So when I saw this cute idea on Pinterest I quickly pinned it knowing I would be making one of these as well. (Pinterest is such a great resource for creative ideas.) You can see step by step instructions for the one shown above on Whipper Berry.
When things like this happen, I always tell myself that only God is perfect. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)
I continued stencilling on the numbers when I was wide awake and took them up to 6' just as Heather did with hers.
I could not find the little tags shown in the original. (would you believe Hobby Lobby does not carry these?) I could have tried an office suppy store as Heather suggested but because I planned this chart for both my grandsons, I punched circles of two different colors from card stock. I used sticky backed dot circles to write their information, stuck the two together and laminated it.
I just hot glued the little circle tag to the head of the pin, pushed it through the burlap, squeezed the backing and slipped it onto the pin. It worked quite nicely.
I used a circular box from Hobby Lobby as my storage container. I painted the bottom and the lid in red acrylic paint, cut paper to fit around the sides, and glued a ribbon around the lip of the lid.
