Hey girl hey. And boy.
So I’ve seen DIY spring decor videos around Youtube and initially planned on recreating one myself. But then I realized that many of these DIYs were pointless and were just left to the side after Spring so I decided what better way to hit two birds with one stone by making a spring DIY that is both decor and beneficial and also checking off not one, but two, goals off my April Goals. That was a run-on sentence, sorry. 😂
Before we begin, this is a collab with the lovely Mia again. Make sure to check our last post and her blog out if you haven’t already. She’s doing a DIY decor as well so you’ll be getting not one, not three but tw- okay, I need to stop with the commercial tone. 😂 This is more of a personalized board so you can make it however you want but I’ll show you how I did mine for motivation. Anyways, let’s get started.
- Black Foamboard
- Post-It Tabs and Notes
- Trend Pen
- Tape or Glue
- Washi Tape (optional)
- Green Glitter Cardstock
- Chalkboard Stickers and Chalk
- Decoration- Polaroids, flowers..etc (optional)
- You can do this on a white poster but use markers instead.
- My main theme was a To-Do list but yours can be anything else.
Cut out two cardstock rectangles for your To-Do and Done. I thought I purchased the peel off cardstock but turns out I didn’t so I just outlined them with Washi-Tape. 😂
Create a legend. I made mine out of post-it notes and tape so as you can see, I’m being the ultimate DIY queen here. In Green, I put Prayer & Quran and those usually don’t change so I just put them back on To-Do for the next day when I’m done. In Pink, I have School Work & Blog so finishing homework, projects, blog posts etc would be sorted out. For Orange, I have Daily Goals & Challenges so exercise, water goals and health wise things are mainly there. And finally, Other is for everything else like reminders, chores and more.
Bring out your chalkboard stickers and work your way around.
On my far right, I have Monthly Goals which is an exact copy of the ones I show you in my Monthly Wrappers (check out my last one here –
yes, I never stop with the self-promos😂) And yes, I totally just checked off ‘Organize your day girl’.😂😂 I always set goals for myself but then I never remember a lot of them so when it comes to checking how many I accomplished, I’m like…
Under that, I have ‘Upcoming Events’ like birthdays and events. So it’s almost like a calendar. To the left, I have a water tracker because I hardly keep track so that’s handy. Besides that, I have a ‘How Was My Day’ on a scale of 1-10.
*sorry for the very great quality picture, I cropped it from the big one*
Finally, I just made a pocket for the chalk and pencil by folding a square piece of paper in half and taping it. And then I attached the post-it tab booklet to a string and taped it to the board.
Decorate. So for spring, I used coloured chalk to make a floral design. Then, I stuck a flower under the water tracker (which is now dead – r.i.p). And finally, I just taped three polaroids to the bottom which sort of go on the spring theme.
Anddd that’s all for today. *checks off ‘Get Organised, Girl’* *checks off ‘Complete 1+ collabs* 😂 Don’t forget to check out Mia’s DIY post because why read one DIY post when you can read two? 😂 I totally recommend making this because I’m such a forgetful grandma and it’s nice to have things laid out in front of you.
Are you a forgetful grandma? (I was going to say something cheesy like ‘wIlL yOu tRy tHiS dIy?’ but the times I’ve said I’d try something in a comment and haven’t got to it yet is pretty insane. 😂 So here’s your question of the day.)
I hope you all enjoyed this post and I’ll see you in my next one.
