  1. Start by sketching out the Millennium Falcon onto a piece of cork board, then cut it out. Depending on the thickness of your cork board, you may want to either cut out another one from the cork or from poster board to give it more structure. 

2. If you cut out 2 pieces, glue them together around the edges. 

3. Paint the front and sides with chalkboard paint.

4. Fold a piece of leather in half, pinch the halfway point together, and thread it through a wooden bead. Leave a small loop on one side for hanging the chalkboard.

5. Once the board is completely dry, glue or staple the leather strap onto the back of the board at the desired length. 

6. Hang on the wall with a nail. 

Now you are ready to soar into the week with a great message board for the whole family.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
