2 in 1 Holiday Chalkboard Plate

I created this plate with the idea of being able to use it for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. The plate is painted with chalkboard paint and you can write and erase your own holiday phrase

I used a wooden plate I bought at Hobby Lobby,some Chalkboard paint, 1 sheet of scrapbook paper and some pumpkin clipart 

I spray painted the plate with the Chalkboard paint. Spray at least 2 coats to be able to have the chalkboard effect 

I ran the scrapbook paper through my printer and added some text for a nicer look 

I then cut out a circle about the size of the middle of my plate and chalked the edges  

I glued the paper circle and pumpkin clipart down
using some Mod Podge  
With chalk, I added my holiday phrase and placed it on a cute stand.

You could find the pumpkin clipart, I used to make this plate,  at Digiart Cafe
