I am so excited about this tutorial ya'll!
Not just because it is super easy and looks good but because it is going to help me get organized when it comes to mealtime.
So without further delay, here you go - Enjoy!
-small wooden spoons from the craft store
-hot glue gun
-craft paint color of your choice
-stickers that will fit on the wooden spoons
-letters for MENU
-small wooden box for recipe cards (I got mine at Michael's)
You can make a frame or use a store bought one.
-1/4 inch think wood
-3/4 inch wide moulding
-gorilla glue (or hot glue)
First paint the spoons.
put the stickers on
Hot glue the wooden spoons onto the clothes pins. Once you do this you will see the sides and if your OCD like me you will want to paint them like in the next picture.
See, doesn't that look better?
Now mod podge them. I used gloss finish because I think it looks good. :)
If you (or your handy man - thanks hubby!) are going to make your board these are the steps. If you found a store bought one then you don't need to do these steps.
Measure and cut rectangle 14 inches x 24 inches.
NOTE: These measurements are for 6 days. We go out to dinner on church nights.
TIP: use painters tape where your going to cut to avoid wood splitting.
Use your level to ensure it's straight.
Use a 45 degree angle to make the corners.
Paint the moulding trim.
and the wooden box for the recipe cards.
Choose the side that looks the best on the wood and poly it.
See how it brings out the rich tones in the wood grain?
Place the pieces evenly in the center and glue down.
NOTE: I did NOT use gorilla glue on the pieces, only the trim.
When using the gorilla glue be sure to read all the instructions and warnings before using. The glue expands 3-4 times the size of the the bead used so be careful! I learned this the hard way....
and there you have it. :) Simple, right?
Now to find a home for it.....
Be sure to check back each Monday for my Meal Plan Monday posts where I'll be sharing lots of yummy recipes.
