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.
3. Cut off the edges using an exacto knife or scissors with skilled hands.
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!
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!
