When we get a significant snow fall here we usually eyeball how much snow has fallen by looking on our deck rails.
Not anymore! I created a fun way to “measure” our snowfalls from now on. The best part it’s extremely easy, customizable and makes a cute gift as well!
Plus I had leftover wood stakes from making my adorable snowmen!

I used my miter saw to cut a few wood stakes down into the size I wanted as my measurement pieces.
I used black exterior craft paint and painted them front and back ( At first I painted them white but then I figured you wouldn’t see them in the snow)
Using my Cricut Joy I created a few sayings to size and cut them out on white permanent vinyl. I made the file public so you could use them too if you wanted.
I transferred them onto each wood piece and screwed them to one full wood stake from the back.
I also wanted to dress it up a little more so I added a few snowflakes with hot glue. You could embellish this anyway you wanted that what makes it so easy!
Now I can’t wait for us to get some snow so I can see it in action!
What would you use as your “measurements”?
