Craft Night: Meal Planning or Calendar Board (Level 1)

Every couple of days, I get the itch to make something, organize something, etc.  Today I got both.  I have been cleaning out our closets and storage for a community garage sale and found this collage frame from Wal-Mart.   My brain immediately thought of something I saw on pinterest the other day, and to the crafting room I went. 

We have needed a dry erase calendar for months, but every time I see the pre-made white ones, I think about college.  My grown up house should never look like my dorm dang it!  Then this pinterest pin gave me the spark I needed to make something more grown up but still fun.

Collage Frame Recycle into Calendar Board



  • 8 Slot Collage Frame.  Mine was from Wal-Mart and probably less than $5 from their cheapy Main Stays brand
  • Background Paper.  I designed my own 4×6 pieces in Photoshop, but you could use scrapbook paper, stickers, markers, etc for yours
  • Scissors

This one is pretty self-explanatory and turns out adorable…and I spent $0 out of pocket on it!  I can’t wait to use some funky colored dry erase markers on it!
