Great minds must think alike.
Without having seen hers first I was busily putting together my own version playing off a project I did three years ago. Back then I used an old frame and some peg boards and hooks from the hardware store to make…
…a hanging place for my jewelry.
Wanting to do something similar I made my way to Home Depot.
They have a whole display where they sell boards, pre-painted chalkboards, dry erase boards, peg boards, etc. sized at 2 x 4 all under $10.00. Makes it SO easy to transport home and work with for smaller projects. They will even cut it down to the size you need for free…love that!
Then secured it to the frame using some picture hanging type hooks.
For the “calendar part” I used colored paper, smaller hardware paper bags, and office clips (Office Max).
I found this cool stamp at an antique store but you could print the date on paper with your computer or just hand write the date on your paper.
Then I clipped and hooked the bags on the board.
I love that this project isn’t holiday specific.
When Christmas is over I could use it to organize whatever else I need to.
Let the count down begin! My boys are SOOO excited to see what’s in each bag!
