  • Be honest
  • Give thanks
  • Help others
  • Stay positive
  • Love all
  • Dream big
  • Keep promises
  • Have fun
  • Laugh often

Decoratively Present Your Rules
Once you’ve determined your rules, showcase them for all to see in one of five creative ways:

  1. On a Ladder: Write, stamp or stencil each rule onto a different piece of scrapbook paper, or print the words on decorative paper. Tie your rules to the rungs of a repurposed ladder and they’ll truly stand out
  2. In Frames: Place each rule in a frame or shadow box, and then set your ideals on a mantel, entryway table or arrange them on a wall
  3. On a Board: Paint your rules onto a charming piece of repurposed material, like rustic wood. Paint a few coats of chalkboard paint on wood and write each word or phrase in a different style, size or chalk color for variation. To signify the permanence of your principles, spray a clear coat (as a sealant) atop your chalkboard
  4. As a Collage: From a dictionary or magazine, cut out the words for your family’s rules and decoupage them onto a thick stock of paper, forming a collage. When framed, your decorative family rules can make a great gift for nearly any occasion
  5. On a Wall: Stencil your rules onto a wall with purchased stencils from your local craft store. You can also find a quote that speaks to your family’s ideals and use it in place of listed rules. Try this project in an entryway, dining room or living room as a welcoming reminder of what your home stands for
