Make Your Own Dry Erase Board

This is absolutely, hands down, the easiest project I have ever done!  I love making lists, so I always keep a dry erase board on my desk.  The only problem is, they aren’t very pretty.  So, I decided to give something a try.  I grabbed a few old picture frames that I had lying around, and made my own!

All you need is a picture frame, some scrapbooking paper, wallpaper, or fabric, and anything else you would like to use for embellishments.  I always have ribbon lying around, and Kate had these cute flowers that she uses to make Flower Hair Clips.  You just take the back out of the frame, place your paper and embellishments on the backing, just like you would put a photo in, and snap the back again.  You can hang it with ribbon, or just hang on a nail or hook!  Use dry erase markers to write messages or make lists.  Wipe clean with a paper towel or eraser!

I made this one to put out on my front porch…do you think the solicitors will actually read it?  Doubtful, but at least it’s cute!  These would be perfect for a teacher gift or as a gift for a little girl who likes to play school, and you can even change them out according to the season!

Keep it real!

    This is such an awesome idea. So, the dry eraser works on normal paper? I’ve always thought that you need special paper to be able to erase.

    This is such an awesome project. So you can erase the marker off of regular paper? I’ve always thought that you need a special board.
