Awesome Free Dingbat Fonts for Chalkboards

I love playing around with Photoshop Elements, and ever since my son was born, I have been obsessed with making chalkboard prints.  They’re so trendy right now, and they are so freakin’ simple to make!  Seriously.  All you need is a chalkboard background and lots (and lots!) of different fonts, including fun dingbat ones.  Here I’ll show you some of my favorite dingbats to use with chalkboard posters….everything from frames and ribbons to doodles and embellishments!


Awesome Free Dingbat Fonts for Chalkboards

Without further ado, here is a collection of some awesome free dingbat fonts for chalkboards!  Links for all of them can be found beneath the image.

[Most are free for personal-use only, so please double-check their terms of use before using.]

Brackets | Bergamot Ornaments | Bodoni Ornaments | Eau De Rose | From This Moment | Go Around The Books – Arrows | It Was a Good Day | KG Arrows | KG Flavor and Frames Seven | Nymphette | Old Retro Labels | Pea Lauren Doodles | Pea KT Doodles | Sleep On The Moon | Swinging | Under |

[NOTE: I recently learned that Bodoni Ornaments should not be a free font.  While it is available as a free download from various sites online, it is apparently not supposed to be free, so I have therefore chosen to remove my previous link out of respect to its creator.  If you’d like to download it, it can be purchased here.  Enjoy!]
