Chalkboard Portraits

How cute are kids button noses and tiny chins? I wanted to mark these memories so before Tara started school i took a photo of both the children side on. Best way to do this is while they are watching T.V!
I printed the photos on the printer in an A4 size and then carefully cut around the outline of the child.
Using the cut out printed photo of the child i then used blue tak to secure the picture to the wooden board that backs an A4 sized photo frame. I had painted this with white paint (i used ceiling white as that's all we had-kids paint wasn't thick enough to get a bright white)
After the printed photo was secure i outlined the photo carefully using a thin black permanent texta.
I used chalkboard paint to then simply paint the inside of the permanent marker outline.
Waited 24 hours to dry and placed them back in the frames. We hung them at our entrance and also added gold hooks under them to create a space that the children could keep their school bag on and gumboots underneath.
