Gift Idea: Grandma Board


A couple months ago I shared how to make these grandma boards at a craft night I co-hosted in AZ.  A grandma board would make the perfect gift for Christmas. They are SO simple to make and everyone loved making them! They are perfect for all the grandparents in your life.

Let’s get started shall we…

{ Grandma Board }

Supplies Nedded:

  • Wooden Board (I found these pre-finished boards from hobby lobby-score!)
  • Grandkids Vinyl
  • Clothes Pins
  • Paint and brush
  • Glue
  • Embellishments

 1. Take your pre-finished board or paint it and allow to dry.

2. Cut out the grand kids vinyl.  Then remove the vinyl and place on the board. You could also use a stencil for this.


3. Push vinyl down and remove transfer tape.

4. Paint clothespins and allow to dry. Once they are dry you can embellish these with paper, buttons, ribbon, etc.


5. Glue clothespins to boards.


Hang up your pictures and you have the perfect grandma gift!! They will love these… trust me!


These are the grandma blocks I made last year. You can find the tutorial here.

SO have you already started your grandma gifts?!
