On Monday I shared with you my easy DIY decorative chalkboards, and today I’m going to show you something equally simple – how to do chalkboard lettering that looks so good people will think it was your major in college.
You don’t need one single artistic bone in your body – just this simple trick! Watch and see:
These are the chalk markers I use (affiliate link): Bistro Chalk Markers
With this simple chalkboard lettering technique you can create anything. If you can print it, you can chalk it. Use it for signs, banners, posters, wall art – even chalkboard food labels!
And now for the your free chalkboard lettering stencils! Use the printables below to recreate my “First Day of School” chalkboard signs. The small sizes fit great on a 12×12″ chalkboard, and the larger sizes are for something a little bigger, like the 12×18″ chalkboard shown above.
These links will open a PDF document for you to print from your computer. These free printables are for personal use only. Please credit All Things G&D and link back to this post if you use them. Thank you!

Can’t wait to try…. Anyway to get the template for “pre school”??
Hi Susan! I just added a preschool template. You can find it in the small template list. Hope that helps!
I never knew how the stencils worked! Thanks so much!
Isn’t it surprising how easy it is?! Hope you chalk up everything in sight now, Rebecca Jo.
I found it very helpful!!Thanks for sharing it!!
My pleasure, Marta! Thank you so much for your comment.
Awesome! Nothing like buying my chalkboard almost a month ago but waiting until the night before to do it!
Thanks so much for the tutorial! Getting ready for my wedding and am definitely going to try the transfer idea onto the chalkboards we use!
