Birthday Tracker

My mother-in-law posted one of these on my timeline a couple months ago saying she wouldn't mind one for her birthday.  So, a few weeks ago, I went out to get some supplies to make her one.

I found this chicken wire frame at JoAnne's and painted it blue.

I also purchased some wooden circles and drilled a hole in the top and bottom of each.  This is where the names/birthdays will go.

Then I forgot to take pictures of most of the next steps.  It's pretty self explanatory however.  I made a simple banner with some scrap material I had and stuck scrapbook letters on it to spell 'Happy Birthday'.  I used jewelry rings to string the circles together and attached them to the frame using some metal loops I found at Lowe's.  Each loop will be for a different month.

Next I made a few flowers out of material.

And here's the finished product!  I gave this to her for her birthday.  It took a couple trips to the craft store and Lowe's throughout this project to get all the pieces and parts right, but in the end I think it turned out cute!
