Spoonflower presents2023 Calendar Wall Hangings Design Challenge

Winners announced 

Calendar wall hangings and tea towels are a popular go-to gift each holiday season. What inspiring illustrations will you create to symbolize the coming year?


It’s fun to dream about what possibilities a bright new year can usher in, and that may be a starting place to inspire a motif for your entry. The art you create is entirely up to you and if you need a calendar file to get started, click here!

Have a calendar tea towel design from last year in your design library? It can’t be submitted for this weekly challenge as you must create something new for each challenge, but it’s a good reminder to upload a revision with 2023’s dates for future customers. Cheers to a new year!
