I went to hobby lobby and picked up a medium sized chalkboard, white paint, and scrapbook stickers.
I traced out a rectangle and a decorative oval with a pencil on the chalkboard and painted around it with the white paint for the border. I added about 3 coats for it to cover the black completely.
Next, I found a font I like and imitated it for the letters with paint and a small brush inside the oval.
After all the paint dried, I added some faith-based scrapbook stickers just for embellishment. The plan was to paint the frame of the board, but things got a little busy so for now it's still wooden.
