Supplies needed for this project:

  • Flat surface
  • Calendar image
  • Mod podge
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Clothing iron (Optional)

1. Choose your Surface

This blank wooden hanging sign was perfect for this project! It was almost the exact size and shape that I needed.

The ruler border, however was not, but a quick coat of paint took care of that!

2. Paint your Sign if Necessary

Acrylic or chalk paint works great for wood surfaces, but I had chalk at the ready, so that is what I used. After two coats of paint, this sign was ready for the image!

3. Choose and Cut a Calendar Image to Shape

I was looking for some decor for Spring, so once March had passed, I removed this image from Artist Jennifer Pugh’s 2023 calendar so I could use it for this project! Isn’t this gorgeous?! Mrs. Pugh is so very talented! You can find more of her art and calendars >>HERE<<! Make sure to use our discount code when ordering {MET10}!

4. Add the Calendar Image to the Surface

Once I had cut the image down to the shape and size that I needed, I used mod podge to adhere it to the surface of the board. If your image is thin, you can use the iron on method. These images are nice and thick, so I was able to adhere it while the mod podge was still wet.

I could have called it done after this, but I love to be extra, so I added a little more embellishment.

5. Add Optional Embellishments

This frayed edge canvas trim is ah-mazing and is what I added to the bottom and top of this sign using hot glue.

Something else I’ve been recently crushing on is this greenery trim. Both of which you can get at Hobby Lobby.

I layered the greenery trim on top of the canvas trim for a pretty neat design. It’s soo pretty and the green matched the colors in the image perfectly!

Once that was added, the sign was complete! I’m in love!!
