I’m pretty sure coffee is universally beloved; how many of you are soooo much happier after your first cup in the morning? Mmmm, the smell of coffee brewing alone is enough to put a smile on my bleary-eyed face.
I decided to add a bit of decor to my coffee corner, since we use it every day. Why not make it prettier? I also wanted to celebrate the fun pack of Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods that I’d recently received! Who doesn’t love having Starbucks® at home?
With a quick trip to the craft store, I netted myself a small framed chalkboard and got to work.
Here’s what you need to make this chalkboard coffee sign:
Chalkboard sign (or chalkboard paint)
Chalk or chalk marker
Coffee word printable
First, print your sign art.
Once printed, I used a pencil to cover the back of the print completely with graphite.
As you can tell, I reuse a lot of prints to save paper. 😉
Next, line print up where you want it on your sign and tape it down.
Trace the letters using your pencil. Push down hard to transfer the design to the chalkboard.
When you peel back the paper, you should have a faint outline you can trace.
Copy the outline with chalk or chalk marker.
I like using chalk markers, since I feel like they are brighter and easier to read. They also easily wipe off with a wet wipe, you you don’t have to sweat mistakes!
Even using the marker, I traced mine twice to get a really vivid look. Then I freehand drew a cup of coffee and the corner graphic. I am in LOVE with my chalkboard coffee sign!
To celebrate my new sign, I brewed up a cup of the Caramel Caffè Latte to sip and enjoy. These are fun, because you get a packet to pour into your mug and then you brew the K-Cup® pod into the mug and stir to mix.
Now, I am one of those people who needs flavored creamer in her coffee, but this was DELICIOUS, just the two steps! Rich caramel flavor and so creamy, probably because it is made from milk. Check your grocery store, they come in 3 great Starbucks® signature flavors (Caramel, Mocha, and Vanilla) and 2 Starbucks® seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha, available for a limited time).
