"Celebrate" Wall Display

My husband and I gave our Home Office a major redo this past week! Here are the before and after pictures: December 2008 and July 2013
What a difference! You can view more pictures of our redo by going to my Teaching Tiny Treasures By T blog. Check out this cute little scrapbooking wall display that I made to remind us of upcoming important birthdays and anniversaries!
I bought a large, white round wood circle and covered it with a piece of scrapbook paper using mod podge.
Then, I took a piece of bird-shaped chipboard and covered it as well with coordinating scrapbook paper and let it dry.
Next, I took a piece of twine and hot glued it to the wood piece. I positioned and placed the bird on top of the twine.
Then, I added some white flowers and other embellishments to the bird and twine. For the next step, I tried to find a door knob to screw into the wood, however, it would have stuck out through the back of the wood piece. So, instead, I used three white push pins to press into the wood. I hot glued buttons over the tips of the pins and added some green gem embellishments.
Finally, I placed some white metal rings over the pins to display important anniversary and birthdays of people in our family!
Now, I should be plenty ahead in remembering these upcoming dates!
