Steps to Make Chalk Pastel Ornaments

2. Put small pieces of painter’s tape on the back of the ornaments.

The tape helps the ornament templates not to move when kids are using the chalk. You can also have them hold them in place.

3. With a silver acrylic paint pen, draw a line from the top of the paper to each ornament.

You can also use chalk to dry a line, but do this step last as the chalk might smudge during the next step.

Use a ruler to draw the line with the paint pen.

  1. Hi, when I click on the link for the chalk pastels it takes me to the acrylic pens link. Could you fix so I can see the chalk pastels? Thanks a bunch!

    1. Updated! Any brand should be fine but I’ve linked to the brand we used. This brand also comes in a 24 pack which is cheaper.
