"growth chart with tutorial - 1 x 8, paint pen, can attach string and clothespins for photos - I marked off 1-inch marks along the entire length of the board. In order to mimic the lines on a ruler, I made the “quarter” lines 2 inches long and the “eighth” lines 1 inch long. Make sense? I drew all the lines in pencil first, then went back and went over them with my paint pen. "
DIY Growth Chart from mdf. I think I might have to take another look at all of those thin, painted, wood pieces they have next time I'm at Michael's. They would be so cute going down the side of this. Maybe even to mark each foot?
