I got the idea from Pinterest. The original blog post for this idea is here: Baby Stats Subway Art.
This is one of those projects that I REALLY wanted to do, and even had it on my own priority list of projects. When a particular challenge came up, I knew it was time to get these baby stats wall art projects done for my kids.
The toughest part of this project was getting the power-point print to fit on the piece of wood I purchased. Fortunately for you I have attached the power point file, links to the types of font I used, and some tips throughout the step-by-step process I took to create these cool stats-art for your own children.
If you’ve got a handle on power point, and your computer savy enough to download new fonts, hopefully this piece of art work will be a cake-walk for you and all you have to do is type in your child’s birth stats and enter the info.
If you don’t know power point well, I’ve tried to make the instructable as clear and simple as possible, BUT, you may run into a snag or two where I assumed that the person reading this knows how to use power point, “enough to get by.”
Either way, I hope you can use this instructable to get your own baby’s birth statistics done.
Step 1: Gather Materials, Tools & Equipment
8” x 10” wood piece; I purchased the one shown at Jo-Ann’s, but you can make your own if you have the equipment
OR an 8-1/2” x 11” piece of wood
(Optional) spray paint primer
white spray paint
white cardstock paper
acrylic sealer spray
Tools & Equipment Needed:
newspaper or other paper to cover your work surface
computer with Microsoft Power Point program
color printer – I have an ink jet
Sponge Brush for mod podge
Flat scraping tool (I found the one shown in my husband’s tool box – I think it’s for ice on the windshield)
