DIY Dry Erase Picture Frames

Pin It
Need an extra place to write a reminder note, your homework assignments, or even current standards you may be working on? Check out these simple, yet cute dry erase boards!

 

 

 

 

 

Items to Gather:

  • non-expensive picture frames (can be bought at the dollar store, I found mine at Wal-Mart on clearance).  

  • a variety of 12x12 scrapbook paper
  • scissors or paper cutter
  • double sided tape or 2 way adhesive
  •  
     
     
     

Instructions:

1. Cut your scrapbook paper to the size of the picture frame you purchased


2. Optional: Using the glue or adhesive secure the scrapbook paper to the picture page or cardboard included in the frame.


3. Place the paper into the frame. 



4. Continue on all frames
5. Hang where desired, and using your dry erase marker leave messages, reminders, homework assignments, or even standards for your students to view! 




*The idea for this project did come from Pinterest. However, when looking for the original link I did come across quite a few of the links taking me to spam, so please be careful!


Other Tips/Suggestions:

1. Gather a variety of sizes when it comes to the picture frames, this will make the display a little more appealing to the eye.
2. Use lighter scrapbook paper if using a black dry erase marker, there needs to be a good contrast.
3. Use command strips to attach them to your cinder block walls, therefore not only do you have a new dry erase message center, but it will also add color to those boring walls! 
4. If these will be used as permanent homework boards or reminder boards...you can use vinyl lettering and label each frame accordingly. 



Best of Luck!
