With Halloween behind us and Christmas quickly approaching, I am already unloading all of the Holiday bins that are piled in our garage. Have you started digging through your Christmas decor yet? I will admit, I am one of those crazy Christmas ladies that starts the Christmas music on November 1st. Don’t hate me!
This year, I’ve been wanting to get a bit more creative with my decorating and have enlisted the help from Chalkola. These magical, beautiful, SIMPLE to use Premium Wet Wipe Markers are taking plain old chalk and kicking it up a notch! They are the best things ever invented. I’m serious.

~How To Use~
I was given one package of the “Platinum Series” with the 15mm Jumbo Tip and one package of 10 party colors with 5.5mm bullet tip. For the designs below I used both sizes in various places on the boards. The jumbo tips really came in handy for the bigger letters. These will work great on larger surfaces that you want to cover quicker. The smaller tipped ones are ideal for smaller, detailed work.
Step 1: Shake well with cap on and up-right. (30 seconds) Remove cap.
Step 2: Press the tip to and fro multiple times to quickly get the ink flowing. Recap tightly after use and store in horizontal position. (1-3 minutes)
Step 3: Write with your marker! Push down on pen when you need more ink. And that’s it! Be creative and HAVE FUN.
I found these VERY inexpensive chalkboards at my local crafting store, one for $5 and the other 80% off from Halloween for only $2. These boards are actually really easy to find. Target has even had them on numerous occasions in the dollar spot. And again, what’s great about these is that you can use them on a huge number of different surfaces! But for this post I chose chalkboard 🙂
I found some cute Christmas and Halloween signs to copy from Pinterest and just got creative with it. Check out how bold and crisp these colors are on the boards! They are gorgeous!
I have to say, I am actually really impressed with these markers. To start off with, I shook the markers vigorously for about a minute and then had to press the tip for a while to get the paint to come down, maybe two or three minutes, but once the paint was to the tip it was smooth sailing from there. Look how great the colors look on these boards!! I can now add color and style to almost any surface with such ease. I am extremely happy with the ease of use and the quality of vibrant colors I get from Chalkola!
