Dry Erase Frame - Easiest Project Ever

I saw this project on Michelle's blog at Sweet Something Design and knew I had to try it.  It's functional, easy to make, and really cute.  Perfect combo.

All you need is a frame, spray adhesive, fabric of your choice, and a dry erase pen.

I had this old frame in my stash.  It doesn't have a hanger on the back, but that's OK.  I'll just prop it up in the kitchen.  I took out the carboard and sprayed it with adhesive.



Then I took my cheap-o ($.70) fabric and laid it on the cardboard and tucked the edges around back.

Then I put the frame back together, and voila, a dry erase frame. 


Our Dia del Muerto guy really adds to it, doesn't it?

You can just write on the glass with a dry erase pen (I got 3 for $1 at the Dollar Store) and wipe it off.  Super easy!

And here's my helper. I believe this project took 7 minutes, and that included washing the spray adhesive off my hands. I did this entire project while stirring supper and calling out spelling words.




And, I am not sure you need fabric - why not just scrapbook paper cut to size?  I like this look for the fall.  Maybe I'll go with a red or green in December. 

Love an easy project!  Now if I can just get myself together to have an organized supper for the family every night!

I'm linking up!
