DIY Calendar (as seen on OVM show)

My new years resolution this year? Stay more organized. With work, Ottawa Valley Moms, husbands work schedule and my sons schedule, I always seem to be forgetting something. So I wanted to be creative and make an easy DIY calendar that would help me keep track on my daily tasks. I decided to take a look at Pinterest for some good ideas. I wanted to create something that I could incorporate in my home decor.

I came across a great project – a DIY calendar, that looked great, was fairly simple to create and would keep me organized in the end.

What You Will Need

  • Frame with at least 8 pictures (I purchased mine at Walmart)
  • Scrap Booking Paper
  • Stickers of Letters in Different Fonts
  • Scissors

What To Do

  • Pick out 8 different pieces of cardstock paper that you will use as your background in each picture.  Make sure they match, as these will be the background pictures for your calendar.

  • Measure the cardstock using the glass in the frame.
  • Cut out the individual pieces of cardstock.
  • Insert cardstock in to frame, close.

  • Turn over Frame.
  • Add letters to outside of the frame.  Include; This Week, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
  • Use a dry erase marker to write your tasks for the week.

This craft didn’t take more than 45 minutes.  You can customize it as you want, and change the theme any time you want.  You can also get help with your project if you have older children.  I can’t wait to use this and stay more organized for 2013!

You can see this DIY project in the latest episode of the Ottawa Valley Moms Show!

    Hi ladies, I watched the OVM show for the first time (Episode 3). Great job! I loved the craft idea. I'm looking forward to seeing more!

    Cute idea. I have had a large frame (same concept) hanging in my kitchen for the past year which I use as a weekly Menu board to keep our family dinners on track. All you need is a dry erase marker for writing and you are good to go. Tip - put the days of the week on the inside of the glass; it leaves a little more room for writing and you don't risk ruining the static lettering (i.e days of the week) any time you wipe the dry erase marker off of the glass.
