Since school has just started, right now is the best time to find the whiteboards on sale. Then there’s the fact that they are so, well white, I thought the board could use some color. Here is my version of the popular craft… Washi Tape Dry Erase Calendar!

I am trying to keep a calendar going for the blog, but every time I start one I forget to write anything down on it. So, I figured if I place it right in front of me I won’t lose track of time and dates.

Now just what is this Washi Tape? Washi tape is decorative Japanese masking tape made from rice paper. It is a transparent tape that you can easily tear, stick and reposition. Which makes it really easy to create this craft. The lines already made on the calendar help too.

Easy Craft Washi Schedule

Washi Tape Dry Erase Calendar



Washi Tape & Fabric Tape

Place the first washi tape stripes, orange stripes, vertically over the lines already made into the board. Trim with an X-Acto knife and smooth the edges of the tape down. If you get the stripe uneven just lift and replace the tape.

Trim Washi Tape with X-acto Knife

Add the Poppy washi tape horizontally over the orange dot tape. Place the Pomegranate Chevron washi tape horizontally over the top lines on the calendar. Add the silver glitter Duck tape to the edge of the frame.

Duck Fabric Tape Dry Erase Magnet

Add two 2 inch pieces of the Duck Fabric tape over the plastic magnet, trim with an X-Acto knife and smooth edges down. And that’s it, an instant custom calendar and a super easy kid friendly craft!

    Is the washi tape easy to remove when you want to change it?

      Hi Tara,
      Yes, washi tape is basically masking tape. Super easy to remove and change colors for each month.

    First I really like the idea of this project! Second and totally random, I love the color on the wall with the desk and lamp when you show the final product. I have been hunting for a similar color would you mind sharing what color it is and from who?

      Hi Amy,
      Glad you liked this project! As for the paint well I painted this room (my former playroom, now workshop) seven years ago. I have a couple of cans of this paint in my basement, they are both from paint chips by Benjamin Moore, matched by Lowes Valspar so the labels are codes. I do not have the paint chips anymore either, so finding the color is impossible. I will tell you it is a vintage teal I was going for. I saw a vintage surfing poster in Hobby Lobby and matched to it. Sorry I could not be more help! Thanks for reading!
