Arts & Craft

Hey Teacher Friends!! Before I even get started I want to make sure you know about the GIVEAWAY I'm having right now... one person will win a $20 Gift Card to TpT!  Just go to yesterday's post, {here} and enter!!  It's that easy!

I haven't been able to start pulling together anything for my classroom since we're moving to Espana soon to teach, so I've been working on little things around the house to keep my hands and mind busy during this "in between" time. 

On September 7th I'm throwing my family friend Morgan and her fiancĂ©, Drew, a wedding shower.  
She was the MOH in my wedding this past June :)
They both went to the University of Georgia while my husband and I went to the University of South Carolina.  And these two teams just happen to be playing each other on September 7th!  So we decided to do a couple's tailgating shower!  I've been having so much fun pulling things together for the celebration. 

The invitations incorporated their initials and so I've been working with that and the color RED. 

A copy of the invites without the "details"

I found these cute letters at Michaels and knew I needed an M, an ampersand (&), and a D.  I also picked up a cute board that was on sale and some chalkboard pens!

The "d" backwards & halfway through painting
{I forgot to take "before" pictures! Whoops!}
I had leftover chalkboard paint from some wedding DIY, so I got to work! 

It was super simple y'all!  I painted the letters and the board with three layers of chalkboard paint on the front and back. 

And viola!!

Super cute chalkboard letters...

And the pretty board...

I plan on doing something like this with the board

or this...

and then decorating the letters with my red chalk pen with something like this maybe...
Thanks Lucky Magazine for the Image!
Now if someone could help me figure out the menu, I'd be all set!  Any suggestions?  It'll be hot and I'm on a budget!
