Flip-Clock Wooden DIY Desk Calendar

It’s a new year which for many of us means it’s time for a new calendar! This DIY desktop calendar takes its styling from the flip-clock beauties of yesteryear, adding a retro touch to the modern workspace.

What we need

– Unfinished Wood Block Calendar – Acrylic Black Paint – Paint Brush – Wood Grain Contact Paper – Printable Template – 1″ White Vinyl Number Stickers – 1/4″ White Vinyl Alphabet Stickers – Scissors

Let's make Flip-Clock Wooden DIY Desk Calendar


Paint the wooden cubes and rectangular blocks completely black with acrylic paint.

Once the black paint is completely dry center the 1″ white number stickers on each face of the cubes. Cube #1 will have numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Cube #2 will have numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 7, 8.


Once the cube numbers are on, add the month names using the 1/4″ vinyl letters to the skinny rectangles. There are 12 sides so one for each month!


Print out the 3-part template on computer paper, and tape the three sheets together. The template shown in the images is the original template so it’ll look a little different than yours!


Cut out the template and lay it out on the backside of the contact paper roll. Trace the template onto the contact paper.


Cut out the shape in contact paper and fold inward along all the dotted lines.


Tear off the left “arm” and the middle portion of the contact paper backing. Center the calendar “house” on the middle rectangle as shown above.
