Easter Duckies

Done up in chalk & glitter

It seems like I’ve been painting everything with chalk paint recently, like here and here.

Chalk paint is so easy to make and has a lovely flat, pastel-esque texture.

The real reason I love it so much is that it sticks to any surface, even without primer! That’s one less painting step to worry about.

I’ve had some rubber duckies hiding in my drawer for awhile.

So I decided to give them a mini Easter makeover with homemade chalk paint.

Read on for a tutorial.
