So, awhile ago, a friend of mine posted on her Facebook page a cute DIY she had created of a "verse of the week" board. Ever since I saw her project, I've wanted to do it myself, and finally decided to visit my local Hobby Lobby and buy the supplies and just.do.it. (Thanks, Nike).
I have a desire to memorize more Scripture, and to have a reminder of God's promises always on my mind and in my heart. This "verse of the week" board does just that, and will be a lovely decoration to our apartment when we get it hung up.
-a chalkboard or whiteboard
-some fancy pens to write with or in my case, stickers, because I can't write straight
-1-2 sheets colored paper
-any other little decorations you wish to add
Let's get this party started:
Start with your board and determine where you want you want it to say "verse of the week". As you can see in the picture above, I found a nifty chalk/cork board (Hobby Lobby for the win, in case you were wondering), and decided that I would put "verse of the week" on the cork part. This is so that I could easily change out my verse by simply erasing the chalkboard at the end of the week.
Make a cutout that will be your background to your "Verse of the Week"
Use your ruler to set some straight lines for your text.
(Also spend way too long doing this)
Use your pens (or stickers for the pretty-handwriting challenged people like me) to write out "Verse of the Week" on the background cutout you made earlier.
Add your cutout to your board, along with any other cute decorations you feel like adding.
Who else loves sunflowers??
Write your first verse up and get to memorizing and storing God's Word away in your heart.
(Note: depending on your chalkboard that you buy, you may need to attach some brackets to the back to make it hang-able).
What are other creative ways you've found to store God's Word in your heart and remind yourself of His promises on a daily basis?
