I have been wanting to complete this project for a while, but I didn’t have any letters to finish it off. Enter mommy! My family is visiting me this week and so of course we must make time for crafts! I just don’t have as many resources here, so it is so great to have some brought in!
I started with a frame from Ikea, not the cheapest, I am sure most of you would be able to find some cheaper. The tutorial I saw used burlap, wich is probably better, but I didn’t have that so I used scrapbook paper. It stinks because it wasn’t the right size, but it works.
Something for backing (i.e. burlap, scrapbook paper, some other material)
Letters or stencils
Razor for cutting straight lines
Cup of tea 🙂
I used a different backing for the top, I thought it was cuter. Once again, scrapbook paper. The letters were from Michael’s, $20 before the 40% off coupon. (It had all the letters with about 8 different fonts of each)
Et voila! I added the letters for the days, a little rope on the top for hanging, and I already had the hook. I have dry erase markers from my son’s easel and there were two black markers, so one is going toward the menu board! You just erase it with a paper towel or tissue. Super easy
Finished project. Super easy, cute, and practical! Of course my husband still isn’t too convinced I will be using it. I will have to prove him wrong!
What do you all think? Did I do okay for what I had? Any suggestions or variations?
