If you want the perfect tabletop décor in your home office, foyer, or even in the living room, a DIY calendar is a good idea. One of the easiest things to do is to stick Post-It notes on the wall, one color for each day of the month. Arrange them in a rectangle and put a big number on the side of each note to indicate the date.
For those who find it too difficult to create a calendar on their own, Shutterfly can help make things easier!
Homemade candles are easy to make, although, it might sound like an intimidating task. You need wax, wick, container, color, fragrance, and pot. Start by melting the wax on the pot.
