The Funky Little Menu Board {DIY}

menu board

Make it, don’t buy it!  If I had a penny for every time I’ve said that…well technically I do from all the $$ I save creating things I want!  Creating things for my home doesn’t just save me money, it really feels good.  I always end up with a piece that’s customized to MY liking and packed with memories and significance!

I love creating the feeling of some of my favorite trendy restaurants in my home…so when I saw an adorable little menu board at a hip eatery the other day I just knew I had to have it.  I decided to create a funky little home menu board for my dining room using an old picture frame I had laying around.  Not only does it look great, but it entices me to better plan meals since I just can’t resist the urge to write all over it =)

step 1Gather up an old picture frame, a piece of fabric (for the backing), magazine clippings (for the letters), and a glue stick

step 21Cut your piece of fabric and wrap it around a piece of cardboard (I used the cardboard insert that came in my frame).  If your frame does not have an insert, simple cut one to fit inside the frame.

step 3Flip through magazines and clip out the letters to spell “Menu” and one letter for each day of the week.  You can really have fun with this and get some funky letters for a hip look!  Using the glue stick, apply them to the fabric board.  Simply insert the board back into the frame and close it up…TA-DA, instant home menu!

Use a dry erase marker to write your weekly dinners right on the glass!
