How To Make Your Own Wall Calendar?

Search ‘printable calendars’ on your favourite internet search engine and you will find loads of inspiration for you or your little one’s calendar design.

This is a chance for your children to get the pens, paints and glitter out ready to make lovely backgrounds for each month of the year. Think love hearts for Valentine’s Day, ice lollies for August and autumnal colours, pumpkins and leaves for September and October.

Or your little ones can decorate plain calendars using uni-ball’s colourful drawing and colouring pens, which you can find out more about here.

If you’re an adult we think you will LOVE this idea for a vintage calendar, which is a stylish way of storing your memories.

Website homedidit gives these instructions for creating your very own vintage journal and they’ve thrown in a few other personalised calendar ideas too.

Vintage photo calendar - make your own calendar

The folks at homedit say to make your own calendar you will need:

  • A fruit box
  • 12 postcards
  • 180 lined index cards measuring 4 x 6
  • A date stamp (or you can handwrite dates)
  • A paper cutter (or scissors will do fine)

First you have to cut the index cards in half. Next, trim the postcards so that they are the same width of the index cards but make sure the postcards are slightly longer.

Then organise the cards in date order and you are finished!
