How to Make a Growth Chart
share on social:
Growth charts are amazing baby shower gifts and an adorable decoration for any little one’s bedroom. Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to make your own with this growth chart tutorial!
1 1x10x6ft piece of common board
Chalk Paint (whatever color you choose)
Screws and Wire
To start with you will want to sand down your piece of common board. The better you sand the crisper your lines will be on your finished growth chart. Once you have sanded you will stain the board (on both sides). Just dip your cloth in the stain and wipe it on the wood. Then go back and wipe off any access. You can see the before and after the stain here:
Once your wood is stained and 100% dry (let it dry for at least 24 hrs) the real fun begins. You will cut out the FREE ruler SVG design on the Oramask stencil. Weed as you normally would (pulling out all the parts you want painted on your growth chart).
Then using the transfer tape, apply the stencil to the design. The video at the bottom illustrates this clearly for you. Once the stencil is applied you will paint.
Peel up the stencil when you are done painting and then apply the screw and wire on the back to hang it. There you have it! A beautiful growth chart to use in your own little ones room, house decor, or to give away as a gift that’s as easy as one, two, three.
