DIY - Paint Sample Dry Erase Calendar

Even though I normally only do sweets on this website I wanted to share a calendar I made the other day!

While browsing through pinterest or etsy you see so many diy paint sample projects. What's not to love about them? First its cheap {paint samples are free} and second they usually are just plain cute. I finally decided to try a paint sample project of my own: a dry erase calendar!


Supplies:
  • Lots and Lots of paint samples. I honestly don't know how many I used)
  • A Cute Frame
  • Glue {I like rubber cement}
  • Scissors or a Paper Cutter
  • Large piece of paper that fits in frame. I glued my calendar to back of the paper that came with it.
  • Stickers or Pen for the dates
  • A Ruler
  • Dry Erase Markers
Directions {Based on a 14x18in frame}

1. Use your scissors or paper cutter to cut out 9 (1.5in x 1in) month letter square, 7 (2.25in x 1.25in) weekday block, 35 (2.25in x1.75in) day blocks and 2 (7.5in x 1.75in) note blocks.


2. Arrange all the pieces until you get the color pattern you like.


3. Write or add stickers to the  7 (2.25in x 1.25in) weekday block for the weekdays.


4. Start Gluing the pieces to the paper and let dry.


5. Place in Frame and admire your masterpiece!


How do you like to keep yourself organized?

  1. I'm reading the instructions and thinking "well, how is it dry erase?" Oh, you put the calendar in the frame with the glass from the frame. The glass is the dry erase surface. I love this project and I have the perfect frame for it! Going to the paint department now!
