Hey Loves!

I sure hope you’re not sick of nursery post. I have a super quick tutorial for you- I mean FAST!

Ready? Set. Go!

1. Go to local craft store and purchase wooden letter of choice and themed scrapbook paper (unless you already have this). I got the larger flatter letter that was not painted.

2. Align scrap book paper and either Modge Podge or hot glue it to the letter.

That’s it. I told ya it was quick…and inexpensive too. The letter was $3.49+30% off and the scrap book paper was $.44/sheet.

Until next time!

More for the Nursery…Watch him grow!

Hey Loves!

So I’m back with another inexpensive and quick nursery decor tutorial.

Let me start with saying this: I was not going to make this item. I was going to buy it, whatever the cost. My reason: I’m not that great at math. Well, I was wrong (about the making it part, not so much the math…).

So, my baby boy and all out future children need a growth chart right? I mean, marking ticks in a wall simply won’t do! So, I searched high and low for a growth chart that went well with our home decor and $50-$80 later, I decided to just see if there was a tutorial that would cost less and easy enough for me to complete and I found this.

Amazing right? So, I went to Home Depot bought a fence slat.

Instead of painting it, I stained it to go with out home decor a little better. Note: Stain takes longer to dry than paint. While the stain I was drying, I cute out the numbers (1-6) with my cricut.

After everything was cut and dry (literally), I got out my tape measure, pencil and protractor. I took it one foot at a time and measured each inch, making the 1/2 foot mark (6 inches) longer that the other inch marks, and made each foot measurement longer than the half-foot.

Then I painting the lines in grey, added the numbers and viola! I a growth chart for little time, effort and totaling $1.71. Cant beat that if you tried!
