One of my favorite presents this year was a calender my sister-in-law put together of Maddi. The pictures are adorable!! Ironically, I haven't had a real calender in 3 years, so I needed a great place for it.
I made this messenger board a few years ago from a yard sale find ($3) and decided I could pop it out and recover it again because, well, I just don't use it!
So simple to recover.
Just pull off the old, cut out the new fabric piece, pull tight, and staple. If you don't have a staple gun, you should get one.
It is fantastic!
The board I have is too flimsy for nails or push pins, so I chose to hang the calender by ribbon. You'll need to secure the ribbon in the back with a few staples so that it can take the weight.
And the bow is cute and useful. It allows me to untie it and change the page each month!
I love how this turned out!
