I have been eying running bib holders on pinterest. I thought about purchasing one, but then realized I probably have all the necessary items to make my own. So, I got to work making one. I had a few requirements: I wanted it to hold both bibs & medals, I wanted it to say Celebrate Every Mile, I wanted to be able to write on it & I didn't want it to be too large.
|Then, I used chalkboard paint for my final paint layer. After it dried, I sanded it, especially along the edges to roughen it.|
|Using the font that came with the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge, I used my cricut machine to cut vinyl letters.|
|To hang the display on the wall I nailed a picture frame bracket to the back.|
|It was important to me to be able to list pr's, runs to look forward to or inspirational quotes on the board. This is my first experience using chalkboard paint & a chalk pen. They seem to be working fine.|
|I don't have many medals to hang, but that will change.|
|I'm pleased with the result. It's not perfect, but it accomplishes all the things I want it to. Most importantly, it hangs within eyesight of my computer to remind me to get off my duff and run.|
