Spray Chalk Spring Flower Garden project

Project creation and images by Tonya Staab for Make and Takes blog.

Head outside with the kids this spring and create a 2-dimensional flower garden using Testors’ Spray Chalk.

Materials: Testors Spray Chalk, Cardboard Box, Box Cutter, Marker

Prepare: Sketch flowers and leaves onto the cardboard with a marker. Carefully cut out your sketches with a box cutter.

Make sure working surface is clean and thoroughly dry. Shake the can of Spray Chalk before and during use. 

Apply: Hold spray can approximately 4-10 inches from surface and at a 45 degree angle. Place your stencil on a flat surface and spray the chalk around the stencil in a consistent and steady manner. To make new hues, spray colors on top of each other while the chalk is still wet.

Finish: Your flower garden will wash away using pressure from a garden hose or you can let it fade to white after 7 days and have the rain wash it away.
