You guys!! I just discovered an easy letter board hack and I have to share it with you all because I’m basically geeking out over it. Ok so last Friday I was playing around with my letter board and I started thinking about how cool it would be if this thing would stand up on its own. Of course it works really well if you’re holding it for a cute photo, but otherwise I don’t really use mine because it needs to be propped up on something or laid flat. Anyway, I started brainstorming a few ways I could make this darn thing stand up on its own and then it hit me: use the back stand of an old photo frame!
I looked around the house and found an old cheapie photo frame. At first I wanted to remove the back stand, but I knew that was would be tricky with the way it’s screwed in. So I simply removed the entire back piece and hot glued it directly to the back of the letter board. EASY PEASY.
I made sure to put the piece low enough that it would hold the letter board up straight. You can play around with the positioning to get it just right–it will depend on how long your stand is!
BOOM. That’s it. This literally took maybe three minutes from start to finish. And the best part is it didn’t cost me any money and now I can use this little letter board wherever I want around the house.
I really haven’t used my letter board for much other than a few fun photos with the kids (these are great for the first day of school!) but I feel like I’ll be able to use it SO much more now that it has this little stand. I can put Bible verses on there, our weekly menu, inspirational quotes, or just whatever strikes my fancy and it can go anywhere I want it around the house.
I am SO excited about this easy letter board hack and I hope it helps you get more use out of your letterboard too! Also be sure to check out this post where I shared 5 ways to use a letter board in your home.
