Introduction: Wood Block Calendar

About: Hola Sara is a lifestyle and entertaining blog focusing on my favorite food recipes, DIY projects, and places I have visited. I hope to express my creativity and give inspiration to those on my passions.

Hi everyone! I’m really excited about sharing this fun, easy and minimal DIY project with you. I’m particularly fond of its compact form, you may think that the blocks might take up too much space, but it can fit anywhere and can be used year round.

Step 1: Materials Needed:

  • 6 blocks - 2 inch unfinished wood blocks
  • 1 inch letters & numbers
  • block character template
  • white acrylic paint
  • small sponge brush
  • gloves (optional)

Numbers:
0-9 + 1 & 2 (additional)

Letters:
A, B, C, D, E, F, J, L, M, N, O, P, R, S, T, U, V, Y

Step 2: Paint Blocks

Paint your unfinished wooden blocks with the white acrylic paint using your sponge brush. Wait 20 - 30 minutes for paint to dry before painting all sides of the block.

Optional: You may use gloves while doing this step to avoid paint getting your hands

Step 3: Stick on Letters and Numbers

Using the block character template, stick on the correct letters and numbers to each painted block.

Now enjoy your wooden block calendar all year long!

    Hi there, just noticed you missed the letter 'D' on your template. The 'B' should be shifted to a blank space on Block 6 and the 'D' should go where the 'B' was on Block 4. Awesome calendar I can't wait to make it.
