10-Minute Chalkboard Pumpkin Place Markers
I found these wood pumpkins at Target. They have them packaged in sets of two. They’re unfinished so the sky’s the limit in terms of what you can do with them. I thought they were the perfect size for place markers! In just minutes you can paint them and they’re ready for your next dinner party. Or perfect for Thanksgiving!!

How to Make 10-Minute Chalkboard Pumpkin Place Markers
It’s so easy! Here’s how to make these cute autumn place markers!
Stain the Stem
I used a walnut stain to paint the pumpkin stem. I dip a paper towel in water and then dip the wet paper towel in the stain. So easy!
I added a leaf ribbon which I think looks cute with the pumpkin because it looks like the pumpkin stems. My favorite leaf ribbon is wired and it’s great for all kinds of projects!
How to Write on Chalkboard Paint
To write your guests names on chalkboard paint, my favorite thing to use is chalkboard pens! They look so much richer and the lines are more clear than using actual chalk. To use a chalkboard pen, take an old piece of paper and push the chalkboard tip onto the paper to get the chalkboard fluid flowing. Initially the chalkboard pen might be very runny and ruin your writing. Push the tip against the paper and do some initial writing to see how it looks and make sure the fluid is smooth. Once it is running smoothly, write the name on your chalkboard pumpkin. I actually used paint markers on these which are permanent. If you want to change out the names I recommend using chalkboard pens.
