Hi guys! I’m very excited to share with you the latest and greatest stencil innovation from Mod Podge Rocks! With Peel and Stick stencils from Mod Podge Rocks! it’s now easier than ever to stencil a variety of surfaces. Case and point this Chalkboard Menu Planner I whipped up in a jiffy thanks to Peel and Stick Stencils from Mod Podge Rocks!
I’m still finding hidden treasures piece by piece during my ongoing studio purge. Today’s Chalkboard Menu Planner was created with a beat up magnetic Whiteboard found buried under a pile of schtuff. I have liberated this once forgotten whiteboard and given it new life as a chalkboard menu planner!
My mama always told me, “the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach” and boy was she right! Having a visual menu plan front and center in the kitchen not only keeps me organized , it also eliminates the daily “What’s for dinner?” questioning from the family.
Stencils are all the rage these days. Mod Podge Rocks! Peel and Stick stencils totally “Rock” due to their peel and stick feature. They can be repositioned on a variety of surfaces up to 20 times before losing their stickiness at which point they become a regular stencil. No taping required…how cool is that?
How to make a Chalkboard Menu Planner
My New Years Resolution was to eat better and get organized. This Chalkboard Menu Planner helps me carry out both of my goals! You can use any surface you like to create this project….just add Chalkboard paint and Mod Podge Rocks! Peel and Stick Stencils!
- Surface to apply Chalkboard Paint (I used an old metal White board)
- Folk Art Chalkboard Paint
- Mod Podge Rocks! Peel and Stick Stencils (I used Keys)
- Multi-Surface paint in a contrasting color for stenciling (I used Martha Stewart Metallic)
- Mod Podge Spouncers
- Mod Podge Podgeable Glitter
STEP 1: Cover your surface with Folk Art Chalkboard Paint and follow package directions for additional coats and drying times.
STEP 2: Once Chalkboard paint has cured position Mod Podge Rocks! Peel and Stick stencils and apply paint in a contrasting color (I used Martha Stewart Metallic) with Mod Podge Rocks! Spouncers (these spouncers are the bomb .com for stenciling)
STEP 3 (optional): While paint is still wet apply Mod Podge Rocks! Podgeable Glitters through stencil. What I love about this glitter is the precision tip that allows you to apply glitter exactly where you want it!

STEP 4: Prime Chalkboard surface by covering with chalk and wiping away.
STEP 5: Write out your menu. I find my menu plans at Cooking Light “The Sunday Strategist”
So there you have it a simple Chalkboard menu planner to keep you organized and eating right! My family approached the healthy eating resolution with disdain, until they tasted the delicious and HEALTHY meals I’ve made. I dare say I’ve found the “key” to their hearts and I’m keeping them healthy to boot!
