Are you ready to see MY project for this event?!!!  

It is the easiest project in the world, is super inexpensive to make, and will usher Spring into your home!

 We’ve all been eagerly awaiting Spring, and I am overjoyed that it’s finally arrived.  To celebrate, I want to bring some spring indoors, while I’m waiting for my yard to green up.  I’ve had an antique style school chart hanging in my entryway for several years, so I decided it was time to swap it out for some new school charts that are perfect for Spring.

It’s THE simplest project in the world, and the only supplies needed are:

1.  bird eggs printables (6 available free HERE) – (save images to your computer)

2.  thin wood scraps or 12″ wooden rulers (I used paint stir sticks)

3.  wood stain

4.  hot glue gun

5.  cotton twill tape or ribbon


1.  Get copies made – I wanted my school charts as large as possible – without spending a fortune, so I had them printed as ledger size pages (17″x11″) at Staples for about $1.20 each (there are 6 printables to choose from here).

3.  Hot glue wood strips to top and bottom of each print, then glue twill tape on each side of the top.

How easy is that?!!  Aside from the time it takes to get the prints made, this is a 5 minute project!

I have many more antique book pages, and more than 50 antique maps that would also make wonderful school charts.  You’ll find them all HERE.
