Chalkboard Family Tree


Remember the chalkboard I made from the old window frame I received from my father-in-law?  


Yeah!  That one.  If you missed the post, you can read about it here:  CHALKBOARD.  I erased the calendar for now and added this, just in time for my in-laws that will be visiting for Thanksgiving.


This is the family tree for my husband's side of the family.  We will be hosting them for Thanksgiving and I thought adding the tree would be a special way of honoring his parents, siblings, and their families.  

The chalkboard is attached to the window frame with a few simple screws so removing it to change the message was super quick.  Having the chalkboard off of the frame makes it much easier to erase and draw on.  Drawing around all of those panes would be...a pain, lol.  Ok, that was corny.



I began by sketching out a simple tree...large tree since this is a big chalkboard and the tree needed five branches.


After the tree was drawn, I began adding the names of each family that branches off of my parents-in-law, Peggy and Emmett.  (Notice the cute heart with P + E!)






I think they'll like it.  What do you think?  Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  It's TEN days away!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
