DIY Photo Display: Old Calender + Old Window Frame

This is one of those projects that happened to me and it was so cute and fun that I have to share! I'm always inspired by my super talented DIY brides and I finally found something I could make. (And you can too!) It's my first time posting a DIY so please feel free to ask me any anything! In case I left something out..

I stumbled on this image of old black and white photos hanging on the old window frame and fell in love. You can see how to make that one Talia Christine's Blog. A few months later, my boyfriend found some perfectly old, rackety radtasical old window frames and saved them for me. (I didn't even tell him about that image! He's the best, I know.) I thought about doing almost the exact same thing as the image, until I came up with the idea to use pictures of me and my boyfriend instead. But how would I display the them in a fun and different way?

I had an old desk calender from Paper Source that I loved and didn't want to get rid of. I thought it might look good to put the images where the date was and use it as a frame. Since it was our first year dating, I would put one photo of us from every month. Yes! It was perfect.

I hope you love the idea and have as much fun making this as I did! It could totally work for weddings as a photo display or table seating chart.. Many more ideas to build upon!

Old desk calender from Paper Source Hanging clips from Ikea or Michael's When you cut the month out, you can can save the title of the month and tape it on and have a corresponding photo. That's what I did in the last image here: Then you just clip and hang and you're done! I just used push pins to secure the string. Super easy! This is what it looks like in my house above my favorite mid century modern cabinet on the left. And my favorite month on the right. I made this for my boyfriend for Christmas but didn't finish so I gave it to him on Valentine's. And it's still at my house. I think I secretly made it for myself! I've also used Polariods on my old window frames. You can see more on the Vintage Bridal Show Post.
