May I tell you a secret?
The best way for a family to remember to have Family Home Evening-- is to have a constant reminder on the wall to help everyone remember that Monday night is Family Home Evening night.A board is a great reminder to start and then soon it becomes habit and everyone remembers that Monday night is for the family.
Growing up in my family we had a "board" made of two paper plates. It did the trick...but I wanted to make something a little more...um...nice looking.
Thus my next project...
1. Small Magnet Framed Board, unpainted. I bought mine from Roberts.
2. Alphabet Rub-On Book
4. Clear Rocks
6. Pictures of your family printed out. One 4 x 6 and little pictures of each family member.
These rub-on books are So great to add fun fonts with.
For my FHE Board I wrote out:
After the board was prepared I made the picture magnets.
You've probably seen these around it's a really cute/quick way to make this FHE board personal.
Okay, Now we're ready to Paint-- my favorite.
After I painted my board red I thought the color was too flat. I like lots of colors and blended shades works the best. So real lightly on my sponge brush I added two other colors (a light purpleish-red and a light blue) and went down the board in light streaks to add more colors and dimensions.
Now for all you people out there with cricut machines and silhouette machines this would be a great time to use it to write out "Family Home Evening".
I do not own either of these machines.
But I wanted "Family Home Evening" to look nice and straight-- So I printed this out in the front "Honey Script".
