At I Spy DIY Studio, I have been looking for a stylish way to stay organized when planning photoshoots, posts, trips, etc…I have not found a calendar that fits the look of my space, so decided to DIY one for my wall. The original idea was to paint a section of the wall with chalkboard paint, but I was a little hesitant to cover a chunk of my white wall with black. Then, I discovered Scotch™ Chalkboard Tape! I was super stoked to test it out, and after some math (blech) and measuring on the wall, we plotted out a monthly calendar to chalk with the important dates for each month. There is also a dry erase version of the tape, and couple strips are lining my desk for my daily to-do list. Cool, right? Step and supplies after the break!

What you need:
Scotch™ Chalkboard Tape
Scissors
Ruler
Chalk
Pencil
Vinyl letters

What to do:
First, Measure and mark placement of the calendar on your wall. We made each date 4″ long with an inch space all around each date, then added an additional row  below for notes, and above the days of the week to write the month.
Next, cut the 4″ pieces of Chalkboard Tape.
Peel off the backing, and stick each piece of tape on the wall in place.
Stick your letters above each row to signify days of the week.
Draw on your number and notes using chalk and stickies. Done!

Heads up! This product is not recommended for direct use on walls as stated on the package. I used this as a temporary solution for I Spy DIY’s studio. You may risk damage to the paint on your wall when removing the product. Try doing the same steps can be made on a piece of poster board, white painted wood, etc.

I am proud to be a 3M- sponsored blogger, and, as part of my responsibilities, I get the opportunity to evaluate products from Scotch® Duct Tape. Opinions are my own and additional product used in the project were selected by me.

    This is awesome! I wish I could do something like this, but seeing as I live in a dorm the tape would need to be removable! (Maybe we can pass that idea along *hint, hint*)
