On one of my recent trips to Target, I spotted some fabulous Chalkboard Wrapping Paper. I had already bought so much paper at that point (a lot of pretty metallics), but I decided that I could use it for something else! 


  • Chalkboard Wrapping Paper
  • Copper Pipe or Dowel
  • Bakers Twine
  • Chalk
  • Scissors


Simply unravel your paper and measure how long you want you banner to be. Cut your paper. Place your copper pipe or dowel at the top and roll just a small portion of your paper. Tape in place (optional). Tie the twine to either end of your pipe and hang. If the paper is rolling up too high, place the cardboard roll (that comes with the paper) on the bottom to weigh it down. Then enjoy! *Keep in mind it wrinkles very easily, since it is just paper*

I love how simple it was to make and I had a lot of fun creating a little design with my chalk. I simply wrote “God Jul” and a little picture inspired by some Scandinavian art (I’m no artist…I know!). This will be a lot of fun for our kids as well after the holidays!
