Always remember people’s birthdays with this handmade reminder

Do you always forget people’s birthdays? This might help you in your home to always remember people’s birthdays.

I saw this idea over on pinterest and wanted to give it a go. Now this perfect solution proudly hangs in my hallway!

I went to a local timber shop to get some MDF cut with the measurements I gave. I asked for a long rectangle (35x10cm) and lots of round discs about the size of a 10 pence piece. I asked for each one to have 2 little holes at the top and bottom.

I then painted the rectangular shaped piece of wood in a cream Dulux wall paint and painted the discs with nail varnish.

I then found some patterned paper I could use to cut out the letters for ‘Birthdays’ with. The more vintage style the better! I roughly drew the size o the letters I’d need first, beginning with the H in the middle and built the word out, to ensure there was enough space.

I also used one little alphabet sticker for each month and stuck them evenly along the bottom. I bought mini gold hooks (from B&Q) and twisted them into the edge of the wood.

I also bought some flexible wire from B&Q and used wire cutters and made loads of ‘s’ shaped hooks with it. I tried to find already made ‘s’ hooks but couldn’t find the size I wanted available in the UK.

Once all this was done, I was ready to add my chummy’s names using a sharpie marker pen and numbers for the dates.

Now I have no excuse, I will always remember people’s birthdays from now on!
