DIY: Wall Calendar

Here’s how to easily make a customized wall calendar for under $100 


DIY: Wall Calendar

I posted an Instagram photo last week of my home office and received a ton of questions regarding the calendar and where it was from so I thought I would simplify it for you in a blog post so you c an make one too! Last summer I was looking for a calendar for a kind of weird size to perfectly fit my wall. The only ones I could find that I really liked were lucite and around $500. I liked the idea of them being dry erase because I honestly just love writing with dry erase markers (yep – still a kid!). I did some research online but had a hard time finding the size I needed and a frame that matched for under $100. I measured the space and found a standard frame size from Aaron Brothers that would work and that I actually liked! I then went on Etsy to try and find a font and template I liked. The one I found was super cheap and I downloaded it instantly. After downloading, I went online and tried to find the best price to print 12 huge prints. A trick I discovered is the size I wanted was the same size as floor plan / architectural prints which were thin paper and less expensive than regular paper. I ended up using Staples and my prints were ready in under a week!

    This is awesome!
    Would you be able to provide a link for the same dry erase frame you bought from Aaron Brothers?

      Hey! Thank you! It’s actually not called a “dry-erase” frame. It’s a normal frame and the glass acts as a dry erase board! It wipes off super easily! Unfortunately, their website is not working properly and I am unable to see the frames they have 🙁

    Do you happen to know the size of your frame?

      I believe the width is 30 inches and the height is 24 inches.

        When printing out the calendar portion, did you get the calendar prints sent to you or did you print them yourself?

          I had them printed at Staples Office Store I went to pick them up but I’m sure it would be fine if they send them to you 🙂
