Elmer's Word Play Wall Décor

You've heard of someone having a way with words? Well, repurpose an old board game with some basic craft supplies to create wall art based on that principle. You'll definitely give them something to talk about!

Take some pics of your finished projects, then share on social media: #ACMooreInspired.

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut 16" x 19" piece (or piece that is 1" larger than game board to top and sides and 3"- 4" larger on bottom) of foam board. (Tip: Score lightly first and then press more firmly to cut deeper, with several passes of the knife. Replace blade often.)

    Measure and mark 2” down from top and 3" in from each side. Slightly separate curved ends of one paper clip 1/4". On mark, glue bottom half of paper clip with single loop down, creating hanger loop with longer end of paper clip. Repeat to attach other paper clip hanger.
