4 Fun DIY Calendar Ideas

Calendars are very common and used items in all types of homes, regardless of the interior design. They are very versatile and they can adapt their design to any décor. We have selected seven variants that we find particularly creative and beautiful. Choose the one that better suits your home and get to work!

1. A paint sample calendar.

This is a customizable design and it’s easy and fun to make. The supplies required are a frame, paint samples in the colors of your choice, a poster board for the background and glue. Start by trimming the chosen colors to the size you want. The labels for the days of the week should preferably be smaller than the calendar days. Then trim the poster board to fit the frame. Next, glue the paint samples to the poster board place it inside the frame.{found on chicisms}.

2. Vintage journal-style calendar.

This is another fun project but the design that’s based on is very different from the traditional calendar we all know. To make this one you’ll need a fruit box, 12 postcards, 180 lined index cards measuring 4 x 6’’, date stamps and a paper cutter. First cut the index cards in half. Then stamp the months and the date on each card. This may take a while. Next, trim the postcards to the same width of the index cards. They should be a little longer than those as well. Organize them by date and you’re done.{found on designsponge}.

3. Wall calendar/organizer.

If you have a wall that needs a makeover then this could be an interesting idea. It’s a calendar that takes up an entire wall and that also serves as an organizer. To make one you’ll need a foam roller, some tape and chalkboard paint. First establish the wall you want to use, measure it and decide on how you will organize it. Then use tape to divide it and apply chalkboard paint to the wall. After it’s dry remove the tape.

4. An instagram calendar.

This is a calendar that you can personalize with photos. To make one you’ll need 12 subject images, a plain poster board, a mini-calendar, scissors, glue and yarn and decorative paper. First trim the calendar pages to the size you want and cut out 13 square piece of poster board. Glue down the photo images and the calendar pieces. Add holes to the top portion of the calendar and use yarn to hold it together. It’s simple and fun.{found on abeautifulmess}.
