DIY Double Blackboard Sign

I looked all over for a double blackboard sign the other day and couldn’t find what I was looking for. I found plain blackboards and whiteboards, but nothing that would stand upright without falling over. Sounds like a DIY project, right?

My thoughts exactly. So, I bought two blackboards and got to work. Surprisingly, it only took about 10 minutes to make.

If you want to try to make your own, gather the materials below and follow the tutorial.

Hinges
Ribbon
Scissors
Super glue
Mini screwdriver
2 blackboards (same size)

Step 1

Position your blackboards face down so that their frames meet.

Then, decide where you’d like to place your hinges.

Step 2

Screw the hinges in place.

Step 3

Since the hinges will only hold the blackboards together, we need a way to keep them from falling flat when stood at an angle (like in the image above). The ribbon will help hold the boards in place.

Cut a piece of ribbon just a little bit longer than the position you want your boards to stand in.

Step 4

Super glue the ribbon in the center of the back of each blackboard frame.

Set the boards aside to dry.
