Get Organized With This DIY Dry-Erase Calendar

Photography by The Aesthetic Writer

We’re big fans of budget-friendly crafts and activities—especially those involving paint chips. We’ve talked about turning paint chips into a great summertime game and using them to help kids learn colours, but what about a paint-chip craft that’s just for adults?

We stumbled upon this awesome DIY dry-erase calendar idea on Pinterest and traced it back to The Aesthetic Writer. Apart from being budget-friendly, we like that you can easily customize this calendar by choosing colours that best suit your personal taste.

What you’ll need:
• Paint chips (large square ones will work best)
• Scissors
• Glue
• A picture frame with glass (The Aesthetic Writer opted for 12″ by 16″)
• Black dry-erase marker

You’ll find the full details for making your own DIY dry-erase calendar over at The Aesthetic Writer. Because this project is cost effective, you may want to create a few extra calendars with your kids to help them keep track of important school dates and extracurricular activities.

    Collecting paint chips from a store when you have no intention of purchasing paint is theft. The store doesn’t get them for free.
    This project would work just as well with squares of coloured paper.
