From crafters to brides-to-be to home design enthusiasts it seems chalk is inspiring DIY projects across the board (pun totally intended). The Paper Source Design Team grabbed a few everyday items and went to town with our own chalkboard products, creating a dozen easy-to-execute ideas with simple chalk and chalkboard accents.
Around the house you can adhere removable, repositionable Chalkboard Wallies to a kitchen wall or back entryway for notes, reminders, or even a running grocery list! Or, try using chalkboard paint on a porous surface. Secure a repurposed frame, window, or shutter to create a DIY memo board with chalkboard paint.
Last week, RealSimple.com listed Chalkboard Wallies as the #1 Item to Simplify Your Life. Our Summer Party Ideas post shows you how to use these must-haves as labels, just like the jars featured above.

I had friends over for dinner the other night and needed a quick and easy centerpiece. To update regular glass vases, I looked to my stash of wrapping paper. Inspired by Fabra’s idea of covering milk cartons with paper to make unique vases, I thought wrapping my vases in a colorful print could add interest to my table.
I took two of our India prints and wrapped the vases just like you would wrap a box using removable double-stick tape. For the larger vase, I added a band of satin ribbon to the top of the paper and left a portion of the glass vase exposed. It took less than 10 minutes to get everything together and instantly brightened up the table. The flowers have since been tossed, but the paper held up and the vases are waiting to be filled again with new blooms.
