faux chalkboard wreath

When I was planning decorations for a baby shower, I commissioned this beautiful burlap and lace wreath to serve as a backdrop for the guest book table.  I really wanted to incorporate the mommy-to-be's due date somehow onto the wreath.  I love the current chalkboard trend, so I went to several craft stores looking for a ready-made, thin chalkboard that could be easily attached to the wreath.  I couldn't find anything to suit my needs.  Then it occurred to me that I could probably fashion a faux chalkboard out of black poster board and a white paint marker.  I loved the result! Not only did my faux chalkboard look like the real thing, but since the poster board was so light weight it was super easy to attach to the wreath. Easy and inexpensive?  That's my kind of decoration!
