Hey, we all have calendars in our homes, but have you ever thought about producing one yourself? If so, we’ve got a lesson for you on how to make an ombre calendar at home.
Crafting an ombre calendar is a snap if you get all of the essential things on board. You’ll need to have the following resources to make your own ombre calendar at home:
- White eyelet tags
- White wooden box
- Rub-on stickers
- Patterned sheet
Let’s just get going on making an ombre calendar now that you do have the materials required. Making an ombre calendar is simple if you follow the instructions carefully:
Step 1: Firstly, take a big white wooden box. Measure its interior and cut out a patterned sheet of that size. Stick the sheet inside the box with the help of glue. Make sure to get rid of any bubbles or wrinkles. Let the box dry for 15-20 minutes.
Paste the sheet
Step 2: Next, take out the white eyelet gift tags, watercolors, and brushes. Wet the first color using the paintbrush dipped in water, making sure you have a good amount of coloring on the paintbrush. Make a huge slash across the first tag’s edge. Rinse the paintbrush, wash it lightly, then use only water to paint the second stripe above and parallel to the first. Continue in this manner until you reach the halfway point of the card.
Paint the edge
Step 3: Repeat the steps with the remaining 13 tags. Allow time for the opposite side to dry before continuing. If the paper begins to curl, don’t worry; coloring both sides will straighten it, and you may easily bend it slightly later.
Paint all the tags
Step 4: Sort the labels into 3 heaps of six, two, and five. The months would be in the first stack, the day’s first figure in the middle pile, and the day’s second digit in the 3rd pile. Apply the rub-on letter instructions and transfer the same to both the front and back of the labels.
Apply the letters
Step 5: The three C-hooks should then be screwed into the box’s roof. Three tags, properly spaced, should be added to your box.
Attach the hooks
Step 6: Your ombre calendar is ready to be placed on your desk.
You’re invited to give it a shot on your own. And it is now up to you to come up with new ideas. Complying with the following steps, you now know how to make an ombre calendar. So take advantage of the opportunity and then see what unfolds.
