Hello wonderful readers! I am so excited about this simple DIY Chore Chart I have to share with you today! I don’t know about you, but when we have a new year to start over I always feel rejuvenated and ready to tackle anything!! I thought I would share how I made this chore chart for my kids, that they actually look forward to using every morning!
I am so happy with how this project turned out!! The best part of it was that it was super simple!! Here’s the supply list of all the products I used:
- Silhouette Black Vinyl
- Silhouette Magnet Paper
- Silhouette Black Sketch Pen
- Off White, Purple, Burgandy and Green Recollections cardstock
- Washi tape
- White, Flat Bottle Caps (The Paper Studio)
- Glossy Accents (glue)
- 36×24 Metal Sheet (Lowe’s)
This is what my finished project looks like and I just LOVE it!!
I made a section for each one of my boys. At the top of the board I have a magnet to hang up important papers and homework. I used black washi tape to divide the sections between the 3 boys and then grey washi tape to divide the ‘To Do’ and ‘Done’ sections for each of them.
For their names, what I did was, cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo on the Magnet paper and the colored cardstock. I bought the adhesive backed magnet paper so that I could easily stick the cardstock onto the magnet. I used cardstock that was their favorite color, to make it even more fun for them.
The bottle caps on the top part of the section are for the chores and things they need to do in the morning before school and the ones on the bottom are for night time. I’m going to add more on the bottom for the night time routine and chores, but I wanted to mainly get them started out with the morning chores.
Each of them got 10 of the bottle caps. I used my silhouette cameo to write out the chore with the black sketch pen. Then I cut out the little chore icon and used the glossy accents to glue it down in place. Once I got it in place I filled the whole bottle cap with the glossy accents. It dries clear and looks awesome!!
I also cut out 1″ circles to put on the back of the bottle caps for them to stick to the metal board I had my husband screw into a wall in our kitchen.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying the new year so far!! I’ll see you next month!
