DIY Chalkboard Calendar #wallupdates

In the spirit of getting organized, I wanted to share with you my easy chalkboard calendar. It’s been very popular with our kids. They like knowing which days they have Tae Kwon Do and they also like to count down the days to important events. In the past I drew out the calendar lines, but trying to erase inside the lines was tedious and time consuming. And what busy mom has time for that?!
Using the level, make a straight (and level) line for the top of your calendar. (Mine is 28″ wide.)
Mark a tick mark horizontally every 4″ (more or less depending on your space availability) for the 7 days.
Use your vinyl lines to outline the calendar and create the horizontal lines.
Connect the vertical tick marks with vinyl lines. If you have excess vinyl, snip it short with a pair of scissors. (Our calendar is 20″ tall.)
In our house I added two calendars. It’s always nice to see a month ahead!
