April is on its way out and we are continuing our printable calendar series with our free May 2017 calendar. As with all the monthly printables in our 2017 calendar, our May calendar features a photo of a lovely crepe paper flower to celebrate the season. This month we are showcasing the gorgeous Icelandic Poppies! We made these blooms using our extra fine crepe in Coral for more of an understated, dusty color, but they would also be beautiful in Chiffon or Vanilla. Use our template and tutorial to bring an arrangement of these beauties to life for your warm-weather home decor.
Our May calendar printable is completely editable, so add in your special events and reminders before printing it off. Download and install the free font Arcon to keep the text consistent, then print the calendar off onto white cardstock. If you are living outside of the US, feel free to delete the Mother’s Day holiday. There is also an area for Notes at the bottom of the calendar to write in any reminders throughout the month.
Project Ideas for May
One fun way to use our free May 2017 calendar is by filling it in with DIY projects that you would like to make over the month. The following suggestions are just some inspiration to get you started! May is a wonderful time for flowers, and some of our favorites our peonies and dogwood branches. You can find our peony and dogwood tutorials on the site, or purchase one of our kits with pre-cut petals from JoAnn Stores.
Don’t forget that May means Mother’s Day is coming up! This year it is on May 14th (my birthday!!), and you can browse all of our Mother’s Day projects for gift and decor inspiration. Other special events that you can celebrate in May are Cinco de Mayo and Graduation if you know anyone completing high school or college. Head over to our membership page to start crafting with us, or follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for daily glimpses into what we are up to. Until next time! ~ Lia & Team
