Gift Idea: Grandma Board


A couple months ago I shared how to make these grandma boards at a craft night I co-hosted in AZ. A grandma board would make the perfect gift for Christmas. They are SO simple to make and everyone loved making them! They are perfect for all the grandparents in your life.

Let’s get started shall we…

{ Grandma Board }

Supplies Nedded:

  • Wooden Board (I found these pre-finished boards from hobby lobby-score!)
  • Grandkids Vinyl
  • Clothes Pins
  • Paint and brush
  • Glue
  • Embellishments

 1. Take your pre-finished board or paint it and allow to dry.

2. Cut out the grand kids vinyl. Then remove the vinyl and place on the board. You could also use a stencil for this.


3. Push vinyl down and remove transfer tape.

4. Paint clothespins and allow to dry. Once they are dry you can embellish these with paper, buttons, ribbon, etc.


5. Glue clothespins to boards.



Hang up your pictures and you have the perfect grandma gift!! They will love these… trust me!


These are the grandma blocks I made last year. You can find the tutorial here.

SO have you already started your grandma gifts?!

    1. Thanks girl! I haven’t seen one… but I’m sure someone would be on etsy. If you buy the pre-painted boards at hobby lobby it wouldn’t take you as long. Good luck! This is a crazy time of year!

  1. LOVE these ideas!!! I recently ordered a CAMEO (my xmas gift) and are starting to think about my first projects – I am so excited for it to come in the mail:)

  2. Very cute Grandma board! I’m going to have to make one of these. I became a grandma for the first time 6 weeks ago and # 2 is due on the 23rd of December ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

  3. I absolutely looove the grandma board. The blocks too! Grandparents always love the thoughtful gifts best, and sometimes I run out of inspiration for what to do. I know you’re super popular {understandably so – you have a FABulous blog} and I’m sure you’re really busy, but I would be so unbelievably honored if you would share this at my party if you get the time.

  4. These are so cute. I especially love the blocks! My mom would love these. Thanks for the tips. Great job!

  5. This is SO adorable and I know two Grandmas that are going to be getting these for christmas this year! Im your newest follower and it would bless my socks off if youd stop by this newbies blog:) thanks so much,Deidre~
