Valentine Dry Erase Picture Frames for Your Fridge

Pin It So, its hump day. I'm told that its called that because its the "middle" of the week, and not for any other reason... Who really knows.

 So I've been busy with a few things... We had my sons four month pediatric appointment on Monday, and there are lots of changes a bound! Adding some solid foods to his diet, and a new sleep schedule... Moving to 2-3 naps a day and an early bed time where he is supposed to learn how to sleep 12 hours through the night... its gonna be a lot of work but I'm pretty excited for it!


Ive also covered my dining room table with my crafty mess... A few projects this month for Valentines Day... I'm not usually a decorator for Valentines, but this year I decided I would do a few things...

This week it is Dollar Store picture frames made into dry erase boards and kitchen towels with cute fabric. You'll have to stop by on Friday and check out the kitchen towel project! It has something to do with this fabric:

For the dry erase board I gathered:
Two picture frames
Scrap Book paper
Dry erase marker
Paper Cutter
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

I found these little frames, and was going to spray paint them a different color, but for this project I left them red. Perhaps later they will get a coat of paint...

I cut my scrap paper to fit the size of the frames. I love this paper cutter. I don't even know how I got along without it before, seeing as how I cant cut a straight line. Yep.

Now you're going to glue on your magnets with the hot glue gun. Make sure the glue is dry before you stick them up on your fridge. Just sayin...

Now insert your paper, and write whatever you want! Tehe. It took me like, 5 minutes. Simple, cute, done.

For the month of February, the Hubster and I are going to be exchanging "I love you because..." on these little babies. He doesn't know that yet... But that's what we'll be doing.

Hope you liked this easy peasy little project. Now go create! Do it.

Lemme know how it turns out if you try it!
