I made these as Christmas presents for two family members. They were a fun build and each recipient was pleased.

One is made to resemble merchandise from a popular soft drink as this family member collects such things. Bottle shapes represent each month and then bottle caps can be added for each birthday. “S” hooks connect the bottle caps.

The second one was made for a seamstress. I cut large spools in half for the months of the year, and used smaller spools for each birthday. Twine connects each piece and a combination of stain and natural finish provides for a more rustic look.

Thanks for looking!
