Hand painted Owl Chalk Box

This is my newest little pet project. I found this cute owl clipart for inspiration. I wrapped a chalk box in canvas and painted it black, then I painted the cute little owl on the front.

I googled "painted box" images for inspiration and found this great website Boxed art project
You may want to check it out to see what they are doing in Canterbury City. What a fun project!

I will definitely be painting more chalk boxes.

This reminds me of another project that I did a while back. I offered step by step instructions on my old blog "Art Spectrum". I may reintroduce it on my new blog, just for fun!

Have a great day!

Ahhh these are adorable. You should put those on Etsy. The chalkboard party seemed to have gone really well. I hated to miss it. Oh heck no I didn't. I was on vacation, but I did miss the computer.

I do love this for sure. I could put crayons in there for my little one. Where did you get the box?

Thank you for your comments.
This is made from a plain old crayola chalk box.
I will be making some more:)
