2. Position first ribbon across the top of chalkboard, covering the pre-drilled holes that the original black string hung from.  Use tape (washi/masking/whatever you have on hand) to hold the ribbon in position.

 3. Flip chalkboard over and hot glue the ends to back of board using hot glue.  Secure the second ribbon to the back of board just outside the existing pre-drilled holes, again, use the glory that is hot glue.  Once dry, flip to front and remove tape.
