DIY Dry Erase Frame
I’m a list-maker. My husband teases me relentlessly for this. I not only make lists, but draw little boxes next to them so I can check off the things that have been done. I sometimes put things I’ve already completed on my list and check them off just to make myself feel a little more accomplished (because let’s face it, it feels good to put a check mark in those boxes). And what better way for the self-admitted list addict to organize her lists? A dry erase board. These DIY dry erase frames are easy, functional, and they stand on their own. So if you’re like me, grab a picture frame and some scrapbook paper and make your own dry erase board.
Materials for DIY Dry Erase Frames
- Picture frame (any size)
- Scrapbook paper (I didn’t have any that suited my needs, so I printed this adorable polka dot scrapbook paper from The Girl Creative)
- Dry erase marker
How to Make Dry Erase Frames
You can use any size frame for this project, just keep in mind what your needs are. If you want a dry erase board for long grocery lists, use a larger frame, but if you want it for a short to-do list, you could use a 4″ x 6″ frame.
Remove the back of the frame and the glass. Place the glass on top of your scrapbook paper and trace around it with a pencil.
Cut along the lines you just traced. You should be left with scrapbook paper that is the same size as your glass insert.
Reassemble your frame as if the scrapbook paper was your picture. (It should go frame, glass, scrapbook paper, then backing.
The glass will serve as a dry erase surface and you can write directly on the frame with a dry erase marker. Use it to make grocery lists, to do lists, and more!
When you’re done with your list, use a paper towel and the dry erase marker wipes right off.
