Back when I was in college, I had a whiteboard in my room which I used to keep track of assignments and practice math equations. Recently I realized that I could use a whiteboard more than ever nowadays to keep track of everything from household chores to video tutorials I am preparing for the site.
And then I realize that it’s the perfect craft to share with you because it is actually super easy and fast to make your own whiteboard out of simple supplies. In this video tutorial, I will show you how it’s done step-by-step so you can create your own.
How to Make a Whiteboard From a Picture Frame
For this project, I decided to use a picture frame for the whiteboard. I did this to make the project easy and to give the finished result of a homey look.
How to Make a Whiteboard with Household Items
You need almost no supplies to make this project. The only tool you need to work with is a pair of scissors. You’ll also want to have at least one dry erase marker and eraser handy for when the project is completed and ready to use.
You will require only two other materials. These include a picture frame and some decorative paper. While I went with a basic white frame, you can choose any style or size of frame that you want.
I printed out a simple polka dot pattern for the whiteboard’s backdrop, but here too, you can go with anything you want. Just make sure it is not too busy and that the colors are not too bold, or it will be hard to see what you have written or drawn on your whiteboard.
Have fun with your customization. No two DIY whiteboards look the same!
Have Fun Writing on Your DIY Whiteboard
What is awesome about a whiteboard is that you can do absolutely anything with it once you have finished making it.
Here are a few suggested ways to use a DIY whiteboard:
- Write recipes in your kitchen.
- Display assignments in your dorm room.
- Share scheduling and notes at your family command center.
- Hang in your child’s bedroom as a toy.
