Family Chore Board
Chrissy here to share a chore board with you. I made this board to help my kids keep track of the extra chores they do and earn some extra spending money.
Each flower pin represents one of the kids and each popsicle stick has a chore and money value on it. As they complete a chore, they hang the stick up onto their respective pins. At the end of the week, I will count up how much they earned and pay them. Want to make something similar for your family? Here’s how!
This step is optional. I painted my foam board with gesso because of the paper I used. I wanted the true color of the paper to show.
Brush on Mod Podge onto the board and adhere your paper. I also applied Mod Podge over the top of the paper to seal it.
Cut a length of ribbon to cover the blank edges after your paper had dried. I used the chevron twill.
Apply adhesive to your ribbon. I used my Xyron Create A Sticker. It’s the best for adhering ribbon.
Add some twine to cover any edges and to jazz things up a bit. I used the black baker’s twine. I applied my twine with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.
We can’t have any unsightly edges around the board! I glued down some sheer box pleat trim.
