Dry Erase Boards

I found these frames in a local after market store and found them to be the perfect size for dry erase boards.  They are very simple to make.  Just pick your paper pack that you want to use and using the cardboard that comes on the back of the frame layout your design.  You may have some paper trimming to do on the sides or bottom depending on your frame.  Do not forget to put the glass back into the frame.  This is going to be your “dry erase” surface and can be used with any dry erase markers.

For Kaela’s Board I added stitching to the title to make it a little more custom make for her.  I also added her favorite photos on the bottom half.  It hangs just next to her desk for quick reminders about chores or upcoming assignments.  Both of these boards were made with the Level 2 Notebook paper. 

To change the photos or paper just take the frame apart and place new photos and papers to keep your board up to date and looking fresh.  I love this idea so much that I made one for my mother and as soon as I find the right kind of frame my mother in law will be getting one too.


For mine, I wanted it to be more of a note station.  We have it hanging just before you go out the door and it is perfect for the “hey do not forget list” or  notes between Kaela and myself.  Kaela loves being able to leave little love notes on for me when I wake up, today it is a Christmas Tree, a couple of days ago it said to “leave me alone” so you just never know what you are going to get with a 13 year old.
