Hope you all had an awesome weekend! You don’t have to stick around here long to know my love for photos. To me, photos make the best decorations and gifts. I have a blank wall I have been looking to fill in my hallway, so I got busy making a board to display some photos! Here is how it turned out…
I am so thankful for my crazy family. I decided the word ‘thankful’ would be perfect for this board. My baby girl is in the middle of potty training right now… So, this can also serve as a reminder that I AM thankful for these times 😉
I have done all the hard work for you! I made all of the letters into free printables for you to print at home. You just click on each of the links below to take you to the printables. A new browser window will pop up and you can just click print from your browser bar. I printed mine on cream thin cardstock. White works great too. You can even do photo paper if you are feeling really fancy.
While those were printing, I started on my wood board.
I used a 1×8′ pine board from the hardware store. You can get a 6′ piece for $7 and cut it in half for 2 of these boards. CHEAP!
The hardware store will also cut these for you if you need them to. A simple hand saw will do the trick easy too!
I stained the entire board with my new VERY FAVORITE stain color from Rust-Oleum. You should get used to seeing this stain, because I will be putting it on LOTS. Love it.

While that was drying, I cut my letters out.
After the board dried, I used bronze nail heads like these to attach the letters to the board. You can find these at the hardware store as well. I push them into the wood a bit with my hand, and use a hammer to tap the rest in.
Now for the clips! I found these cuties at Michael’s.
They come with red rubber on each end, which is super cute but didn’t go with my stuff so I peeled it off of each one. Then, I used Gorilla Glue Super Glue Gel to attach each clip. You only need a small drop. And, hold the clip in place for about 30 seconds to allow it to hold.
Finally, I drilled two holes above the H and U and used thick twine from Hobby Lobby to run a knot through the front of each hole to hold it up. I used a hook on the wall to hang it from, put some pics of my cuties on it and I was done.
Simple project. Under $10.
These also make a great gift for family and friends without breaking the bank!
Here are a few more shots!
I hope you like it!
Let me know if you have any questions at all! Thanks so much for stopping by.
I would LOVE for you to share this board and pin it with your peeps!
Also stay tuned… We have a really fun announcement to make on Wednesday! Can’t wait to share it with you guys! 🙂
