Download, print and cut out a template or create your own.
Trace the hexagon onto the back of the self-adhesive vinyl. You’ll need three for the name of the month, 25 for the weekdays and 10 for weekends. Cut out the shapes using the craft knife.
Measure and mark where the calendar will go on the wall; it will take up a space of about 1.2 x 1.6m.
Use the spirit level to help you position the hexagons in straight lines on the wall. We also made a 15mm-wide spacer to help us keep the negative space between the shapes the same.
Remove the backing and smooth the vinyl out from one side so it sticks evenly on the wall with no air bubbles.
Use whiteboard markers to write the name of the month and the dates in the hexagons, then fill them in with appointments and events.
- You can create the same effect with blackboard vinyl or you could even paint the hexagons on the wall with blackboard paint.
- Alternatively, you can use acrylic wall paint in the colour of your choice and cover it with a clear blackboard coating.
