Looking For A Teachers Gift?

5 Materials
1 Hour

I come up with a teacher's gift every year and this year was no different. Check out this cute idea!

Supplies you need:

3 rulers - wooden are best




Hot glue

I’ll be showing you how to make a chalkboard sign and whiteboard. My ruler had a hole in it so I wanted to make them all match.

Stack two rulers on top of each other in opposite directions so we can drill matching holes matching on both sides. This will become the hanger.

I left two of the rulers at their full length and the third one I cut to 5 inches.

Since I purchased these rulers at the Dollar Tree, they are not 100% wood. The black part is plastic so I taped the edge before I cut it so it wouldn't crack or break.

Then I cut on the edge of the tape with my chop-saw.

I then cut the other ruler to match.

Then I laid them on top of the chalkboard.

I then traced the two sides so I could cut the chalkboard.

Then I hot glued the rulers down to the chalkboard making my rectangle.

Once it was glued down, I went back with the drill and drilled through the chalkboard again where the two holes were.

The back of the chalkboard is a whiteboard.

Add some twine through the holes to hang it.

Here is my chalkboard ruler frame.

Now I can vinyl the teacher's name on one side and it can be used as a name sign for the teacher's classroom or I can leave it without their name so they can write whatever they want.

I hope you like this cute gift. Follow me on my YouTube channel Gilbert Marketplace for more DIYs.
