A unique and affordable gift for parents & kids
This portable growth chart is a great gift for a young family.
This project I realized keeping in mind a dear friend of mine. It was soon Alicja´s birthday and I wanted to gift her something personal and useful. She has two adorable & fun girls and it´s so exciting to see them growing up.
I know she is planning to move houses at one point and this way she can carry those beautiful memories with her.
You think it´s a whole day project? Absolutely not! Watch the video or keep reading below.
This all you need to get started:
+ wooden board (90cmX30cm)
+ paint, brushes, pencil & measuring tape
+ drill & thread to hang the board
Nice to have:
+ non-woven fleece
+stencil, stickers & template
Measurement & Design: Create a template before you start
This board is 30 cm (11,8 Inch) wide to offer enough space for two kids and their beautiful memories to be captured: dates, age, quotes or pictures.
I decided to mark the growth measurement until 140cm (55.1 Inch) but leave room for my design and tall kids ;)
The board is in total 90cm (35,4 Inch) long.
The first growth mark I made at 80cm (31,5 Inch), which is 10 cm ( starting from the edge) of the board.
Then I made every 10cm (3,9 Inch) a line and every 20cm (7,9 Inch) I added the hight in cm.
Action: Painting, Marking Growth Steps & Your personal touch
Last step: Drill a hole and attach the thread while making two knots.
Voila! You are done!
