If you ever see any boards like this with slats in it, grab them! You can make the cut image board like you see above and I’ll show you! You can get something called bead board, but the slats are usually not even like this. You can even make your own with paint sticks! Use what you’ve got! It’s one of my mottos!

Painting bead board white to cover a preprinted image

After your board is painted and dried, add mod podge where your calendar image will be. Try not to cover the whole board just yet because your iron will cause the mod podge to stick to your parchment paper during the next step. You will mod podge the remainder of the board after you adhere your image. I’m using the iron on method. 

After everything dries, add your little details!
