Find & Fix it Friday: How to make your own Paint Strip Calendar

Howdy zesters!! I feel like August and September are those months were we usually get our “organization” mindset on. With school starting and routines getting back into the motion after summer it only seems fitting to make a calendar to keep your head on straight. But not just any calendar, it has got to be cute and zested!!! Have you seen all the uses of paint strips?? Gotta love those natural ombre’s and color schemes that you can snag at your local Home Depot, Lowe’s or Miners. Let’s get to zestin’…

Supplies:

  • Frame
  • Expo Marker
  • Paint strips
  • Scissors/paper cutter
  • Hot glue gun
  • Craft or wrapping paper
