While I was at the DI the other day (the DI is my local version of Goodwill) I picked up a few other frames, because when they’re $1 each, I’m sure I will find something to do with them. I already had an idea for one.
The Creative Crate is one of those blogs I look to lots for inspiration. Usually when I see someone’s idea, it really is just inspiration - I use it to spark my own imagination and let my creativity flow like with the menu board.
However, this time I just plain made what she did. Almost exactly the same way. So, here’s my version of her dry-erase calendar made from an old frame.
I painted it black, traced lines for my calendar on the glass, cut out little circles with my cricut, and hung it on the wall. Stacie has great directions over at her site, so check them out if you have questions and want to make your own. Warning… you’ll probably be there for a while exploring all the other fun things she has!
I’m pretty happy with it. Although, my frame is just 11 x 14… I may have to try it again with a bigger frame so I have more room to write. Of course, I need more things to fill up my calendar with before I really need more room.
I think then I might make something like this to hang pens right next to it.
