Lettering is tough. It’s on my learn to do list, but in fairness, it’s also not hard to cheat.
P.S., this technique works for lettering on wood signs as well.
I switched out the decor to Christmas, then realized that I had neglected the chalkboard not long before company was coming over. About 30 minutes later I had this simple sign ready to go. And I even made you a video.
1. print out your lettering using whatever font you like.
2. trace the lettering on the backside of the paper using chalk.
3. place the lettering face up on the board, with the chalk down, and trace the letters with a ballpoint pen.
4. remove the paper and trace your guidelines with chalk. Or paint if you are painting on wood.
Here’s how it works:

So easy it’s like cheating.
You can get that chalkboard at World Market, here.
The chalk pens are just like these, from Amazon.
