I love making chalkboards of alll sizes and shapes, they are so versatile. Today, I’m going to give you tips on how to make small chalkboard tags.

I keep all of my scraps no matter how small. I found a couple of pieces of thin plywood that were similar in size to use for my small chalkboard tags. The long strip was so easy to paint with my small foam roller.
You can buy this type of wood at Hobby Lobby
You can see the ones on the right were already cut on my miter saw when I figured out it would be easier to wait and cut them AFTER they were painted. That’s why I’m here, to help you learn how to DIY smart! By cutting them first, I found they were more difficult to paint than the long strip of thin plywood on the left.
When the chalkboard paint was dry, then I took the long strip to the compound miter saw and cut them into squares and rectangles. Of course I had to touch up two sides with some chalkboard paint, but it was much easier this way than cutting them and then painting.
I drilled small holes on both sides (top) of some of the chalkboard tags, and only one small hole on the others so they can be used as chalkboard price tags for craft shows.
I will give you the details of this wire basket organizer with small chalkboard tags next week.
The small chalkboard tags came in very handy at Glendale 2016 as hanging price tags on my signs and other items.
If you don’t have scrap plywood to make your own, you could pick up these chalkboard tags on Amazon.
