Hey everyone! For this blog I decided to try out the DIY whiteboard. I saw these and I thought that they would be really cool to use as a decoration in somebody’s room,and they are also useful. I like decorating stuff in my room, especially when the decorations have a purpose, so this doubles as both! This is also really cheap and easy to make; it took me less than 15 minutes to make two of them.
First you need to find two picture frames that you like, some colorful paper, and some whiteboard markers. You could easily get all of this stuff at Michaels or Target or most other stores. You will also need a ruler and a pair of scissors. I took the back off of the picture frame and then measured the size of the glass where the picture would be shown. Then I cut the paper to fit these measurements and put it in the frame and put the back of the frame back on. These ended up looking really cute and are a great way to add some decorations to your room!
Next, just add what you want to your “white board” by drawing or writing on the glass with the white board markers. You could use them to remind you of any events coming up or help you keep track of stuff you need to get done.
You could also make these into some calendars that you could also write on. All you would need to do is put some paint color sample strips inside the frame instead of the paper. Each little paint sample square will represent a day of the month. You can use the whiteboard markers to write the days of the month on the squares and any important dates.
Even if you don’t decide to write anything on them, the frames will still look really cute with the paper in them. These will always turn out right, and they are very easy, fast, and cheap to make, with really cute results. These would be a great gift to anyone you know if you are not sure what to get them. Also, the fact they you made it yourself will make it an even better gift. If you want to keep them for yourself, they would be great to put in an office or on your desk at home.
I hope you enjoy them if you decide to make them!!
