Paint Chip Calendar

Showcase some colour in your apartment with Maple and Magnolia’s Paint Chip Calendar. This eye-catching DIY is not only creative but also cost-effective with its use of free paint swatches.

Feel free to experiment with an array of colours or use the DIY method of choosing different shades of the same colour.

 

DIY Chalkboard Wall Calendar

The 36th Avenue Chalkboard Calendar takes things a bit further by adding a magnetic component. This provides you with a place to keep your Save The Dates, invites and other important announcements

 

Calendar Blocks

Dry Erase

Keep track of school schedules, work events, extracurricular activities and the like with Crafting and Quilting’s Dry Erase Weekly Calendar. This calendar organizes events on a weekly basis, but can be customized into a monthly version.

 

Fridge Calendar
