DIY Thankful Photo Board with Free Printables!

Hey friends!

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…

Free Printable Thankful Photo Board

So fun!

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.

Vintage Metal Clips

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!

    Is there any chance you’d be willing to make this a little smaller and email it to me? I want to put it on chipboard that i have and I’ve cut them too small.. I’d be sooo so grateful! Please let me know. Thanks!

    I found a font that I think is very close to the one she used. It is call Archistico. Thought that might be helpful for some of you. 🙂

    If only we could find those clips. I don’t think they make them anymore

    • jennifer on October 4, 2015 at 9:19 am

      you can find them on Amazon by searching 7 gypsie clips. That is where I am ordering mine.

  5. Kristy Guerrero Frazier on February 15, 2014 at 12:43 pm

    Do you have a link for the rest of the alphabet so the sign can say different inspirational words?

  6. Jennifer on January 14, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    How do you print out the letters on big enough sheets of paper? Do you have to use a special printer? My printer only prints out 8 1/2 by 11 sheets of paper.

  7. Kristen on January 9, 2014 at 9:51 am

    I made one for a Christmas gift

    • jessica on September 6, 2015 at 2:26 pm

      Where did you get these letters?!

      • jennifer on October 4, 2015 at 9:17 am

        If you go to dafont.com and search for “Archistico” you will find a font similar to this.

    • Crystal on December 16, 2015 at 10:44 am

      How did you get the black chalkboard background and the different letters together with the background for your sign? Thanks

    This was before the pictures were added.

  10. Holly on December 22, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    What font did you use for these letters? I want to match some numbers to the letters if possible.
    Thanks.

  11. Jackie Saling on December 22, 2013 at 6:27 pm

        • jennifer on October 4, 2015 at 9:16 am

          If you go to dafont.com and search for the font called “Archistico” it is similar to the one used here.

  13. Cheyenne Morris on December 22, 2013 at 4:28 pm

  15. Sheri on December 7, 2013 at 9:50 am

    Unfortunately I don’t have a Cricut. Anyone come up with a different way to do the letters? I want to do a board that says ‘Love’ for my newly wed daughter-in-law with some of their wedding pictures attached.

  16. Donna Morgan Shockey on November 12, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Please, please share with us how you made these letters. Thanks!

  17. Ashlee on November 12, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    Do you have the other letters somewhere on your blog? I can not find them! Thanks

  18. Melissa DeFrancesco on November 6, 2013 at 8:12 am

    Thanks so much for all the wonderful ideas! Anyway we can get additional letter to download?

  19. Laura Pearce on October 23, 2013 at 3:29 pm

  20. Amanda Isham on October 22, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    also I can’t find the wood stain you used…do you know of another color name that would match the Carrington color?
