We’ve shared that we have a LARGE family so when it comes time to gift something to our parents on a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, Christmas or etc.,), we’ve got to step it up! We’ve got 8 additional siblings as competition, after all, LOL!! In all reality, our parents are really blessed and, being t well into their 70’s, they each have everything they want or need so they’ve become harder to shop for! Hence, our Wood Calendar Holder was born! 😉

We’ve been in the sign making business for over 10 years now and can attest that a custom, handmade gift will ALWAYS win the hearts of the giftee! Whether it’s a sign with their last name or a quote that means something personal to them, custom is a popular choice. Um, so are handmade gifts! Look at what else you can create:

Anywayssss! Customizing a calendar takes a few minutes as long as you’ve got 12 pictures on hand and a little creativity. Let’s take that photo calendar to the next level with this darling wood calendar holder.

Supplies to Make a Wood Calendar Holder

Grab the following supplies and let’s get to work!

DIY Wood Calendar Holder Supplies | Sick of the same old calendar holder!? This isn't your mama's calendar holder, we created a fresh take on calendar holders to create this rustic farmhouse wood calendar holder using a chalkboard and hook. So cute! #diy #calendarholder #woodcalendarholder

How to Make a Wood Calendar Holder

Our calendar frame is 12″ x 24″ to give you an idea of sizing. Our photo calendar is 8.5″ x 11″. Since we were recycling a sign we already had on hand, there was a little gap at the bottom which we thought was cute to further customize the frame. My talented daughter wrote “memories” but a fun little quote would be a sweet touch. So many ways to customize this whole project!

  1. Build wood frame. (Again, here is the tutorial for our chalkboard frame shown.)
  2. Stain edges of frame.
  3. Paint inside wood with chalkboard paint, (black acrylic paint also works.)
  4. Season black board with chalk, (rub chalk vertically then horizontally across the entire board, then gently erase with dry paper towel, or soft rag.)
  5. Screw hinge clip into upper center of your board using screwdriver.
  6. Clip calendar to board, (we made our custom calendar at VistaPrint but any calendar works, too!)
  7. Write “memories” or other phrase/saying with chalk onto chalkboard.
  8. Hang from wall or prop up to display. Enjoy!
