5 Minute DIY Whiteboard

We are currently in a middle of a kitchen remodel and I am constantly on a lookout for decor and organization ideas. One thing I had in mind for our kitchen was to get a cute little dry erase board for our fridge to write memos, grocery lists, menus or my favorite “honey-do lists”.

I searched for one online and at my local Target, but everything I found was either too bulky or pricey. So, I decided to make my own.

I love to do DIYs if it means saving money and still getting what I want.

In my case, I only spent $0.39 on some fancy paper and had everything else at home. I mean seriously, it doesn’t get cheaper than this and did I mention that it only took me 5 minutes!


Here is What you need:



  • Fancy Paper (Scrapbook paper works the best)
  • Picture Frame (Can buy one at Dollar Store)
  • Dry Erase Markers
  • Scissor
  • Magnet Strips or Command Strips




I had a 5×7 picture frame laying around which was the perfect size for what I was looking for. I took out the glass from the frame and traced it on my marvelous scrapping paper. (Lately, I’ve been really into floral designs)



Next cut out your traced on rectangle and insert it into your picture frame.

My frame had a stand on the back of it, which I had to break off.

Next, stick on your magnets or command strip to the back side of your frame. I tried the magnet strips first but my frame was too heavy and it kept sliding down the fridge.

So, I decided to use a command strip instead, of course, now my board is stationary and immovable! But, I’m alright with that.


I really love how it turned out!


Also, I like that I can always change the design, it’s very versatile!

If you decide to do this quick little project, please share your end result! I would love to check out your dry erase board!
