If you haven’t purchased a calendar for the new year yet, don’t worry. We are here to prove that you don’t need to buy one. With just a few materials and by following a few steps you can make a better one that you could ever find in a shop. And the best part is that you can personalize any one of these and make it more or less personal, depending on the final recipient.
If you need it for yourself, you can add something more personal, such as photographs. If you want to give a gift to someone you can add something you know they will like. And you can also use these for both home and office in order to be more productive in this new year. So don’t worry, you will find something here for everyone.
Count the days that come and go…
First, we have a flip style of calendar shared with us by harriwren which I think is a very charming way to keep track of your days. In the month section you can also add a photo to the calendar or leave in just the name. This gives you the option of personalizing the calendar and making it more to your liking.
Next, from chicisms, we have a paint chip dry and erase calendar which is as simple as it can get. You just need to select the paint chips, which also gives you the choice of color for your calendar. And frame them. But in order to do it properly, just follow the link below and check out all the steps you need to follow.
For your home calendar, a more permanent dry and erase version can be a good solution. You just need a bit of chalk board paint and, of course, some chalk. As presented in the photo below from ispydiy, this can be a very good solution for your home office calendar. It won’t take up any space and it will always remind you of the important tasks that you have to do.
Another paint chip version of a calendar is this next project from sayyes. This time you can use a corkboard for a more easy placement of the paint chips and for a more easy replacement. And because you can get rid of the paint chips so easily, you can also mark the important dates with more striking colors and never forget a significant event again.
I can’t believe I get to say this, but this next project is as cute as a button. Ha! The idea comes from makezine and I think it is one of the most charming that I have ever seen. If you are into fashion, home crafts and diy, then you should really try this calendar on for size. And I bet that whomever you give it to as a present will appreciate the effort and charm of it.
