Vinyl Dry Erase Menu Board – Lori Whitlock Design Team Post

Dry Erase Menu Board from Photo Frame

I was struck with how beautiful this single Menu title is. I love the curves and lines of it.

I keep a variety of inexpensive frames on hand.

 I knew it would look great in my kitchen as part of a menu board so I took apart some inexpensive frames I had on hand and got started.

Write and Erase, Write and Erase

I cut these Gowrite Dry Erase Sheets to the size of my frames. The back peeled off easily and I stuck it to the cardboard backing of the frame.

Cut around the edges for a good fit.

I like to use an X-acto Knife when I work with vinyl.  It’s also handy when cutting this Dry Erase material.

That’s a pretty title.

Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out Lori’s Menu title in black vinyl. You can find that great file here.  I often stick the vinyl I remove to my own hand while weeding.  LOL!

Need vinyl? I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.

Transfer Tape is vinyl’s BFF.

After weeding the vinyl, I used transfer tape and carefully laid the lettering directly onto the dry erase sheet.

Once the transfer tape was removed, I had a pretty menu board all ready to show what’s for dinner!

And tonight we’re having…uh…er…somebody bring me the menu for the Chinese place.

Now if only I could find my dry erase markers!  I think I sent them all in for the teacher’s at my kids schools.  Awww man!  Well, I did just find this good deal on the fat ones.  I like them better than the little pen sized ones: Expo Chisel Tip Dry Erase Markers.

  1. Love this! So simple! Have you heard of dry erase crayons? They’re like thick smooth-writing crayons (sort of like oil pastels) that can write on dry erase boards and wipe away easily. I have them for my 2.5 yo so he doesn’t have to deal with markers and dried out tips. And if any is stuck on, just use a tissue and some eye makeup remover (this works for all crayons too). Anyway…just my 2cents! I also would write “Menu: Dad’s picking up Thai food” 😉

  2. BEAUTIFUL Project Joy! Well I got my Silhouette today! It’s finally in my hot little hands! I’ve been admiring it for a little while now sitting here on my desk…. So hopefully I will take the plunge and cut something! LOL
