Easy Chunky Chalkboard Letters!
Apr 14, 2014
If you can write capital letters in chalk, you can definitely write chunky letters!
My bonus sister and I spent Saturday at Junk Bonanza. I'd consider it a tradition since we've been going for three years now.
Junk Bonanza lives up to its name - a bevy of junk awaits collectors, crafters and antiquers. Every year there are plenty of vendors selling chalkboard-paint covered stuff. I thought that a short chalk lettering tutorial would be timely :-).
Break a stick of chalk so that one end is less than 1 inch long.
We'll be using the full length of the chalk to write, not the tip.
Hold the chalk sideways. Use capital letters. Write like you would normally write! Don't worry if the letters aren't exactly the same size. We'll equalize everything in the next step.
Using the edges of the letters as a guide, use the end of the chalk (not the length!) to write around each letter. If any letters seem too small, simply make the outline a little lower/higher. See how my N and K were a bit too small? I just drew the outline a little lower to compensate.
Fill in any empty spaces (in my case, the bottoms of N and K).
See? Super easy!
