Birthday chalkboards are creative boards custom-made for different people on their birthdays. They have information on the person whose birthday it is (height, weight, favorite foods, words they can pronounce) , the events that will be happening on that day and even the food that will be served. Currently these boards are popular among babies and are themed differently. Creating a birthday chalkboard is a simple and fun exercise that you can do at home.
The boards are quirky and in first person you feel like the person actually wrote the board themselves, even though babies can't talk. Alternatively, you can get someone to do it for you. Birthday chalkboards are popular among chalkboard lettering artists and we have gathered for you some of the most beautiful chalkboards we know, all written with our chalk markers. Aside from a birthday board you can create an event board, for example a Mother's Day board.
Cedar Markers gives the tools necessary for amazing artists to create, amazing art. Take a look at some of the artwork below for creative and inspiring ideas.
These amazing birthday boards by the great @jtbiggers shows artists that you can pick a theme and work around it to create an awesome chalk board. The artist has combined sans-serif and script fonts which is something you can do too.
An excellent way to customize a board is to add cute little images at the corners or edges so that they don't take away from the lettering. These boards are very personal but you can customize them for different birthdays.
Brady Gordon Breeder's first birthday board seems to have been a present for the birthday boy. There are three main sections to the board. You can try and make your own board by sectioning out the board and fitting in everything you want in the different sections.
We can't get enough of Jenny's birthday boards. Especially because they're awesome, for one. Two, they are never the same or even similar. Three, we love birthdays! Superman and Spider-man are very cleverly and subtly added to the middle of the board and it is surprisingly not distracting. The words have to stand out and you don't want to overpower them with the images. This would make for an awesome birthday DIY for your kid or even a friend. Adults love chalk lettering too.
And last but not least from Jenny, 'Sebastian's world' is one of the more simple birthday boards that Jenny has done (Simple, but full of details and amazing drawings). It is crisp and clean and the chalkboard's red edge compliments the colors she has used for the lettering.
How about an amazing Indian themed birthday board by @raechelfratcreations? Well, we're in. The artist has cleverly sectioned out the entire board into squares and rectangles for definition. The organization of the artist makes it easy to go through the board without feeling like there's too much information on there.
'You are my today and all of my tomorrows.' This artwork in a wonderful array of different colors using chalk markers and chalk. Very clean design and not too crowded making the message get across clearly. We'll call this a love board.
Namaste Mother's Day board. This one by the lovely @lisaschmidt13 is a simple but impactful board. It's clever how she has written the word, 'Namaste, mama.' The words are in script and the elongated words open into flowers for emphasis. We think a calming yoga class is a great way to treat your mama on Mother's Day too.
We hope you are inspired by all these awesome and amazing ideas that we love.
