DIY Dry Erase Weekly Calendar

Hi Everyone! I just got back from a lovely long weekend with my family. We rented a house in Three Rivers, which is right outside the Sequoia National Park. We literally had a river in our backyard and we did alot of fishing, hiking, rock scrambling, swimming, and exploring. It was wonderful!

Now...back to the grind. And I would be seriously lost without my weekly calendar. I made this from a 12x12 photo frame, some Momenta paper, and my Cricut.

I removed the photo mat and added a 12x12 piece of patterned paper from the Family Outings Momenta paper pad. I added two small strips down the side. I cut the letters for all the days of the week on my Cricut and adhered them to the paper.

I put the paper inside the frame and then added some clear layered stickers to the corner.

That's it!! It was super easy! Now it hangs in my kitchen where I can see it every morning. I update it on Sunday night and then I can pretend that I actually have a handle on my week.

You could use any size frame for this project. I had a 12x12 frame hanging around just waiting to be used. And the great thing about glass is you can write on it with a dry erase pen and then just wipe it off. Yeah!

I hope you all had a great weekend, thanks for stopping by today!!
