That said, here is a beautiful DIY Pantone Calendar to help you get organized for the new year:

For supplies you will need a large picture frame (I used a 11×14 frame I bought from Riteaid), paint samples (they are free at any paint or hardware store) and dry erase markers.

Step 1: Cut down your paint sample pieces so that they fit evenly in the frame and extra borders have been removed.

Step 2: Place a white background into your frame to build your pantone paint pieces on (I used the back of the sheet the frame came with).

Step 3: Layout the paint samples so that they gradually fade from one color to the next.
