Wall calendars have many issues, but the two biggest are cost and style. And, unless they are of the dry erase variety, you are stuck having to buy a new one every year. Instead of spending too much on an eyesore, make your own with a beautiful frame and the DIY design of your liking.

Begin by removing the cardboard backer from a 22-x-28-inch frame. Use a large circle punch to cut 35 circles out of scrapbook paper. Using a tape measure, create margins by making two lines at the 1-inch mark at the end of each side. Using a ruler to keep level and a coffee stirrer for even spacing, stick the circles to the cardboard with a glue stick in five rows of seven. Start on the left side and leave space at the top and right side of the cardboard piece for a month label at the top and a to-do list on the side.

Place the newly decorated cardboard back in the frame and use a dry erase marker on the glass for a calendar you can update each month and use year after year.
