Chalkboard Craze

Chalkboards aren’t just for school anymore!  Chalkboards are a huge trend in home and party decor.  Chalkboards are fun, timeless, and versatile.  We are so glad it is a trend right now because it is super cute and fun.  It is so easy to customize your home decor, treat packaging and party decorations with the use of chalk.  When you get sick of the design you can just erase and start fresh!

This fall Fancy Flours even has an exclusive chalkboard style wafer paper set designed by the style guru Matthew Mead.  Set includes 11 different Halloween themed images.  We used the following cutters to create these cookies:

Rectangle Cutter 5″ x 3.25″
- Round Cutter 2.75″
- Square Cutter 3″

This wafer paper set is featured in the new book, Matthew Mead’s Halloween Spooktacular.  From themed parties to the easiest cookie decorating, this book will show you simple ways to transform ordinary objects into Halloween treats and surprises.  Unfortunately we have sold out of the book for the season, but be sure to look for it on the shelves in your local grocery store.

Below are some more fun chalkboard items from Fancy Flours to spruce up your home decor!
