We contemplated putting up a tree with all the trimming this year, then we remembered how quickly four little hands would tear it down. Instead, I made this perfect little chalkboard Christmas trees, stuck it under the mantel, next to the cookies and it quickly became the perfect family tradition!

How to create a chalkboard Christmas tree

To create this Chalkboard Christmas Tree you need too

First, you will want to give your piece of wood a good first coat of any color that matches your Christmas decor. One that dries freehand an outline of a Christmas tree. Paint the tree with chalkboard paint, and let dry. Use chalk, stickers, felt ornaments to decorate the tree however you like!

I keep a small bowl of chalk and ornaments nearby and we decorate the chalkboard Christmas tree whenever the mood strikes. Afterward, I simply wipe down the tree with a wet towel, leaving us with a blank tree to decorate!
