Some might call this trend a gimmick but it’s going to be filling shelves come Christmas 2015.
The chalkboard has moved off the wall and can be found throughout a range of products from baubles to hanging decorations and even ribbon. The matt black and chalky white effect looks vintage but the effect is cool and modern. Hmm! are you sold on this yet?
With blackboard paint and chalk as cheap as chips it could even make the perfect Christmas craft project. All you need to make your own chalkboard bauble is a steady hand some retro styling and a scarlet ribbon to hang your bauble. A sprig of holly also adds a flash of colour to this monochrome look.
