Dry erase markers
1. Measure the dimensions of the dry erase board and plan the size of the calendar. Each month will be a 5 x 7 grid of squares or rectangles.
2. Draw the calendar grids with a permanent marker. You can start by measuring and mapping the lines out with dots, to be sure they are parallel.
3. Using wire cutters, clip off the hook at the back of the buttons.
4. Glue magnets to the backs of the buttons and rhinestones.
5. Write the months and dates with dry erase markers.
