Picture Frame Message Board Tutorial


I made this dry erase picture frame message board a while ago but wanted to wait until after our Super Saturday to post the tutorial.  This is supper easy and a fun way to leave messages to people in your family.  I personally am going to put it on our nightstand in hopes Bob wants to write me a message while I am sleeping and he leaves for work.

Materials Needed:
5"x7" picture frame
wide rule notebook paper
scrap material about 11/2" by 18"
hot glue gun
dry erase marker


 1) Open up your frame,  take out the stock photo and use it to cut the same size lined paper.  Put the paper in the frame.
2) Tie a knot at the end of one of your fabric strips.
 3) Twist it around itself placing a dot of hot glue every few twists to make sure it stays.
4) Cut the end when your flower is as large as you want it.  Glue the very end underneath the flower.
5) Glue the flowers onto your frame.



6) Glue buttons to the flowers.

Write your message and enjoy.
