Looking for a unique and meaningful way to keep track of your family's birthdays? Why not try making your own family birthday board? This fun and personalized DIY project will not only help you stay organized but also add a touch of creativity to your home decor. This creative endeavor not only allows you to showcase your artistic skills but also strengthens the bond between family members as you work together to create something special. Whether you prefer a minimalist look or a vibrant burst of colors, the choice is yours. Allow the paint to dry completely before moving on to the next step.


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

This is a simple craft that doesn’t need a lengthy explanation. If you’d rather watch a quick video tutorial, scroll to the bottom of this post.

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.
