Here is a fun idea for making a desktop calendar for the kitchen or office.
I don't have much wall space in my kitchen. So this was a great way to get a calendar in my kitchen
where I need it most. It's a great calendar for monthly menus too!
It is very easy to reorder calendar refills.
Items needed: 9.25" x 11.25" MDF scrap wood
(Lowes and Home Depot will cut this wood for you if you buy it at their store)
1 Small bolt or screw, 1 metal flower of decorative hook
1 Calendar 7"x 9"
Paint all 4 edges of wood.
Cut scrapbook paper to fit on 4 edges plus the front.
Spray mount 4 edges onto wood first. Be sure to spray both the wood and the paper for a
permanent bond. Spray the top last. Be sure to cover your edges while you spray.
Optional: For the perfectionists...Paint back of board black
Rub corners with a foam brush to darken them. You could also use a black ink pad.
Measure and drill a hole large enough for your bolt/screw.
Be sure to use the actual calendar for your measuring.
Beginning with the 4 edges, roll or brush on Mod Podge to add a protective seal to the paper.
I like to us a roller for a nice canvas looking texture. Roll on quickly.
Wait for it to dry completely between coats.
There you have it! Organized and uncluttered!
