DIY Birthday Chalkboard

If you saw my post on Aria's First Birthday, you will have seen I made a 'birthday chalkboard' as part of the decor! 

I have to admit, I'm really chuffed with how it turned out *pats self on back* so thought I'd share with you how I did it, if you fancy having a go and save yourself £20!

You will need:


Firstly, you might want to jot down a few things you'd like to include on your board. Milestones, favourite things, amount of teeth, weight, height... you get the idea. 


Next, on a scrap piece of paper, roughly draw out how you would like your board to look. I got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and created a board to store all my favourite images. 

Once you're happy with your design, start drawing it out on your foam board using a pencil - unless you're brave enough to go straight in with the pens!

And it's as easy as that!

I loved creating this birthday board and it got a lot of compliments from guests which was a nice little bonus!


I hope you enjoyed this little DIY post, are you planning on making one next birthday celebration???
