If your children are like mine, who come home from school with an extensive amount of papers, art work and crafts, then this project could be very beneficial to your sanity.
This is one day worth of paper for one child (I have two in school ) See what I mean?
For a while I wanted something where I could proudly display the wonderful things my kids make at school. I’m sorry but the fridge door just is not cutting it for me. It makes my kitchen look messy.
Thanks to Pinterest (again) I found my kind of project. Easy to make, inexpensive and kid friendly.
You will need:
A wood board (less than $2.00 at Hobby Lobby)
an oversized clothe pin (also from Hobby Lobby about $2.50)
sticker letters (can use vinyl letters, too)
wire (got it from a old and unused picture frame)
spray paint (any color you like. I used green)
wood glue (not on picture)
Start by drilling two small holes to the board (upper corners) for the wire to run through them.
Spray paint the board.
While it dries, use your child labor efficiently (so kidding!) and have them modpodge the string of scrapbook paper to the pin (I only did one side since the other side you won’t able to see as it’s the side that will be attached to the board).
Either step can go next: Or apply the letters with the saying or glue (wood glue) the pin to the board.
Insert the wire and you are ready to hang it in the perfect place where your kids can see that their hard work pays off because Mami has turned it into an art display for every welcome house guest to admire.
