This easy project is less than $10 and is a great addition to any wall!

What you need:

-1 board (Use some scrap wood if you have it, or check out the scrap piles at a hardware store. You can also find great craft boards at any craft store.)

-Wooden letters

-Clothes pins or clips

-Hot glue gun

-Paint/stain of choice


To make this art display, take your board and paint or stain it as desired. We went for a quick white wash by using a little white paint diluted with water.

Paint your wooden letters. Spray paint works great for this!

When everything is painted to your liking, use a hot glue gun to attach your letters and clips. You could personalize your board with your child's name, or use other creative words or phrases. 

Using a staple gun and some string or ribbon, you’re able to hang your new display and enjoy!
