DIY Fall Desktop Calendar

Fall Desktop Calendar | happy together This month’s Cricut Design Space Star challenge was for us to create items for organization/celebrations. My team went with “Falling for Fall” for our theme. I created two projects to enter this time again with this desktop calendar falling into the organization category. I have been seeing small desktop calendars growing in popularity and wanted to create my own. I logged into Cricut Design Space™ and started creating.

Then I picked out a shape/picture for each month. September got a leaf, October got a pumpkin, and November got a turkey. I simply glued these on with a glue stick. The month numbers are big enough that they can still be striked through with a pen or even covered with a small sticker to show that day has passed. I used a piece of wood from our garage for the stand and simply cut a small slit in the top center for the paper to stand in. It would be cute to use a piece of a log for this as well.
