Create a Massive Calendar for Your Wall with Photos

If your wall needs decorating and you have a lot of time on your hands (and we mean a lot), you can try making a giant calendar for you wall with photos. All you need to do is go photo-hunting for numbers, days of the week, and filler squares. Then print out the photos as squares and arrange them on your wall based on the current month.

While shooting the images and printing them out is a lot of work (and a lot of fun), updating the calendar every month is what will be extremely time-consuming in the long run. However, if you’re up for it, this is a fun and creative way to spice up your wall with photo awesomeness.

What does a rainbow mean to you? An interesting atmospheric phenomena…. gay pride… the 42nd Infantry Division? To me a rainbow screams, “Polaroid Corporation!”. Even when Polaroid was actually making cameras, the camera straps were disappointingly plain vanilla. Polaroid missed a critical branding opportunity! In this tutorial, I’ll attempt to make a new camera strap for my Polaroid 100 camera by recycling rainbow colored luggage belts.
