Month menu is the QMenu object child of calendar, it appear when user press on the month name so that user can select the month, setting skin to QCalendarWidget is not like setting skin to the other widgets, calendar is widget which has many child i.e component we can set skin to independent component as well. Skin is basically background image which adjust its size according to the size of the place

In order to do this we will use setStyleSheet method with the QCalendarWidget object, below is the style sheet code

QCalendarWidget QMenu
{
border-image : url(image.png);
}

Below is the implementation




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import *
import sys
  
  
# QCalendarWidget Class
class Calendar(QCalendarWidget):
  
    # constructor
    def __init__(self, parent = None):
        super(Calendar, self).__init__(parent)
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
  
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QCalendarWidget object
        # as Calendar class inherits QCalendarWidget
        self.calendar = Calendar(self)
  
        # setting cursor
        self.calendar.setCursor(Qt.PointingHandCursor)
  
        # setting size of the calendar
        self.calendar.resize(350, 240)
  
        # move the calendar
        self.calendar.move(10, 10)
  
        # setting stylesheet
        # adding skin to the months menu
        self.calendar.setStyleSheet("QCalendarWidget QMenu"
                                    "{"
                                    "background-image : url(image.png);"
                                    "}")
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
