I know I can think of some use for it???

A paperweight?  Too expected.

Use it to balance a table??  I don’t have a table THAT unbalanced.

Make a sign??  Yea, for a very short word.

And then I saw the chalkboard paint!!

Aha!  A chalkboard note pad!

I can add burlap around the edge like I did on the sides of the blogger saw blade sign.

I’m starting to sound a bit too frugal!

gluing twine to chalk https://countrydesignstyle.comI do realize hot glue will not hold twine on a piece of chalk for the long haul, but temporary, until I need another piece of chalk this will work find.

The other end of the twine is thumbtacked to the side of my chalkboard note pad.
