DIY Non-Traditional Framing For Your Genealogy Wall Chart

DIY Non-Traditional Framing For Your Genealogy Wall Chart

We love being inspired by our customers and when Kelly over at @magnifyingmotherhood posted this gorgeous picture of her family tree chart we were beyond impressed!

Traditional framing can get expensive (shop the sales!), so DIY non-traditional framing can be a great way to save some money and create an even more custom piece to complement your unique style and space.

How did Kelly create this beautiful display? In her own words:

It was so easy!! I glued it with modge podge onto MDF board and then grabbed clips from Office Depot and hooked them on a nail - simple!!

Note: To save you all some googling, if you're not familiar with it, MDF board stands for medium density fiberboard, and you can get it at pretty much any home improvement store (Lowes, Home Depot, etc.) When I've bought it before, they've cut it to size for me as well, so don't be afraid to ask!

Back to Kelly's setup. Since everyone was also asking about her adorable DIY flower box underneath we'll let you in on her secret. Again in her own words (thank you Instagram comments!)

They were on an old wreath that someone gave me and then it broke. So I ripped off the flowers (they are made of thin wood pedals) and glued them into the wood box. All about repurposing right?

Amen to that! Ready to create your own custom family tree so you can get framing? Choose a starting template here.
