Wipe Off Weekly Menu Board

by LITTLE BIRDIES on AUGUST 10, 2010

I am a meal planner. I refuse to go grocery shopping without my week’s worth of meals planned out and list made. (It’s either that or wander aimlessly around the grocery store for two hours and then make ten more trips back during the week to get things I forgot.) Once I get the groceries unloaded, I usually forget what I planned for, so I put together this super easy wipe-off menu board to keep track of what’s for dinner each night!

Wipe-Off Menu Board Tutorial

Supplies:

  • Picture frame with glass front (I love these 12×12 frames I found at Ben Franklin for only $7!)
  • Piece of patterned scrapbook paper to fit in your frame (mine’s also 12×12)
  • Optional: Vinyl cut letters for each day of the week (you could always just hand write them)
  • Dry-erase marker

1. Put your patterned paper inside the frame. Replace the back. That’s pretty much it. :)

2. If you wanted to stop here, you could hand-write your days of the week on the glass, or use it as a message board / to-do list. I love that these frames can stand or hang on the wall so you can do whatever works best in your space!

3. Use a paper towel or cloth to easily erase dry-erase marker off the glass.

4. If you want to get fancy and go a step further, you can add vinyl lettering for the days of the week. I cut these letters with my Silhouette machine, using Creating Keepsakes “Woodbine Swashes” font. (Try not to notice how crooked “Sunday” is. I didn’t notice until after the picture was taken. Luckily, it’s easy to fix!)

Now everyone in the family knows what’s for dinner each week!

I decided my frame would look better black in my kitchen, so I spray painted it black. The best part about this project is that it is SO easy to change the paper if you decide to change your decor, or if you just get tired of it. So you’ll really use it for years to come!

Also as far as picture frames she mentions one for $7 but I *bet* you can get one at Wal-Mart for that or less.
