How to make a gorgeous and easy family birthday board


Make a gorgeous and easy family birthday board to keep track of everyone’s birthdays. This easy craft would be a wonderful gift for grandparents!



  • Wooden Birthday Board Calendar Kit
  • Craft Paint
  • Ribbon, optional

This is a simple craft that doesn’t need a lengthy explanation.

Step 1: Paint the board. I did a light whitewash finish. I mixed equal parts water and matte white paint and lightly brushed it over the wood. I left the wooden circles as-is.

Step 2: Use a Silhouette or Cricut machine to cut out the words “Family Birthdays” from black adhesive vinyl. The board measures 15.5″ x 4.75″. The font I used is called Simple Game.
Step 3: Use adhesive vinyl or a paint pen to write the name of each family member on one side of the wooden circle and their birth date on the other side. The vinyl takes forever, but you get such a nice, clean result.

Step 4: Attach each wooden circle to the correct month with the metal rings included in the kit. If there is more than one birthday in a given month, link the circles together.
Step 5: Tie the twine that came in the kit to the heart-shaped holes on each corner OR swap it out for some fun ribbon.
