It’s not often that I write about D.I.Y. craft projects, but this stuff is so beautiful (and so in right now), I couldn’t resist!

This is Chalk Couture, and apparently everyone knew about it but me. I was introduced to this very cool business by fellow blogger, Crystal Wykes who writes Crazy4Kids and sells her chalk work under the name Crystals Chalked Creations. Chalk Couture sells beautiful stencils and gorgeous-colored chalk paste (removable) and chalk ink (permanent) which you can use to decorate anything from designs on actual chalk boards to walls, stationery, art, anything! I can think of a million uses for them.

In addition to purchasing kits and a la carte designs and supplies, you can also take a subscription which entitles you to new stencils and supplies every month. And if you become a ‘designer,’ then you (like Crystal) will get your own page on the Chalk Couture page so that you get credit for the traffic you direct to the site!

After a little hunting around, I discovered that quite a few people are selling their finished creations on Etsy. They’re doing such beautiful work, I thought I’d showcase some of my faves. Photo credits/Etsy shop names appear when you hover over each picture, and I’ve linked to the items for sale below the picture collage.

If you go to the Chalk Couture website, please do it through Crystal’s link. Thanks!

  3. Looking cute, eh?
    (Do the people of Broad Channel still have their unique mailboxes? or did Hurricane Sandy take care of that novelty too.)

  4. I always like the look of this stuff in other people’s houses but think it would just look horribly twee in my house. No idea why. Maybe because it works best in houses that are all streamlined and matchy and that is absolutely not my home. I am artistic and have handwriting that draws compliments all the time but I absolutely cannot pull this type of stuff off. A kit, therefore, is a great idea.

  5. *Very* nice!! I especially like the skull – not because I’d ever put something like it on my wall, heh, but it’s just quite a piece of artwork!
    I’m pretty sure I’ve seen menus in some restaurants done using this technique.
