What are some used for craft slate?

Someone gave me some craft slate and I don't know what to do with it.

Since slate is an excellent material for outdoor use, most people paint it with acrylic paint. If the slate is smooth, you can use it as a chalk board. You can also drill a small hole through the slate and make a clock.

This material is mostly used for hand painted projects. The surface has a good texture. The finished pieces make great wall decor.

It is mostly used for hand painted projects. Painters like it because of the texture it gives the painting. You can make some beautiful wall hanging with it, signs with cute sayings, flowers, pets, or anything that you want to paint on them.

You can make signs out of them for all sorts of occasions. Sometimes craft slate is used for making tombstones. You just have to let your inner artist out and you can explore. Craft slate can also be painted and can also be sold. Many people make signs out of them.

Drill a small hole on top with a glass drill bit. Paint flowers or old Christmas cards and glue onto the slate. Hang on the tree.

Craft slate is usually used to make signs. You can make a sign for your yard that says "Welcome" or "Keep out", depending on your mood. You can also make a sign that says "The Jones Residence" or "Home Sweet Home". Decorate it with paint and sand it a little to give it that old, worn look.
