My kids are in mode! The toy catalogs are in and higlighted to the max! I need to corral all of this wish listing. So I came up with this idea so they have a place where they can write down exactly what they want. When the phone calls come in asking what the kids want for Christmas, I will be prepared.
Using kraft wrapping paper I bought at Ollie’s sometime this summer, I freehand drew the shape I liked and cut. Then I did the lettering the same way I did it for the chalkboard project. The fonts I used are La Chatte a Maman (on the left) and King’s Last Quest. I chose the font size based on what would fit on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. I used white chalk to color the back of the sheet, traced the letters and followed the pattern with gold and copper sharpies. I decided to tape a seperate sheet of paper so I can reused the kraft paper part every year. Each list is 30″ x 17″ and I stuck it to the wall with ticky tac (love this stuff). This definitely is a low budget project, but I really like the idea. I know some of you out there can take it to the next level! I’d love to see what you come up with!
