Repurpose a bicycle wheel with plywood, chalkboard and sticker labels to make this creative DIY.
DIY Bicycle Chalkboard Calendar
Home Decor


  • Bicycle wheel without the tire (20” Diamater)
  • 8” Plywood
  • hot glue
  • chalkboard
  • sticker labels


  1. Start with the wheel without the tire (buy one or use an old one)
  2. Count the triangles on the wheel
  3. Trace the area of one of the inverted triangles to form a pattern
  4. Trace the area slightly larger so you have a little over-lap over the spokes
  5. After you have your pattern cut from paper, trace onto plywood 9 times (or however many triangles your wheel has)
  6. Saw the triangles and sand the rough edges
  7. Spray paint with chalkboard paint and let dry
  8. Add chalkboard labels to the top of each nine sections
  9. Write the days of the week and have 2 additional triangles for special notes
  10. Hot glue the chalkboard triangles over the spokes to hold them in place
  11. Cover the bolt with metal sleeves (this makes the wheel spin)
  12. Cut a piece of wood to use as the back of the calendar
  13. Drill a hole large enough to screw the bolt into
  14. Attach the wheel to the wood with a bolt and then attach the board directly to a stud in the wall
