Dollar Store Crafting ~ Dry Erase List

I've seen a lot of posts on Pinterest lately of simple, quick crafts that looked great. The projects were made with ordinary objects, which got me thinking about starting a segment on this blog of "Dollar Store Crafting". I'm sure I'm not the first person to try this idea, but I thought it would be fun. So, without further ado, my first Dollar Store Crafting project!

If you've been a follower of my blog you may remember the weekly family planner that I made. This uses an 8 opening frame to represent a title and the 7 days of the week. You can write on glass with a dry erase marker and then wipe off.

I saw THIS post on Pinterest and thought it was a fun, quick, economical idea that would be a great gift. I hit a local Dollar Tree and picked up several black frames that were $1 each. I cut regular notebook paper to fit the frame and then added a piece of white cardstock behind the notebook paper.

I tied a dry erase marker (3 pack for $1) to the back of the frame with twine. I added some ribbon to the front (from my stash) and called it a finished project!

This is a fun, easy, quick, and very economical project that is sure to be a hit. I hope you enjoyed my first "Dollar Store Crafting" episode. Check back soon for another great project!
