Dusty Walls and Ghostly Writings

There's something kinda spooky about chalk. Wipe clean your image and left behind is a ghostly image of drawings past. There's something wonderfully wicked about old dusty chalkboards. Dusty old anything reminds me of tattered sheets in the wind and creaky doors. Perfect for a little Halloween fun! Check out some of these wicked Halloween inspirations using chalkboard paint and some good old dusty chalk.

Poetic Home has some fantastic chalkboard ideas...

Old books and planters make great Halloween accessories! Not to mention that vintage typewriter... where can I get me one of those?

Apartment Therapy knows how to spook up some glam with chalkboard paint borders.

Make online has these fantastic chalkboard paint bottles. Write dusty messages or contents of potion bottles on them!

LittleBigHead made this super cute chalkboard pumpkin. Dress him up differently every day! I personally dig the mustachio look.

What about this charming chalkboard witch from Colonial Candle? I bet you could make your own with some chipboard and vintage photos.

Chalkboard paint is a great way to not only add a little darkness, but an ever changing surface! Paint a frame, paint and old statue... it all looks cool with chalkboard paint and a little imagination.


  1. Totally love your blog! And the chalk board ideas are swell. Pier 1 had big jars with chalk board labels on them that would also be perfect for Halloween displays. You can fill them with assorted goodies and label them for the season! Thanks for sharing all these great ideas! :o)

  2. Thanks! I'll have to go check out Pier 1...
