"S" is for Sports Growth Chart

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.

Step 6: Glue plastic picture sleeves to back using E6000.
Add sawtooth hanger at center top.
