Hello friends. Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. I enjoyed every minute of our celebrations with our families. We are so blessed. : )
I did my first real Pinterest project. My mom saw this birthday tracker on pinterest and told me that was what she wanted for Christmas. So I did my best to create one for her. I think it turned out pretty good.
I bought the base from Michael's. I added the hooks to the bottom. They were gold which I didn't care for but I decided I could spray paint them along with the base. I used Krylon dual Paint + Primer and it worked beautifully. I cut the letters for "Family Birthdays" using my Cricut and DCWV paper. I wish I had centered it better but I'd already mod podged them and couldn't move them. Poor planning on my part.
The letters for the months of the year, I just stamped on the wood. It didn't come out quite dark enough so I went over them with a Sharpie. I also used the sharpie around the edge of the frame. The tags are circle tags you can get at an office supply store. I think there were 50 in the package. I gave my mom all the extras so she could add anyone else to the bithdays that I might have missed.
I hot glued a flower to the center just to add a little interest.
Not bad for my first attempt. ;-)
I received some super scrapbooking products for Christmas. Hopefully I'll have some nice things to post for you coming up in 2014.
Thanks for taking a look.
