I’m excited to share my August Michaels Makers project with you today. This BACK TO SCHOOL DIY YARDSTICK SCHOOLWORK + ART BOARD was super easy to make, and is ready to hold all my kids’ school projects! I’m going to love having a place to hang all of their masterpieces.
Check out Michaels’ Back to School Pinterest Board to find fun and creative project ideas to kick the year off right!
You will need:
1 thin 6×36 inch board
6 yardsticks (I purchased mine at Michaels)
Jumbo Clothes Pins (from Michaels)
Metal Art Clamps (I purchased mine at Michaels)
Flat Phillips 4 x 1/2 screws
2 Wall Hanging Hooks
Hot Glue gun
Line your first yardstick up with the top of your board (making sure it’s even and flush with the edge) and screw the yardstick onto the board on both ends (about 4 inches in from the edge).
Repeat step one with all yardsticks, lining each yardstick up directly underneath the other as shown in the photo, until your board is completely covered.
Nail two wall hanging hooks to the back of your board as shown above.
Using a hot glue gun (I used my industrial glue gun because it gets extremely hot and creates a secure bond), carefully glue your clothes pins and metal hooks onto your yardstick board, spacing them apart as desired.
Hang on the wall and viola! You are now ready to display all your kids fun school projects!
