I have been wanting to make myself one of these wall hangings for quite awhile now, and finally decided that it was time when I missed wishing a family member happy birthday. I've given a brief outline on how I did my project, as well as the supplies I used, down below.
Project Assembly Notes
I used a piece of 1x6 white pine cut down to 21" length for the sign itself, sanded and stained it using a weathered grey. I let that sit overnight and then applied my vinyl (I contemplated doing it as a stencil but I wanted to hurry and get it finished so decided on vinyl). Next I added 12 eye hooks to the bottom edge of the sign to attach the hanging circles to. I then cut my circles at 1.5" using lightweight chipboard that I picked up from Michael's in the loose paper section....the size of your circles will depend on the length that you make your sign....if you make a shorter sign you will want to use smaller circles so that they don't overlap when hanging. After I had all of my chipboard circles cut I went to work typing out all of the names and attached them to 1.5" circles and had the Cricut write the names on cardstock, I also cut some blank circles out of the same cardstock for the reverse sides....I hand wrote the dates on the reverse. I glued the cardstock circles to the chipboard circles and then used my leather punch to punch holes at the top and bottom of each completed circle. And then the tedious part of attaching it all together using jump rings!

Just did this today…. I saw it on Pinterest and was going to copy it but you provided the SVG which was amazing. Thank you!
I used HTV on my wood which makes is super easy as I often times have issue with vinyl sticking to my wood.
Absolutely love this project. Thank you so much for the SVG file. This will make beautiful Christmas gifts.
Thank you Natosha! And you are very welcome.
I don’t see the months included in the SVG, is that correct?
Hi Stacie. The months are there but they are white so you probably need to change the color in order for them to show up.
Is the link no longer downloadable?
Hi Marissa. The link is there, it is in the table right above the share icons. I just tested the link and it is working for me.
I figured it out. Sorry for bothering you. Love the file.
Glad you were able to figure it out Sandra. ?
What did you use to cut holes in the chipboard? Thank you!
I used a leather punch that I picked up from Michael’s.
