Back-to-School Eraseable (Paint Chip) Calendar

Hello Everyone!

Happy Saturday… what are your plans for today? For us, some Saturdays have no routine at all and are all about sleeping it and relaxing and doing things around the house. Other times, like today, our Saturdays are about hitting the local farmers market for fresh produce, treasure hunting at garage sales and of course, a trip to Michaels for some supplies for an upcoming project!

Back to School Erasable Paint Chip Calendar

Speaking of routine, in about one month we’ll be back to routine! I’m trying to get more organized (there, I put it in print so now my husband can hold me accountable heehee!) so I decided to make my own erasable calendar to keep organized once the kiddies head back to school. I’ll show you how I did it for a grand total of $1.25 + tax. Ready?

You will need:

* picture frame with glass of your choice (I chose an 11X14 sized one)

* white cardstock paper for the background

* paint chip samples (from a paint or hardware store)

* paper cutter or square punch (I used the punch)

*erasable marker

* double sided adhesive squares

The first thing I did was use cardstock paper and trimmed it down to fit my frame. I then used my square punch to cut 35 squares out of my paint chips. (Using the punch saved me tons of time, instead of using a paper cutter.) I cut the days of the week squares much smaller than the daily squares. Using a permanent marker I wrote the days of the weeks on the smaller pieces. I then used double sided adhesive tape and applied them all to the cardstock. That easy, huh?

I then put the cardstock into the frame and then for the fun part! Using an erasable marker, write the numbers, months and anything else on your calendar. I am choosing to leave mine blank until September 2… and then I can begin filling it! I’m sure it’ll help me stay much, much more organized!

Thanks for coming by and have a wonderful weekend!

Until next time,

    How fun is this?! We are renting a townhome until we buy a house so we can’t really add a lot of color to things.. it’s pretty blah; especially the kitchen. This will be a great burst of color and will really brighten the room up. Thanks for the great idea!!!

    I really love this! So cute. I have a frame. I love paint chips. I think I’ll do one of these to chart out my craft projects. Love!
