DIY Growth Chart
Well, our two littles are growing like weeds. They are short, yes, but growing nonetheless:) Micah is always reminding us, “I’m growing up!” She is so right, and now is the time to make as many fun memories as possible!
One small memory we both had growing up was measuring and seeing just how big we were getting – every kid wants to feel like a BIG kid! When we were young, we just marked up the walls. I suppose we could do that, but I would prefer a much cuter approach – enter the DIY Growth Chart!
– board (we got ours at Lowe’s)
– wood stain of choice
– foam brush
– 4″ stencils for numbers (we got ours from Amazon)
– paint color of choice and a small paintbrush
Stain your wood using your foam brush and let it dry overnight
Measure inches and feet, making a mark with a pencil. Tip: Start your first measurement at 6 inches that way when its hanging it looks better on the wall!
Place your numbered stencils in the appropriate foot markers along your board (you can tape them down if you want to) Then carefully paint in the numbers.
Paint white lines over your inch and foot marks
And that’s it – just let it dry, hang it up, and measure those kiddos! We’d love to see how yours turn out! Be sure to like us on Facebook and subscribe to our blog to keep up with all our tutorials and giveaways!
