Turn a Picture Frame Into a Dry Erase Board

Today, I am showing you how to make a crafty dry erase board. This is by far the easiest craft project I’ve ever made. I have notes and note boards placed all over my house. I’m constantly making lists and writing reminders. I knew a pretty DIY erase board would be the perfect addition to my living room, and it will help me keep track of my ideas throughout the week.

Supplies I Used:

  • 11″ x 14″ Picture Frame
  • Fabric
  • White Chalk Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Dry Erase Marker
  • Stapler

Steps:

1. Remove the backing and glass from the frame, then paint the frame (optional). Let the frame dry for about 1-2 hours.

2. Iron the fabric to remove any wrinkles.

3. Cut the fabric and staple it to the frame. Make sure the staples aren’t noticeable by stapling very close to the edges of the backing that will be hidden by the frame.

4. For the last step, simply put the frame back together. It’s now ready to use with a dry erase marker.

I’m not sure if I want to hang my dry erase board vertically or horizontally, but what I do know is that I love the beautiful colors on the fabric. This board is so pretty and girly. It’s perfect for Spring and Summer!

Decorating with Yellow

I love decorating with neutral colors, but lately it seems I am drawn to yellow decor. This week, I took some yellow fabric and yellow spray paint and made a couple of quick craft projects.

1. Repurposed Coffee Container

My husband saves containers for me because he knows I like to reuse them for craft projects. I knew that this container would look perfect with a little paint and some flowers.

It took about three coats of spray paint to cover the container. I love how bright and cheery it looks!

I added a bouquet of flowers to finish the look.

2. Fabric Wrapped Heart Clock

I made this clock last year. Unfortunately, either my son or my husband knocked it over and broke it (no one has confessed to the crime). I hate throwing my craft projects away, so I decided to give the clock a makeover.

I removed the clock parts, then I painted over the numbers on the wood heart so they wouldn’t show through the fabric. Next, I cut out a piece of the fabric into a heart shape and adhered it to the wood heart with Fabric Mod Podge. Finally, I added the parts back to the clock.

Yellow is such a happy color. It immediately puts me in the mood for warmer weather. I can’t wait to add the color to other parts of my house.
