Create a reusable DIY calendar to organize your schedule. Use watercolors for a splatter spray effect and write in important events each month!
1 On a piece of poster board, outline the grid for your calendar with washi tape. Use a ruler and pencil to create 7 equal boxes across and 5 equal boxes down.
2 Drop 1 or 2 watercolor tablets into a spray bottle and add 2 oz warm water.
3 Replace the cap on the spray bottle and shake to dissolve the watercolor tablet(s).
4 Spray the watercolor mixture onto the poster board.
5 Repeat steps 2–4 with different colors and let dry 1–2 hours.
6 Pull away the washi tape to reveal the calendar grid.
7 Write the days of the week at the top of the calendar with Super Tips.
8 Place the poster board into a plastic frame of the same size.
9 Use window markers to add in the month, days, and your events!
CIY Staff Tips:
- Use any size poster board or heavy paper that you’d like. To create our calendar, we used a 24” x 18” piece of poster board and created 3” x 3” squares to complete our calendar grid.
- To start fresh every month, wipe the frame clean using a damp paper towel.
