I have needed a dry erase calendar ever since I had my first son and he’s 2 1/2! 🙂
I finally got around to it, and I have to say I LOVE it!
It will be perfect for my weekly scheduling of cleaning, kids crafts, cooking, and so much more!
I decided to do a week calendar instead of a month. That’s how much I need to be micromanaged on these things. 🙂
All you need is a frame, vinyl or permanent marker, and fabric (my favorite part!)
I got an old frame from a thrift store for a couple bucks.
To make the frame look a little nicer, I spray painted it dark brown.
(No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. This is a different frame that was painted for another project about a year ago. I’ll get around to it someday. 🙂 )
Then I cleaned off the glass and got my vinyl ready.
You can definitely just use a permanent marker for this next step!
Make sure to do the lines on the back of the glass, and you can put the letters and numbers on the front.
I had a friend cut my vinyl letters and numbers. I just cut the strips myself.
They are uneven, but I kind of like it that way.
When I finished putting all my vinyl on the glass, I got my fabric ready.
This fabric is Green Damask in Isabella for Riley Blake.
I only needed a fat quarter for my 11×14 frame.
I cut the fabric to be 12×15.
Then I wrapped it around the back of the frame.
I used tape to tighten out any wrinkles.
Now it’s ready to be put back into the frame with the glass.
I am so excited to get more organized!
Especially when my organizer can count as decoration. 🙂
