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