HOLIDAY DECORATING SERIES- PART 1- MARVY

With the holidays approaching fast, we’ve begun putting together a few lists of marker projects for holiday decorating! Whether you are entertaining guests for dinner, needing fun projects for the kids, or just wanting to make your house or office a bit more festive- keep your eyes here on the Marker Supply blog! We’ll be highlighting products from several different brands, and a few ways you can use them this holiday season!

This 1st Blog in the Holiday Decorating Series features products from Marvy Uchida!

The Marvy Easy Chalkboard Marker

This is one of several new markers here at Marker Supply, and we are excited about it! Chalkboard art is becoming so popular everywhere! This jumbo tip paint marker allows you to easily create a chalkboard surface on paper, wood, and terra cotta! Pair it with the Marvy Bistro Chalk Markers– which will wipe off with just a damp cloth- for easy sign making that you can use over and over!

(Tip: After creating your chalkboard surface, use permanent paint markers (Marvy Decocolor, etc) for the parts of your signs, decorations, etc. that you want to keep there. Then use a water-erasable paint marker (Marvy Bistro, etc) for any part you want changeable. Then when you wipe it with a damp cloth, everything will stay put except for what you want to change!)

Here’s how we used the Easy Chalkboard Marker for the holidays:

Cut out some thought or speech bubble shapes on cardboard or thick paper, then color with the Easy Chalkboard Marker. Use larger cut-outs with your friends as a “photo booth” style prop, or place above babies/pets to give them a voice for your photos/cards!

*The countdown calendar!
Exciting for the kiddos that wait for Santa, helpful for a busy holiday schedule, or fun to see how many days left of the year- make a countdown calendar to keep track of the time until the day you are waiting for! Paint your chalkboard surface on an object, then use the Bistro Chalk markers or plain chalk to make your numbers & change them each day!
