Step 1 – Dip the sticks in the chalkboard paint about halfway, letting excess paint drip off in the can.

Step 2 – Set the sticks out to dry. We weighted them down with a ruler and put a paper on the floor to catch the drips. Wait 24 hrs.

Step 3 – Drill a small hole at the top of the stick. Place a wooden block underneath the stick so you can drill all the way through.
