This peg board keeps things tidy, with a place for each family member to hang their things. Even little ones who can’t read will know which peg is theirs!
- Wooden board (this one was pre-drilled with 5 holes)
- Wooden pegs
- Ceramic tiles
- Mod Podge
- Acrylic paint (black)
- Wooden letters for photo shoot (or you can cut them from poster board)
- Hardware for hanging board
Take a photo of each family member holding a different wooden letter, spelling out your last name. (Or you can cut the letters yourself from white poster board). Then change the photos to black and white and cropped them to fit the ceramic tiles (these are 4×4). You can find similar tiles at a home improvement store… check out these tiles from Lowe’s that are only .16 apiece!
Adhere the photos with Mod Podge to the ceramic coaster tiles. When adhering photos to tiles, put a thin layer of Mod Podge on the tile. Then center the photo on the tile. Lay a paper towel over the photo, and rub firmly with your thumb, from the middle to the outer edges. This prevents bubbles while keeping your photo free of fingerprints and smudges. Once it’s dry, add another thin coat of Mod Podge to seal your photo.
Paint the board and pegs black and let dry. Then sand the edges with sandpaper to give it a distressed look. Insert pegs, using wood glue for durability. Use a strong glue (such as Gorilla Glue) to adhere tiles over pegs.
