Chalkboard flags • A Subtle Revelry

Chalkboard flags

I have a fun design secret for you today… Did you know you can make chalkboard paint in any color you would like? Simply add tile grout to your favorites- make a bold red for Christmas, or perhaps the perfect shade of plum to match today’s celebratory mood! Any color you can dream of- they are fun to write on and will look fabulous popping out at your next event.
