Sharpie your Calendars!

In a brave attempt to spice up my calendar this December, I skipped the usual Google search: “Downloadable/Printable Calendar” and decided to make my own.  It’s not much but definitely looks good and is a reminder that the holidays are quickly approaching. 

This is a VERY simple project and I bet that we can get through it in 5 easy steps!

Here’s what you’ll need:

A piece of cardboard/poster board, 31 small wooden ornaments, glue, a Sharpie Metallic, Sharpie Oil Based Paint markers in White (not shown below) and Metallic Gold (Metallic Silver is also available) and a Black Fine Point Sharpie.

Materials for calendar

(I used brown poster board, serving as the back of the calendar)

1st Step

Color your ornaments silver, gold and white with your Sharpie markers. 

2nd Step

After the ornaments are colored, skatter them around on the poster board to your liking and glue them down.

3rd Step

Next, number each ornament 1 through 31 in numerical order with a Black Fine Point Sharpie.  Try using different font styles to give the calendar a little extra somethin’!

4th Step

With your Black Fine Point Sharpie, write “DECEMBER” along the left side of the calendar. 

 

…and VOILA!

There you have it, your very own custom made seasonal calender that can be used year after year!
