If you are anything like me, you either forget your shopping list or your reusable grocery bags almost every trip to the store. This project can help solve this problem by combining your list AND your grocery tote into one!
Inspired by bags I saw on Pinterest, I painted a circle onto our Canvas Large Tote with DecoArt Americana Chalkboard Paint. It may take multiple layers to get full coverage. In order to keep the letters straight, I stuck a piece of Stencil Décor Tape across the bag where I wanted the bottom of the letters to line up. I then dabbed DecoArt Extreme Sheen Metallic in 24K Gold with the medium size Paint Pouncer over our Stencil 103, letting the paint dry before stenciling the next letter. Since the letters were more traditional, I wanted to add a touch of whimsy, so I free handed a line under the phrase.
You can write your shopping list on your bag with chalk and wipe with a damp cloth to remove! There are a ton of options for this project. I think it would be adorable to paint a colorful design and topcoat it with our Clear Chalkboard coating. The possibilities are endless! We would love to see your version of this project, be sure to share on our Facebook or the Clubhouse!
