How to make a Farmhouse WALL Calendar
Lay the Dollar Tree wall calendar on top of the faux wood shiplap peel and stick wallpaper and trace around it with a pencil.
Isn’t this faux shiplap so pretty? I’ve seen a similar style at home stores for 10x the price! If your dollar store has this I would definitely scoop it up.
Cut the template of the calendar from the faux shiplap wallpaper.
Be aware of the wall paper pattern as you cut your template to ensure you get the portion of the design you desire for the wall calendar.
Use a craft piercing tool to mark where the holes go for the hooks to line up on the wall calendar.
Make sure you do this after measuring but before removing the sticky backing of the peel and stick wallpaper.
Double check to make sure that your holes line up both on the wallpaper as well as the hooks on the wall calendar.
Once the backing of the sticky wallpaper is removed, it’s pretty hard to make adjustments.
Remove the backing of the peel and stick wallpaper and carefully stick it over the top of the original calendar to create a more farmhouse look to this decor piece.
Turn the calendar over and trim off any excess wallpaper with your craft scissors.
Place the months and number tags back into place in order to line up your favorite stencil!
Once it is lined up, use a squeegee and your chalk paste (I chose black so that it would pop) to add the “blessed” design to the bottom of the calendar.
The red color of the calendar tags didn’t particularly match with the farmhouse look I was going for, so I used a black sharpie to trace over each letter and number. If you are happy with the color you can skip this step.
If you’d rather change up the tags all together, you may try the Dollar Tree black chalk tags and trim them down to size so that they fit this wall calendar.
To give the twine hanger a little more dimension I added buffalo check beads that I had in my stash. So cute!
You can just reattach the twine with a staple gun.
Your beautiful new farmhouse calendar is ready to hang. You can find magnets at the dollar store or craft store so you can add this cutie to your refrigerator.
