I had an idea for a birthday party photo op, and as always, my husband executed it perfectly.
I wanted a board with holes cut out so guest could stick their face through. But being the
cheap frugal person I am, I wanted to be able to reuse it for parties in years to come. We used recycled pieces that were laying around to make the board stand alone meaning the only cost was the $15 board.
I drew a few circles a little bigger than my head randomly across the board. Hunter cut them out for me.
Now here is the thing, to make this reusable, I had to find an alternative to painting it. I already had bulletin board paper that was conveniently 4 foot wide and wrapped perfectly. I (Hunter) used a heavy duty stapler to attach the paper to the board at the top and bottom.
I used white chalk to outline the holes for the face and began drawing my figures. The chalk is easy to erase and can be used to sketch your images without the consequence of lines left by a pencil or pen.
After drawing the characters, Hunter and I painted them and then used a sharp knife to cut the paper from the holes.
The board was a huge hit for all of our guests. I loved seeing all the pictures of little ones peeping their heads through posted on social media.
