Dry Erase Message Board Picture Frame - #DIY Teacher Gift

Have you gotten everything bought off of your Christmas shopping list yet?  Honestly, we have done pretty well this year and have most of our shopping and wrapping done.  I am pretty proud of us!  One area that we hadn't bought for was for the kid's teachers and teacher aides at school.  

Since Jude has been in school I have always tried to create some fun DIY teacher gifts for Christmas.  The teachers seem to enjoy them, especially when they are items that they can put to use or enjoy.

This year I decided to get a bit more crafty (but not too much) with the gifts and now I want to create my own.  I am so happy with the way these Dry Erase Message Board Picture Frames turned out.

3.  To do this I traced the paper using the back of the frame.

4.  Carefully glue your Scrabble pieces to the frame.  Let glue dry completely. 

5.  Tie a piece of twine on each lid of the dry erase markers.

I absolutely love the way these came out and they can totally be personalized for anyone.  I hope the teachers will use these at home or even in the classroom.

  1. I love this idea. I have a dry erase calendar on my fridge, but this looks like a lot more fun.

  2. I truly love this DIY gift! It's really perfect for any time of year a gift is needed! I am also grateful for the link to the scrabble pieces! We have looked for these before for other craft projects and while we found some, they were far more expensive than what you linked to!

  3. I love this idea! Perfect for male and female teachers alike. Since I'm not super crafty, I generally just go with gift cards for teachers, but would love to try this one for my kids. What a great thing for them to wake up to every morning - a note from Mom.

  4. This turned out so great! I love the idea of a meaningful gift for the kiddo teachers. It is so much better than... let's say... a candle? This is something that I could even make - and I am not very crafty!

  5. I want one of these, especially the one with NOTES on top. The only teacher my son has is his Sunday school teacher. Oh wait, his homeschool teacher -- that's me! Score!

  6. My kids are obsessed with dry-erase boards right now! this would be a great gift to give the grandparents, especially with a cute note on the top!

  7. This is a great idea! I could have used a dry erase board when my Mother was living with me. She had Alzheimer's and there were so many things to keep track of.

  8. I remember when I was a teacher, all i got was chocolates all Christmas long. Its not that I didn't like it but when you walk home with ten pounds of chocolates, it's a bit much. Something like this dry erase board would have been cool to receive.
