Last Minute Gift--in 30 Minutes or Less

Need a last minute gift idea?  Who doesn't?  You can make this simple gift in 30 minutes or less!

Start with a frame from the thrift store, dollar store, or your own stash.  Cut a piece of black construction paper or kraft paper to fit in the frame.  Print out the state of your choice.

Chalk the back of your printed out state.

Place on top of your construction paper and trace over the outline.

Chalk in,

or use white craft paint on the brown paper one.

I used a red chalkboard pen (red paint works equally as well) to freehand home on the state. 
Spray the chalked state with hairspray--the aerosol kind.

Pop it into the frame and you are done!
