chalk (this is from a package of 3 boxes from the dollar store)
Optional: small artists brush to touch up edges, chalk marker (more on this below).
Use the foam brush to paint the centers of the napkin rings.
Leave the edge unpainted with as straight a line as you can, but don’t sweat it – imperfection is perfectly fine (but of course you know it’s also fine everywhere here on AOC!)
Set on the unpainted edge to dry.
Optional: when dry, touch up edges with a small artist brush, if you want.
Condition painted areas with chalk after rings are completely dry (at least 24 hrs).
Rub the side of the chalk over all painted surfaces
Buff surface lightly with a rag, leaving a film of chalk behind.
TIP: To write on the rings, here is my chalkboard decor tip: Chalk Markers.You get the look of chalk without the dust or smearing, yet the lettering easily comes off with a damp cloth when you want to change.This is purely optional, as regular chalk will work fine, although it will more easily rub off.
