So, didn’t think you would need an instruction manual to read my chalkboard, did you?
Me neither, it all made sense in my head…until the Mr. pointed out it didn’t…
Here, we’ll do a test – read this:
Now did you:
A. Read it left to right
B. Correctly read it clockwise?
If you said clockwise, congratulations! Your brain works like mine, or should I say sorry, your brain works like mine? :)
I got this idea to make a wreath using Isaiah 9:6 when I was paging through the Rachel Ray Magazine at my mom’s house. They had artwork that was a wreath like this, but the wording was all about what was in the magazine issue. (I tried going to the website to find it, but had no luck!)
After sketching it all out, it made sense in my head to obviously draw the words around the circle but I guess I could see how it makes sense to read it left to right as well…not like we read left to right normally or anything…ahem…
For the people that answered A. above,
let me share my Handy Dandy Instruction Manual with you –
See, makes so much more sense that way, right?
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.”
I love that verse especially at Christmas time, I can’t hear it without singing (in my head, you do not want to hear that out loud) Handel’s Messiah “Unto Us”. So beautiful, my Grandpa always had it playing at Christmas when I was a little girl.
After seeing these pictures, I realize I need to clean it up a bit more, I had it about 75% done when my favorite little 4 year old ran her fingers thru it when I was changing her brother’s diaper.
I put her to bed, had a glass of wine, and reworked the whole thing, and it actually came out better the 2nd time, so maybe she did me a favor…
or maybe it just looks better after the wine? :)
Am I crazy? Did you answer B too?

This is awesome! You did an amazing job……please send me just a smidge of your talent, I can’t even make our chalked menu look good :) Thanks for sharing, visiting from Savvy Southern Style.
I just absolutely love this!!
PS- everything always looks better with that 2nd glass of wine!
I could read it right away. You need to copy this somehow and SELL them. It is beautiful.
haha this is pretty funny! I read it clockwise! No questions here. This came out awesome!
love it….I saw that picture too and wanted to do something similar…love that we’re creative twins……I think it helps that I know the verse so I was able to read it right away….hugs..xo
I read it like you meant for it to me read! That is the correct way to read a wreath made out of writing!!! :) And I love it – you did an awesome job!
Ok, it doesn’t make sense to read it from left to right. I mean that’s for Japanese people, right? It seems like husbands in general enjoy some disagreeing. Why would they ever say yes honey without a fight?
Looks fabulous. I had no problems reading it without a tutorial.
Clockwise for me. Your wreath is amazing. I cannot believe you did that by hand. You are the chalkboard queen!
LOVE this…yep, I read it clockwise :) Perfect!!
Left to right, right to left, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! BEAUTIFUL!
So pretty and you put it all together so well!! Love that this is different and so meaningful!
This is SO beautiful, you are amazing! Just pinned it!
Oh my gosh. This is SO BEAUTIFUL! I totally have a crush on it! A big wet kiss kind if crush! It made my heart skip a beat.
Read it from the capital A, which to me would begin the reading!
Lovely, might have to give this a try myself!!
Sending wishes for a lovely festive season to you and yours!
Absolutely stunning – pinned and shared on Facebook!
So beautiful Kelly, the patience it must have taken:)! It is spectacular! Jen
Don’t change a thing – I think it looks perfect just the way it is!!
I actually read it as you intended.
Maybe I’m just crazy too!
This is amazing! You did this by hand? Wow, I am beyond impressed.
