You may remember my photo frame dry-erase menu board that I was using for my weekly menu back in Seattle. Well, since my menu board didn't make the trip to Iowa (don't worry, it's in storage!), I had to find a new menu board idea. Otherwise I forget what I planned for dinner that week--seriously. I was inspired by the Notes plate over at Wonderfully Wordy at Christmastime (she has GREAT ideas, and you can buy the cut vinyl from her, but her shop is closed for the summer). I pinned it to my Crafty Ideas board on Pintrest and came across it again the other day. LOVE Pintrest! This cute dry-erase board costs less than $5 to make, and is great for menus, to-do lists, or just love notes to your sweetie! Here's how you can make a dry-erase board out of a plate, too.
Dry-Erase Menu Plate Tutorial
*Plate - I like square so it's easier to write on (found this at Walmart for $4ish)
*Vinyl words (I cut mine on my Silhouette machine)
*Plate stand (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
Cut your words and any embellishments out of vinyl. I used the Pharmacy font. Carefully adhere it to your plate. I say carefully because it's awfully easy to put it on crooked (please try not to notice--I'm going to fix it tomorrow)!
Now you can write your weekly menu on it and simply erase it with a paper towel next week. And it sure ups the cute factor in the kitchen!
