I’ve been drawing laurels on things since the dawn of time. Or since college. Whatever.

what to draw on a chalkboard

When I realized my chalkboard handwriting looked nothing like Dana Tanamachi’s– laurels to the rescue.

I made a fun little video last year with my awkward on-camera self and thought it would be worth sharing again because especially at Christmas there are so many places I find myself drawing laurels and I bet you might like to draw them too!

I use these metallic paint pens and black chalkboard paper is great to have around to wrap gifts and draw on along with black scrapbook paper and black gift tags  and chalk markers for windows, chalkboards and paper!
