Simple DIY Wall Calendar


I am relieved to have a calendar hanging on my room's wall. I made it yesterday, which means for 17 days, I was without a calendar. I felt naked. I had to either check in my cellphone, my agenda, or my mom's room to know which date falls on which day. We purchased a printer yesterday, and for the print-check, I gave a print of January month. I was quite happy with the print and so went forth for printing remaining 11 pages. And as you know me, I cannot keep such lovely papers loose and that I would immediately make the calendar, I actually did. My poor parents had to wait for lunch because of me.

It's a very simple wall calendar, and not like the one I'd made last year. This one involves no stitching and even your kid can make this. (Also, make a note that this calendar is available in peacock blue and red colour combination too.)


THINGS REQUIRED
  • Calendar Printables
  • Hole Punch Machine
  • Pair of Scissors
  • Ribbon
STEPS 


1 | PRINT THE CALENDAR LAYOUT
Print the calendar as per your wish. I printed it on an A4 size paper and the printer settings were 'normal'. As I had to just test the printer, I did not choose a superior quality of printing. You can choose so, and also choose the size.

2 | ARRANGE THE MONTHS
After printing, you can arrange the months, or you can postpone this step.



3 | CUT THE WHITE SPACE
Cut the 'white' space. Sorry for being such a journalism student here, but that's the best word I could come up with. Cut the extra space and give a shape to your calendar. You can leave a bit of margin in the top to punch a hole, or can do it as I've done.



4 | PUNCH A HOLE
Carefully align the sheets and punch a hole in between. For perfect balance, measure and find out the middle point.



5 | PASS A RIBBON AND TIE A KNOT
Pass a pretty ribbon and tie a knot. The knot can make or break the impression, so tie it in a way that will give you a cute bow. You can also use a lace instead of the ribbon.



6 | HANG ON WALL
Finally, choose a place where you frequently sit, and hang your calendar on the wall. I've hung it in my bedroom, where I just have to tilt my neck in order to get a look at it.


Which calendar are you using this year?
