I have decided to make this:
I know I have a calender but I fancied something new, something different so I thought this was a great idea and very pretty depending on what you want your design to be. This is also a recycling project for me can I add!
I had left over pink paint in the shed so set about painting my wood and small wooden hearts I bought from Ebay a week before. I thought they'd be nice and really pretty.
I stuck the hearts on the wood to represent the 12 months of the year, writing the initial of each month on them once safely in place.
After I had stuck the hearts on, I wrote names and dates on the remaining hearts and decorated my board with the word 'Birthday'. As you can see, I had some pen trouble when outlining which I'm a bit disappointed about because it ruins it a bit but never mind.
Using some hooks I got to pop up my net curtains some time ago, I was able to hang my hearts using some eye pins from my jewelry bag. This was really fiddly for me, I like making things like this but I really have to take my time as I'm not blessed in the practical department! Still, I got there in the end and added the finishing touches with some card embellishments.
(Sorry for photo quality, my camera ran out of power and the lighting isn't great for my phone!)
