I looked at tens and tens of signs online in order to replicate one I liked, or purchase one on Etsy. However, on a trip to Michael's I decided to create my own original celebration sign. I chose a plain wooden sign with a hook that I later painted with white acrylic paint. I don't have one of those fancy sign making machines, so for the writing, I simply found a free font I liked (Bromello) and tried to visually replicate it using a pencil. Then, I used a black sharpie to trace over the pencil marks.
For the tags, I chose a shimmery, burlap-colored cardstock paper. Next, I went to Flat Icon to choose and download a tag vector for free. Then, I opened Power Point and added the downloaded tag image. After that, I added a text box to insert the name and special occasion. I copy and pasted the tag over and over to create enough images for all the dates we needed to remember. For the names and occasion I used another free font, KG Hard Candy Striped, and for the month and date, I used Bodoni 72 Book. You can download the template I used by clicking on the file below. If you don't have PowerPoint, you can view and edit this file on Google Docs.
To create a loop to hang the tags on the hook, I used a very thin black elastic string that I simply taped to the back of the tags.
Enjoy making this fun project or use it as inspiration for an original creation of your own, and never forget a special occasion again!
