I asked my brother to create a print like this after my daughter was born. He made me a super cute printable that I had hanging in my house for 2 years…. until my son was born. I felt super bad walking past it every time because it didn’t have his birthday on it. (I guess I didn’t feel THAT bad, since I’ve waited almost a year to do something about it… But, hey.)
I didn’t want to ask my brother to make me another one (even though he would’ve done it in a heartbeat) so I decided to do something myself.
I used the same frame that my old one was hanging in, and I used basically the same supplies I had leftover from my DIY Personalized Wall Calendar project. Fabric and paint markers – seriously, that’s it!
I started by making a stencil that I could work with on my computer. I picked fonts that I liked, and laid out the dates and everything else how I wanted it, then printed it out.
The dates I used went in this order (from top to bottom): My husband’s birthday, my birthday, our wedding anniversary, my daughter’s birthday, my son’s birthday
Side note: If you’re looking for fun FREE fonts, be sure to head over to www.dafont.com. They honestly have like… a MILLION to pick from, and most of them are free. Like, 100% free. It’s amazing.
I had to tape a couple pieces together because my design was too big for one piece.
After I had my design printed, I taped it to the back of the glass on my frame.
Then, I traced the design onto the glass with paint markers.
After I had everything just the way I liked it, I took my fabric and wrapped it around the backing of the picture frame. I secured it with hot glue to make sure it would stay tight and not wrinkle.
How cute would this be for a baby gift, anniversary gift or birthday gift?!
