Most of the time we use an app on our smartphones to plan appointments, and anything we need to remember for the coming month. This has been working ok, but we often forget to write down the appointment or forget to set an alarm so we actually get a note beforehand. That’s why I really wanted to try making my own DIY monthly planner!
We’ve been seeing a bigger and bigger need for actually having a real life monthly planner. A planner that we can hang somewhere where it easily will be seen every day. I just love the idea of having a monthly planner hanging in the kitchen. With a quick look, we can easily get an overview of what’s in store for the coming weeks and month.
At first, I tried to find one I could buy, but I didn’t really find any planners that I liked. I did eventually find a few whiteboard planners I liked, but they turned out to be way too expensive.
So of course, I ended up trying to make my own DIY monthly planner. And you know what? It actually turned out really good!
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN DIY MONTHLY PLANNER
What you’ll need:
- Picture frame, to fit an A3 size picture (11.7-inch x 16.5 inch)
- Whiteboard dry erase markers with erasers
- Monthly planner printable (make your own, or download my planner for free in the link below)
How to make it:
You can easily design your own monthly planner in the most common design programs, or feel free to download my planner here
Now that you have your printable, either print it at home or at your nearest copy center. I printed mine planner at Staples.
Put the printable inside your frame ( you may need to cut to adjust on the short sides of the planner)
Use a whiteboard marker, and write down the days of the month in the small circles and the month on the top.
And there you have it, your super easy DIY monthly planner!
I would love to hear from you if you end up making your own monthly planner! It’ s so easy and SO USEFUL. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do <3
