DIY Cheese Plate For Thanksgiving Entertaining (PHOTO)

Wit & Whistle

Not many of us serve cheeses on a regular basis, but with the holidays coming up we should. Making a cheese plate is an easy and stress-free option for entertaining. All you have to do is buy a couple of cheeses and crackers -- that's it, you're done. No chopping, no cooking. But of course, to make a cheese plate it helps to have an actual plate for the cheese.

Don't bother going out to buy a cheese plate for the couple of times a year you need one -- make it instead. A little bit of chalkboard paint and a steady hand is all you need to create a cheese plate to call your own.
