actually I did mine on a mirror. I took a full length mirror and put on some pealable stickers (this way I could change out the stickers as she got older). Then I measured about 16 inches off the ground to hang the mirror, and marked the inches from the ground on the mirror and on up. Ex. the mirror is 16 inches off the ground, so I marked 17 inches as the first inch, and on up. I made dots with a magic marker first so I knew were each inch/half inch was, and painted the numbers and dashes on from there. I turned out beautiful.
Also another way to do this (my aunt did this for her kids) was to take a fabric tape measure and sew it onto a piece of fabric that she liked. Good luck.
