I’m sure if everyone isn’t in school already it is rapidly approaching! So first and foremost I would like to wish everyone a successful school year! What I’m coming to you all today with I’m sure everyone could use.. a D.I.Y Calender! It’s super easy to make and I’m going to show you!
The things you’ll need:
- A Empty Frame (I got mine from Hobby Lobby)
- 35 Paint swatches from your local hardware store of your favorite colors (Home Depot, Lowes, etc.)
- Glue or tape (which ever you prefer. I used Glue)
- Command stripes ( The hooks)
- and dry erase markers
First, what your going to do is open your frame and flip the provided sample picture over on the white side. (Most frames come with a “sample” photo with a blank side) So flip that.
Secondly take your 35 paint swatches and line them up accordingly (horizontal and vertical) now I know you’re wondering why you need 35 swatches and there is only 31 days in the month, well if your month starts on a Wednesday you need extra spaces for the end of the month.
Thirdly you’re going to paste or tape your swatches onto the white paper the frame provided you with and try to line your swatches up evenly to the best of your ability.
and lastly wait for the glue to dry or if you used tape slowly but your frame together and WAHLAH! you have a new dry erase calender!
It’s super easy and it can go along with basically any color scheme you have. I hope you enjoyed it!
