Crafternoon Project #2: Dry Erase Frames

“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.”
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf

The Crafternoon project that surprisingly took the most time was the Dry Erase Frames. It was tough to find just the right color scheme and embellishments.

In the weeks before the party, I scoured thrift stores looking for cheap frames. One afternoon I hit the jackpot... and two coats of spray paint later, I had an assortment of different frames for my guests to choose from (and stayed within my budget!). I pulled out my scrapbooking paper stash, printed up some vellum templates [Menu, To-Do List, and Calendar], and let everybody have it.

Dry Erase Frames
What you need:
  • Picture frames with glass and back
  • Vellum templates
  • Scrapbook paper and embellishments
  • Scissors/paper cutter
  • Double-sided tape
  • Dry erase pen
  • [Optional] Sticky back Velcro
What to do:
  1. Pick a frame.
  2. Pick a vellum template (or not!).
  3. Trace the outline of glass onto the back of paper of your choice.
  4. Cut out outline so that it will fit in your frame.
  5. Use double-sided tape to attach other papers and embellishments, if you wish.
  6. Fit in frame.
  7. Draw on glass with the dry erase pen.
  8. [Optional] Attach one side of sticky-back Velcro to the dry erase pen... and attach the other side of the Velcro to the side of the frame.
