If it’s just the calendar itself that you’d like to upcycle, and not any particular images or words from the calendar, then origami may be what you want to do.
These recycled origami hearts from the Paper Source blog don’t rely on a particular size of paper, so anything from your page-a-day desk calendar to your giant wall calendar will suit. If you start folding in your spare time as soon as you’ve upgraded your calendars to the new 2012 edition, then you’ll have a bowlful of origami hearts to hand out well in advance of Valentine’s Day.

Coaster was definitely my first tought, but having 365 tiles stashed in your drawer my not be very efficient.
Maybe cover the day of the week part with “dry erase” tape (is there such a thing?) and use the pages as a perpetual calendar.
