We are happy to be able to pick this month's Wood You Like To Craft? theme, Growth Charts! We have wanted to make growth charts for our kids for a long time. They grow up so fast!
Our kids are animal lovers and these are perfect.
First we had Home Depot slice up a piece of 1/2 inch mdf, 12 inches wide and 42 inches long.
To create the pennant, we cut with a jigsaw a notch about 2 1/2 inches up from the bottom.
We also glued in grommets into drilled holes to create the official pennant look.
Nicole and her daughter picked what they thought would be my boys' favorite animals and cut the shapes out on 1/8 inch mdf. They are so cute and the boys love them! We had fun naming all the creatures as we mod podged the papers on.
The majority of the paper we used is from the "Sweet Day" line by Echo Park.
