I’m so excited it’s Friday guys and to make things even better, I have a super simple (and functional) DIY and printable to share!

Between 3 kids starting school,1 in preschool, two playing soccer and one playing football, our google calendar is filling up. Even when we keep it updated I still find away to forget things. Like Poppy’s well child visit we barely made it to earlier this week. I started thinking that maybe I need a weekly calendar that stands out, catches my eye and looks perty. Something I’ll see when walking into the living area of our home instead of staring at my phone or computer.




So I decided to turn our days of the week print into a weekly calendar by ordering it as a 16×20 metal wall art via tiny prints and then used washi tape and a sharpie to write down appointments, outings, practices, games and our dinner menu.

A framed version would work just as well and be less expensive but I wanted to try something a bit more durable and different. Especially since it is hanging where sticky kid hands can get to it.

It’s been so handy and earned several compliments in it’s short existence. Even the kids (and husband!) can take a peek and see what we have going on that day or what we’ll be eating.


Like any good thing, one is just not enough so I ended up ordering a 10×14 inch metal print of the multi-color version to use in my office. Can’t wait for it to arrive!

All the files to DIY are linked below and ready to use at tiny prints, costco or most other commercial print places.

    Do you use a special type of Sharpie to write on your Washi Tape? Or maybe special washi tape? I had a similar idea, but it didn’t work super well when my pen wouldn’t write on the darn washi tape! :( Love this though – so cute!

      Hey Ashley! Just the ultra fine point Sharpie and I think all the washi tapes I picked for this project are Scotch brand from Target. Hopefully that works for you! I know I tried a couple other fine tip marker-like-pens before finding the sharpie that didn’t work. XO

    Is this picture showing the metal one? It’s so hard to tell if it’s metal or canvas in your picture, but goodness what a gorgeously graphic and clever calendar idea!!

    Hi mama

    Just wondering if you will ever do a “caught you doing something good” reward printable. Where you can write down what you caught your kid doing to reinforce the good behaviors and after a week or so you can hang the notes up and they can pick a prize?!? I also asked about the birthday interview printable too before. Love your monochrome modern style in the printable a you create especially with the cutout font style please make more printables
