Anyways, I'm not going to do a tutorial, because there are PLENTY out there - - and it's pretty self-explanatory. I loosely used the tutorial over at 517 Creations, so head over there for that.
If you'd rather buy a growth chart - there are lots of you who are craft observers rather than craft doers - I have a friend who owns a company that sells them HERE.
So anyways, no tutorial, but I have a few tips...
I used spraypaint stain on the light board - so easy!! I didn't have it in dark, so I wiped on stain for it, but it took longer was was messier - the spray was awesome.
This triangle thing has a lip on it, so it hooked to the edge of the board and made a straight line every time - perfect - my board was already marked at each spot that needed a line.
I used these number stencils and then filled them in so they didn't look like a stencil - seemed easier than trying to get the exact font, etc:
My new favorite place to dry things - the road! Plenty of sun! Doesn't kill the grass under it....
Now, to get a permanent marker and start marking heights....
