Mini Glitter Dry Erase Frame!!!

I think it is kind of silly that I put together the gold glitter with this fabric because it is something I would have chosen as a teen ager but I really think it is cute! And you can’t tell me that this wouldn’t catch your attention on the way out the door.

You must think I forget everything with all these message boards, calendars, to do lists and so on.

I do.

Don’t judge.

;)

But anyways….

here is how I did it.

You need:

  • Old frame
  • Mod Podge
  • Glitter
  • Fabric to fit frame
  • Dry erase marker

First I took everything apart


Next, I put the Mod Podge on the frame, then glitter the heck out of it.

A common step on this blog.



Then Mod Podge the BACK of the glass:


Next add the fabric FRONT side DOWN to the Mod Podge. When you pour out way more than you needed like I did then it soaks through and saves you the step of applying it again. Just squish out all the extra to the edges.


Then, after it dries, cut it down and place back in the frame, glass side down and add the back.



Now it is done! It is all ready to have messages written on it with any standard dry erase marker- or for a more smudge resistant, but still temporary message, use an overhead marker that wipes away with a damp cloth.


What do you think?!!?

Of course you could also (and I probably will) make ones that fit any decor like a white pattern fabric with a black glitter frame or white glitter with turquoise fabric… anything really.

Look like too much work for you? Enter my giveaway over at Mine for the Making and you can have up to four chances to win this one, and two other prizes!!

    I linked from my site to yours so readers could the different things they can do with this idea:
