Washi Tape Growth Chart

Where are you going, my little one? They grow up before your eyes. Mark their progress on this portable growth chart -- one of our favorite washi tape projects designed exclusively for kids. Use washi tape in your child's favorite colors and patterns for an extra special touch!

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Prep Surface: Carefully pull the slats off of the pallets. You will need at least five. Line the slats up end-to-end, front-side down. Then, glue the ends of the slats together with wood glue. For extra holding power, cut pieces of jumbo craft sticks and glue over the glued ends. Let the glue set. Using the foam roller, paint the growth chart with Snow White and let the paint dry.

    Mark Measurements: Use the yardstick to measure and mark five 12" increments. Cut 1" pieces of the same color of washi tape. Cut points on each end, and then stick the pieces of tape at each 12" increment. Use the ruler to measure and mark 1" increments between the 12" marks. Cut 1 inch pieces of washi tape. Cut points on each end, and then stick the tape down on the marked 1" increments. See the photo for help. Use the stencil to outline numbers from one to five on the 12" marks. Color them in with the markers. Decorate as you’'d like. We wrote ‘Watch me Grow Up’ at the top of the chart and put more washi tape under that area because in our opinion you can never have too much washi tape.

    Finish: Brush decoupage medium onto entire growth chart using the foam brush. When brushing over the tape, brush from the point to the flat end so the tape does not come up. Let it dry. If placing growth chart against a wall with a baseboard, first put the growth chart on the floor, then cut off part of the bottom piece.
