one craft..many possibilities

I've seen burlap dry erase boards around lately.
*edited to add...Thanks Jen at Craft-O-Maniac for the link to her dry erase board. 
And might I say...she's got the lead on rockin' Halloween decorations :) 
If you've posted one..please let me know - I'd love to see them.
I found this simple frame at Wal-Mart ($3.00).  
I had the burlap leftover from my holiday table runner.

Got out my hot glue gun & went to work.  I glued the burlap to the mat that came with the frame..flipped it over and put it back under the glass.

less than 15 minutes later..I had a dry erase board.
*only use dry-erase markers...I've learned the hard way*

a to-do list perhaps?

or the opposite of a 'welcome' sign

or maybe a 'menu' board

The possibilities are endless.  
Make little ones to use as table numbers...paint the frame & decorate it to make a cute 'chore chart' for your kids...decorate the frame with Halloween themed stuff and you've got a blank canvas for a 'trick-or-treat'/'BOO'/'goblins live here' sign.

Its fun huh? I am the one that made the burlap dry erase board... others have done scrapaper or fabric. I even used a good Ol' walmart frame.

Have a great day. Jen

No` Not at all! I so appreciate you updating the post and emailing me a Thank you. Honestly its someone else... and they have created two spaces just like mine and its even more odd because they follow my family decor blog and leave me comments too. However, no credit what so ever was given to me. Sorry, if I worried you. ;) Jen
