Birth Stats Scoreboard

One of the rooms I’ve been working on this year is my 2-year old son’s sports room.

I thought it would be fun to make a scoreboard to put up on the wall.


But this isn’t just any scoreboard. This one is a…


Birth Stats Scoreboard


My son was born at 1:02 p.m (so 13:02 military time) on June 14, 2009 (6-14-09).

I thought it would be a fun way to add a personal touch to the décor.

Plus it looks great in the room!


I started out with a large piece of cardboard (39”x 28”), some black butcher paper, Mod Podge, and spray adhesive (not pictured).


I used the spray adhesive to glue the paper to the cardboard, then clipped the corners like so.


Still working with the spray adhesive, I folded the excess paper over and glued it to the back, so I had the entire thing covered.


Since I wanted to be able to wipe off any dust this might collect hanging up on the wall, I covered the entire thing with a coat of Mod Podge to seal and protect it.

After that, I turned to my Silhouette and cut out all the vinyl.

The font for the numbers is Scoreboard.

I got my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl, which is hands-down the best place to get vinyl (both quality and price). It’s my absolute favorite and I don’t like to use any other kind of vinyl.


I tried frosted glass vinyl at first, but then you couldn’t really see the numbers.

(Plus this was a bad picture because it was a stormy day)


So I took the frosted vinyl off and replaced it with contact paper instead.


Much better!


Fun right?

Personally I love it!

It’s always fun when you picture something in your head and it turns out just how you wanted it!!!


  1. love that! and he has the same birthday as my oldest darling boy. mine is '07, though.

  2. What a fun, cute, idea for a little boys room! I love that you used the contact paper so you can see where the numbers would be if they were all lit up. I can't believe that it's made out of cardboard, paper, and vinyl!! Awesome job!

  3. how fun...I love all you can do with the Silhouette
