Happy Monday! Can you believe Summer is nearly over? It's nearly August! Meijer already has back to school stuff out & Hobby Lobby is putting up Christmas stuff. ARE. YOU. KIDDING? I can't believe it! So this DIY is perfect for going back to school - dorm decor & what not - or if you just feel like you need a calendar by the door!
So start off with a picture you want to use. I pulled one off of instagram from the beginning of Summer that I then edited through PicFrame for the circle shape. PicFrame has a few different shapes you can use but I chose a simple circle.
I created a calendar template (download instructions are at the end of the post!) that you can change for each month using a font that should be available on your computer - Century Gothic. When you open the document in Word, make sure to highlight the text that says highlight & insert picture here. to make sure the picture fits correctly, us a square image no bigger than 612 px (you can use a photo editing program to crop it down to size.)
I just made one month template, so if you ever find a month that needs more rows for days, you can decrease the font in that box & do a / between each number or play around until your satisfied with the look (for example, March of next year I think has another row on a calendar). Here's what your finished calendar should look like:
There is also plenty of space around the calendar to write notes & reminders. I picked up a frame from the dollar store, trimmed the 8.5x11 paper to fit 8x10, framed my calendar, & placed it right by the door! I can't wait to remember all the things I keep forgetting.
I created a template for you, find it here. To download it, click the link where you'll be redirected to a Google Drive page. In the top left corner under File there is a little arrow, click that to download. Once it downloads to your computer you should be able to open & edit it in word. I hope it works for you! This is the first time I've done anything downloadable with the intention of editing it afterwords! Remember, this is free for personal use. Share it with friends, print for yourself, or make a gift!
Have a great week!
