- Plexiglass sheet in desired size
- Large soft-bristled paintbrush
- Holographic glitter in desired color
- Vinyl alphabet stickers
- Masking tape/washi tape
- Colored paper or cardstock
- Laminating pouches
- Plastic tablecloth
- Plastic cup or bowl
- Stir stick
Before getting started on your DIY household chores list, protect your work surface with a plastic tablecloth for easy cleanup. In a plastic dish, mix 1 tablespoon of Tack-It Over & Over with 1 tablespoon of water and use a stir stick to thoroughly mix.
Place your plexiglass panel on your work surface and make sure it’s clean and free from dust and prints. Use a large soft-bristled brush to brush the Tack-It/water mixture over the entire panel. Need more? Mix up the extra amount that you need using a 1:1 ratio. Let it dry completely; it should feel tacky to the touch when dry.
Once the plexiglass is dry and has a nice tacky texture, sprinkle glitter over the tacky surface of your soon-to-be sparkling household chores list.
Use your hand to press and smooth the glitter onto the tacky surface of the plexiglass. You can save any remaining glitter for future use!
Once you’ve smoothed glitter over the tacky side, flip the plexiglass panel over so the slick surface is now on top. It’s time to turn your glittered plexiglass into a proper household chores list!
Use a ruler and tape to help divide the panel into even sections – one section per name. Apply your vinyl stickers onto the panel, spelling out each person’s name.
To make the chore cards for your household chores list, print each chore onto colored paper and laminate. You can use non-heated laminating pouches or a heated laminator if you have one. Cut out each chore so it becomes its own card.
To tack the chore cards onto your household chores list, you can either make your own glue dots with Tack-It Over & Over and use them to tack up and change around the cards, or you can apply and smooth Tack-It Over & Over directly onto the backs of the laminated cards. Once dry, you can tack them up on the plexiglass panel and move them around each week!
And now you have a sparkly household chores list that shines with organization and responsibility … or at least some color and creativity. The rest is up to your crew! What other ways are you using the Tack-It Method to create cool stuff? Tag us on social @aleenesdiy and share with us!
