Welcome to the Crafty Dry Erase Board Tutorial!  This is a simple project that you can do with things laying around your house.  The only thing you may need to purchase is a dry erase marker.

You will need:

  • Picture frame with glass (any size you want, but larger will be easier to use)
  • Dry erase marker
  • Paper


Open the back of your frame.

Verify that there is glass in it.  The dry erase marker works on the glass.

If you don’t already know the size, measure the space for your background.  You can either measure the glass, or the paper that was behind it.

Create your artwork.  You can use wallpaper, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, digital artwork, something hand drawn, or anything that you like.  Lighter backgrounds will help the dry erase marker show up better.  You can make as many of these as you like.  They are interchangable.

Put your picture in and close the back.
