DIY Acrylic Calendar

3 Materials
2 Hours

I wanted one of these cool acrylic calendars for

my new office space but boy are they expensive! They run about $100 for this size on Etsy. I’m making mine for just $30!

To begin I bought this plexiglass frame ($25) and a roll of vinyl ($5) off of Amazon. I mean where else do you buy anything these days? 😉 Linked below!

I did need to borrow a friend’s Cricut to cut the vinyl but you can also order the stickers from Etsy or someone local that does decals.

Weeding was super satisfying! I could have done it for hours!

I also spray painted my hardware gold for an elevated look. This is my favorite gold paint!

After applying the vinyl inside the 2 plexiglass pieces that the frame comes with, it was time to hang!

It took me awhile to realize I was missing the part of the hardware that bumps it off the wall but it still turned out really cool! I’ll use dry erase or expo markers to write on it.
