For some reason this year, I have been very slack with buying a 2010 calendar. Don't ask me why I just have. I saw this over at Mad in Crafts, and thought to myself what an easy way to make a calendar. So here's my verison.
What you will need:
8.5 x 11 picture frame
Calendar - I printed mine from Excel
2 hooks for the calendar
Here's the picture frame I started with.
Yep, it's very dirty, but as I've said many times I have to keep it real!!!
If your frame is dirty make sure you clean it off before you spray paint.
I took the picture and glass out of the frame before I started spray painting.
I used about 2 coats of glossy black spray paint.
Sorry, for the ugly grass! I'm still waiting for it to warm up, so I can work in my yard.
I found some scrapbook paper that I wanted to use. I taped the scrapbook paper to the picture. I didn't want to glue the paper on the picture. Just in case I want to change the scrapbook paper.
I put the glass back in the frame added the picture/scrapbook paper, and closed the back.
I then put the hooks at the bottom to hold the calendar. I used a drill so the hooks would go in easier.
I screwed the hooks to the bottom of the frame, and then very carefully I punched holes through the calendar. I used my staple gun and added ribbon to the back, so I could hang it up.
I have a dry erase board/calendar!
I had the frame, spray paint, scrapbook paper, ribbon, and printed the calendar
not at work. Total price zero dollars!
