I found this inexpensive, easy gift project for anyone on your gift list.. friends, teachers, co-workers. It takes an hour or so and cost about $5.00.
You know those paint chip squares that you get from HD, Lowes or even Walmart. Anytime, I go to these stores and I frequent them quite a bit, I always choose a handful for reasons such as this, or one never knows when I will want to change the paint on a wall.
Here is where I got the idea...over at The Aesthetic Writer. I followed their directions, although I couldn't cut the squares as straight as they did.
I bought a $5.00 11x14 frame at Walmart. Keep in mind, it needs to be large enough to hold a month of numbers. I cut the squares to be about 2x2 size. I then spray painted the cardboard that comes in the frame white, as you can see the board in between the squares.
I taped the squares down, by just taking a little piece of tape rolling it up and sticking it on the back of the square. That allowed me to adjust as necessary.
Neat, easy peasy idea.
