How To Make Your Own Chalkboard Wall Calendar

Here’s a recycled post from a few years ago, that I thought deserves another look!  This was a fun project!

I have a project I did last week that I have been dying to show you!! I bought a
DCWV chalkboard paper stack a while back, and like a lot of others, wasn’t sure
what to do with it once I got it home! Erin, on the DCWV blog recently searched
Pinterest and found lots of cute projects using chalkboard paper, and posted
them. (Unfortunately, once it was on her blog, I couldn’t tell where the actual
picture came from that inspired me, so I’m sorry I can’t give credit where
credit is due.) One of the pics gave me the idea for this:

It’s a chalkboard paper wall calendar!!

You can see my Cricut sitting on the desk
next to the calendar to give you a sense of the size. The blue paper has a
sheen to it, so I couldn’t get any pics without the shine…sorry!

Here’s a pic once I got the numbers written
on.

I added another piece of paper at the top to
be able to write in the name of the month.

Here’s a closeup of the papers fitted
together.

I used white vinyl (Contact paper actually) and the Cricut
Designer’s Calendar cartridge to cut out the days of the week. Each square for
each day is 6×6 inches, so the whole calendar measures 2 1/2 feet by 3 1/2
feet. I got some Uchida Bistro Chalk Markers to write with, since they write
finer lines than a piece of chalk and hold up longer. When I’m ready to change
everything to the next month, I just have to wipe the marks off with a damp
cloth, and I’m ready to go!

I hope you like it!

Happy Scrapping!
