Washi Tape Window Calendar

Pin It

There are so many great projects out there using Washi tape. I,for one, couldn't really think of anything I wanted to make with it, so I'm a little late playing around with it!
But, I have some windows in my garage that a friend gave me when they replaced the windows in her house.
what to do?
Here's what I came up with...
 I found the tape at Target. In the same section as the tape, they had magnets that have the days of the week on them. I also got my dry erase markers on the same aisle.
 I had originally planned to have it where you'd just write in the day of the week, but when I saw these magnets, I knew they'd be perfect!

I measured to evenly divide the window into 7 sections across.
I measured off 5 sections from the bottom up leaving enough space at the top to add my days of the week and the month.

An xacto knife cut the excess tape perfectly.

Using E6000, I glued the days of the week magnets onto the window.

 I added one more row of tape above the days of the week.

All you have to do is write in the month and add the numbers in the correct section and your calendar is ready to fill in with all your important dates!

  The dry erase markers work great on the glass. Just wipe it off when the next month rolls around.

  1. You clever gal! I've not tried Washi Tape yet but it sure looks like fun -- this is so colorful and yet useful!

  2. Love your idea to recycle the window as a calendar! The Washi Tape is playful in bright colors. I'm going to Target to check out the WT.

  3. What a great idea... Experimenting with Washi tape is also on my (very long) list of projects to try. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Wow. What a fun idea. It turned out really cute.

  5. That's a great project. I've never heard of Washi tape let alone seen it. Maybe it's not available in Australia. Anyhow well done and it's actually a great idea and would be perfect for a family with kids seeing they have so many activities etc.

  6. This is really a fun idea..very smart :)

  7. very original idea! I love the concept and the colours...

  8. What a great use of an old window. I have not used the tape yet either. I think you came up with a clever idea. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  9. That is incredible! I love it! Thanks for sharing at the Pomp Party! Pinning to the Pomp Party board!

    Found you via Tatertots and Jello!

  11. This is a super cute and practical idea (love that). Would you believe I have never seen washi tape in person? I know, it's so sad. Still waiting for Target to come to Canada, lol. Thanks for sharing at our party this week.

  12. That is great! I just bought some Washi Tape on Etsy...need to try something like this! So cute! Dry erase markers on glass...of course! So smart! Happy to be a new follower. I found you on Homework with Carolyn!

  13. What a cute idea! It looks so cheery and fun.

  14. Love, love, love washi tape! This is so cute! Thanks for linking up to "Strut Your Stuff Saturday!" Hopefully we'll see you tomorrow at 8pm MDT for this week's party! :) -The Sisters

  15. Adorable! I haven't joined the washi tape movement yet, but now that I know I can get it at Target, I'm signing up.

  16. What a great way to dress up a plain white space! This would look great in my kitchen. I'd love for you to share this post at my link party.
