Paint: diy sports growth chart
Make your own handpainted sports themed growth chart with picture slots.
Each circular hole has a plastic sleeve secured to the back where Aidan's mom can insert a picture.
How to make a growth chart with picture slot:
Step 1: Sketch out your design for reference.
Step 2: Cut 1/2" mdf board to 10" x 41". Trace paint can or similar 4" round object to make equally spaced picture holes.
Cut out holes with jig saw.
Step 3: Prime and begin with background paint.
Step 4: Add name. Print out to size then trace letters with ballpoint pen to leave indent.
Step 5: Add wood cuts with wood glue and clamps.
Seal everything with clear gloss poly.
