Free Fall Chalkboard Printable – Available In Printer Paper Size & Poster Size
UPDATE: Enjoy this free fall printable that I used in a project at my previous home. We’ve moved into a new-to-us home and I’m having so much fun changing my style! Click HERE to see more about the total remodel that we’re giving to our new home.
A lot of you have asked about the chalkboard art above my fireplace that I revealed during my Fall Home Tour last week. I had fun doing a little teasing and stringing you along. 😉
You’ve probably figured out by now that this isn’t a real chalkboard.
When I decided that I wanted a chalkboard above the fireplace for fall, I considered doing the real-deal chalkboard art. Even though I’m no good at freehand chalkboard art, I knew that I could get a great result using the same method that I used for the chalkboard that is part of my typography gallery wall.
But I decided against the real-deal because I just didn’t have the time that it would take to create something so large – this one measures 36″ x 48″. I needed something large because the fireplace wall in my house is two stories tall.
So here’s the big secret – it’s just a printable that I created and then took to Staples and had printed out as an engineering print. For less than $7. Yes, you read that right – less than $7 for a 36″ x 48″ piece of art. Bam.
And I want to share it with all of you! Simply click on the link above each one to download the size that you want. BTW – I know that the ‘a’ is missing at the end of ‘coco’, but I did that on purpose. I guess I thought that it looked kind of cutesy that way.

This size is an Adobe file. If you want to have a large engineering print made, you’ll need to download it to a thumb drive. Take the thumb drive to your local printing place to get the size that you want printed.

This size is a file that you can download and then print on your home printer.
One more tidbit before I go. When I attached the print to the wall (using 3M Velcro strips), it was looking a little plain.
To give it the appearance of being a framed chalkboard, I “framed” it with burlap ribbon that I glued along the edges of the poster (not the wall!) with a glue stick. Make sure you allow the glue to dry before you hang it or it might just fall right off.
I encourage you to give it a try. It was so easy to do and makes quite the statement. No mistaking what season it is in my house!
How’s your fall decorating coming along?
What a great idea and so affordable! How nice of you to share it with us as a freebie!!
Really cute…thanks so much for sharing…
It’s beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing it!
It’s great! Really sweet of you to share…thanks, Suzy!
This is such a fabulous project, Suzy! I hope it goes viral! I’m certainly pinning and sharing on my fb page. I used an engineering print for our family window picture in the kitchen and I love it! Thanks for sharing!
Suzy, thank you so much for sharing this. I love it! laurie
Love it! Thanks!
Love this idea! Never even thought of that!
That is such a cool idea, Suzy! Question, was it created with a white background (like in Word) and then printed on black paper? LOVE it!
Looks great! I’d love if you’d link up to The DIY’ers. http://homecomingmn.blogspot.com/2013/10/diyers-32-and-marathon-weekend.html
This is gorgeous. I love it. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty
What a great idea! I have a large area over my fireplace too and I’m already thinking past Christmas decorating….
Wonder where I could print this…no Staples anywhere here. If you have any ideas, send them on!
Hi Susan. Office Depot also does engineering prints, although the one that I checked with can only print up to 24″ wide. Others may be able to print wider. FedEx Office (formerly know as Kinkos) does them too, but I don’t know what their size limitations are. If you don’t have either of those near you, I would imagine that most any office supply store would offer this service.
Wonderful!! We do have Office Depot. I’m going to try this, thank you very much!
I host a weekly link party called Seasonal Sundays and would love to have you link your post. The link goes up on Saturdays at 7pm EST.

I have been trying to print your fall printable with no luck. It says my email is not noticed. I have been receiving your blogs for ~2 years. Help!! I want to give this to my mother-in-law to go with the white pumpkin centerpiece I bought her!
Hi Bev. I’m sorry it took me so long to respond to you! Try this link instead: https://app.box.com/s/i9skkf3q8gjjw3hyztkd. It should work for you, but please let me know if it doesn’t!
Fantastic chalkboard wordart! Thank you for sharing.
I love this printable and did save it – but then I wondered why the A is dropped from the word cocoa??? Otherwise though it is lovely!!
