Dry Erase Board Tutorial

So i thought this would be a cute idea to use as a menu board, or to do list. You can always change out the fabric for a completely different look.
For this project you will need;
A frame- from the thrift store would be the recycled and cheap way to go :)
Fabric- Walmart has these "quick cuts" fabric swatches they are size 18''x21'' so if you find a frame that size you can use one of those, they are only $1. Also, if your fabric is see through you may want to use a solid fabric behind it so you can see though it. 
Dry Erase Marker
Adhesive- I used Aleene's Tacky Glue, but you could use a hot glue gun too.

First i layed out my fabric and put the picture that came in the frame behind it and started glueing the sides.

Glueing all the sides/edges.

Place the fabric covered picture back in the frame, behind the glass and you've got yourself a dry erase board! A black dry erase marker would have looked much better, but blue was the best i had.

Project break down

A frame- $1.50
Fabric- $1
Dry Erase Marker-already had
Adhesive- already had
Total $2.50

My dry erase board cost $2.50 because i already had some of the supplies but even if you had to buy everything this project wouldn't cost more than $10
