DIY Desk Calendar

In my annual flurry of organization around January 1st, I realized I didn’t have a in our office anywhere. I wanted something small that wouldn’t take up too much space, and this desk calendar was born.
It combines two of my favorite things–watercolor and ombré–and I hope it’ll make a pretty little addition to any desk.
And don’t worry—you don’t need to be an artist to pull off this project. If you can hold a paintbrush, you can paint ombré! You may need to practice a little beforehand (I definitely wasted about 5 gift tags before I figured it out), but once you get the hang of it it’s quite simple.
