kiddos but I bet if you got your hands on some of these markers you’d have a blast! You can layer and blend for a painterly effect and the colors really pop on the black cloth! This is how they make those amazing chalk signs in whole foods, if you’ve ever seen them. Thanks so much for coming over and I’ll see you tomorrow!

    @Hilary –Hi there, hope you are well and having a good Sunday! Glad you liked the chalk drawing! It’s the most fun item we’ve found in a while!

    @Sandi –That’s great, glad you have the stuff already! And glad this inspired you! It was really fun and it’s so easy to clear off with a wet wipe and create something new….definitely have to use the markers again for Christmas time! Thanks again!

    @koralee –So glad you liked it! This was one of those things where I was asking myself, “Why haven’t I done this before?” It was really fun! Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for visiting. 🙂

  11. Your art is vibrant and beautiful! I just bought chalk board paint, I have an idea…I’ll share later ;D
    How fun; I have a huge chalk board in my kitchen. Hubby built it a few years ago, when we saw it in the Pottery Barn catalog. What a wonderful idea; thank you for sharing! I wondered how they made those bright colors…. 😀

  12. Wow! How impressive! You are really good with those markers!!

  13. Great idea! What a beautiful design. I love that you can wipe it off with a wet-wipe and create a new design. That’s fantastic! ~Sophia

  14. I am totally getting some of those! I love that idea and they really don’t smear? Wow. Looks adorable.

    I am amazed! Scarlett, you are so creative. I would love to come over and soak in all the lovely ideas you have.

    By the way . . . it was great to see Sveva this morning. We miss all of your wonderful family!

    @Ella –Cool! Can’t wait to see your idea! I also have a chalkboard…it’s in my entry way. The original oil painting got ruined in a move so I just turned it into a chalkboard! Your huge one your hubby made sounds awesome!

    @Anna –Thanks for stopping by, I corrected the link in the article to go to your web site, didn’t know you had one! Have a great week!

    @just4crafters –Yep, isn’t that cool? This way we can enjoy it for a little while without kids rubbing it off! 🙂

    @Vicki –They really don’t. I bought a set of primary colors and white first, to see if they really worked…and they worked so well I already went out and got the “Earthy” set, too, with autumn colors. Warning though, they make you want to turn every surface into a chalkboard! 🙂

    @Sandra –Hi there! Long time, no see! She enjoyed being there and seeing everyone. Thanks so much for commenting, hope you all are doing well!
