I pinned this picture on Pinterest a long LONG time ago. I finally took the time to make my version when I realized that the pin didn't lead to the actual post. (If you have the original source please share it with me so that I can give proper credit)
I wanted to make something for Mother's Day for both my mother and mother-in-law that my children can give them. I thought that this was perfect.
I started our with a piece of wood I had handy. Mine happened to be a piece of laminate and I cut it into two pieces.
You will want to stain or paint your wood before the next step.
I then cut out the word Grandkids in two different fonts using some adhesive vinyl and my cricut. You can also use stickers if you do not have a cricut or similar cutting machine.
Adhere the stickers to the pieces of wood.
Now choose your paint color and start painting. You are going to paint over the entire piece of wood (don't forget the sides)
Once the paint is dry remove the stickers and using a hot glue gun adhere the correct number of clothespin to the bottom of the sign. I used mini clothespins but you could also use large clothespin and paint them to match. Add your wallet sized pictures and a hook to the back for hanging the sign and you are finished.
* The pictures above were pictures that I had on hand in my desk drawer, I will be getting new pictures of each grandkid to put on the actual sign. I can't help but laugh that 5 of the kids are my mom's grandkids but the handsome man on the right is my cousin. Makes me think that this would be a cute cousin sign. Hmm, might need to make one for my house!
