By now I’ve written up several DIYs for Too Damn Young, and so far each of these craft projects have (hopefully) been therapeutic for you to create. This project is a little different. While the actual ‘making’ of your dry erase board can hardly be considered therapeutic—once you have your materials it will take all of five minutes to complete—it’s my hope that in using this craft you’ll find inspiration and hope.
Once you create your dry erase board, I challenge you to write one happy thought—this could be a fave song lyric, an inspirational quote, or just a positive message—to yourself each day. It might be hard at first, but it will get easier and the effects will be profound.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- wrapping paper
- glass covered photo frame
- dry erase marker
DIY Dry Erase Board
1. Gather your materials. I chose a 12″ x 12″ photo frame, but yours can be bigger or smaller. Make sure the frame is covered in glass, not plastic. (The marker erases more easily from glass.)
2. Cut the wrapping paper to the appropriate size. Trace the glass cover to get the right size paper.
4. Place your board somewhere where you’ll see it each day. This could be on your end table so it’s the first thing you see each morning, inside your closet, or behind your bedroom door.
5. Using a dry erase marker, write one ‘happy thought’ on your board each day. Try Pinterest for inspiration.
