Great Gift Idea for Growing Families

This year for Christmas I really struggled what to get for family members who don't really NEED anything {a wonderful problem!} and saw this growth chart on pinterest and knew that it was the perfect gift! 

I thought these were simple, attractive, and surprisingly easy to make. I think these are also a perfect gift for military families who move frequently!! 

{Hung with a simple piece of twine}

I added a simple single letter monogram using a stencil I made with my Silhouette machine. Using a measuring tape, I also added measurements every 6 inches {up to 6 1/2 feet in case the kids really spout!}

To mark growth, I included key tags on tiny clothes pins.
{key tags mark date/age information}
{I plan on adding tags every few months for years to come!}
{I made simple bags out of a scrap bed sheet to store the key tags, I used a black pen to write "grow"}

{I added a personalized label for each box)
{each growth chart set & tags fit nicely boxed!}
{Of course, I made one for our house, too}
