DIY Dry Erase Calendar

I have been needing a place to jot down important events and our shopping list. That is the reason for this simple DIY dry erase wall calendar. This DIY wall calendar is super easy to make, and does not require a printer. It is easily customizable to your style and space and is perfect for your command center at home or office wall.


Card stock paper
Scissors (or X-acto blade)
Double-sided tape
Glass photo frame
Ironing Board


Step 1: Choose a glass photo frame. I wanted one that would give me enough space to write down events for the calendar, so I purchased a 18″x24″ frame.

Step 2: Purchase fabric that is slightly bigger than the frame to make sure that the fabric fits seamlessly in the frame.

Step 3: Place fabric inside the frame and fold over the over flowing fabric to match the edges of the glass. Pin down the fabric that is folded over.

Step 4: Iron the fabric to get rid of wrinkles and to flatten down the parts that were folded over.

Step 5: Measure and cut card stock paper to size to fit your frame. These were my measurements.
Calendar date boxes- 2.5″ x 2″
Day of the week the boxes – 2.5″ x 0.75″
Large notes box – 6.5″ x 8.5″
Small notes box – 6.5″ x 3.75″

Step 6: Layout the boxes on the fabric and place double sided tape on each square. Flip over the boxes and secure in place with the double sided tape.


Step 7: Flip the fabric over so that the side with the boxes are against the glass, and put on the frame backing.

Step 8: Fill in the month, days, and type of notes you want for each note box.

All done! 🙂 Now all you need to do is hang it up.
