DIY Dry Erase Board for Your Fridge

by The Organized Dream

There are so many different ideas to stay organized in the kitchen. There are also so many variations to a DIY dry erase board. I needed something simple, yet effective so this is my spin on the idea. I love making things like this because I hate clutter. Clutter on the fridge is the worst to me. I needed a calendar on my fridge for important appointments and school events. It is one of the most important parts of my command center. I have been using my refrigerator command center for the past few months and have done a post on it already. {If you would like to check out my fridge command center post to see what I’ve done, CLICK HERE.}

Today, I want to show you how I made my dry erase calendar/to-do board. It’s super simple and easy to do. I think that from start to finish, it only took me about 15 minutes to make and I already had the items I need on hand so it cost me absolutely nothing extra to make! It can’t get better than that, right?

Here is what you’ll need:
  • 8″x10″ Picture Frame
  • Craft Glue
  • Scissors
  • Magnets (I used a magnet sheet.)
  • Calendar
  • Scrapbook Paper
Start with a picture frame of your choice. I opted to use an 8″x10″ frame because it works best for me.
 If your frame has an easel on the back, remove it. You can do this by twisting gently to loosen the grommets.

Size your scrapbook paper to the back of the frame and cut with scissors.

Do the same for the calendar page if you’re opting to use this instead.
Cut and size magnets to your frame and adhere them with craft glue. Remove excess glue that oozes out.

Placing a larger piece of magnet on the back of the frame will allow a sturdier hold to your refrigerator.

This is the finished look with the calendar option.

This is the look with the scrapbook paper option.
I love both of these options. They both suit the color scheme of my kitchen well. I do recommend that if you’re not interested in switching out the calendar monthly, the blank scrapbook paper would be the better choice.
Do you have your own command center or DIY dry erase board? What works best for you?

It's so easy and looks so chic compared to normal calendars. I love it. Quick tip: if there is a Dollar Tree near you, you can find the magnetic sheets there. I think I forgot to add that to my post. 🙂
