How to Make a Growth Chart

make_a_growth_chart

The growth chart I made for my family years ago is such a fun thing to have hanging around my home- my kids love it! But if you’re looking for something even easier to throw together, this project is for you! Here is how to make a growth chart using a wooden curtain rod and some washi tape. You’ll spend less than $10 and have it completed in less than a minute- it doesn’t get any easier than this!

***I got my curtain rod at Lowes in the lumber section. They have different lengths and different prices ranging from a few dollars to $15 or so, but the one I got was 6 feet and cost $5. I almost got an 8 foot one because we have some tall genes in the family, but 8′ was just too tall to keep around my house and this growth chart is mostly for the kids, right?

    What a great idea especially since you get to use Washi tape which is one of my favorite things. Pinned :)
