Tonight’s post is a bit personal, but there is some artsy and DIY stuff in here you will hopefully enjoy! I haven’t posted much this week because I’ve been making birthday presents and planning a surprise party for this sweet girl!
For Brenna’s 20th Birthday, I decided to do something special and get her twenty presents each with a special numerical meaning. Here are some of my favorites!
Three hydrangeas in a vintage glass bottle that I painted three lines on!
Five seagulls on a mixed media canvas. The idea was a letter thrown into the sea and it just morphed into her present. I wrote our song, Coldplay’s Swallowed in the Sea on the paper.
Six post-its wrapped in a scrap from my Grandmother’s shirt and a ribbon!
Eleven orchids on her handmade birthday card. I did my favorite thing of using a brown lunch sack as the card again!
This is the box that holds twelve, a pair of earrings from Argentina that cost 12 pesos
A shirt from Forever 21 that cost fourteen dollars. She works at Delia’s and the #14 is cut up from the logo on a Delia’s bag!
So that’s that! I hope you may have gotten some good birthday present DIY ideas. It’s true what they say, giving is better than giving!
Happy 20th, Brenna!
