DIY write-on picture frame

{We've moved! Visit us at our new and improved blog at: Texas Craft House}

Happy Easter! :)

Tonight I am sharing a craft that I have seen on pinterest and was inspired to make my own. I didn't follow any blog or instructions, as it was easy to figure out how to make this cute write-on picture frame.

Below is a picture of my supplies. I found my frame at Hobby Lobby, and was 50% off. :) I also picked out some scrapbook paper that I would be using on the inside. I chose 3 different papers altogether, you'll see the other two in a minute. The last thing I needed was an expo marker that I picked up at Wal Mart. I chose the skinnier marker since I had a smaller frame and made it easier to write. For an eraser you can just use a tissue, or your finger.

I used the paper insert that was already in the frame to trace a rectangle onto my scrapbook paper. I then cut it out and put the frame back together with the scrapbook paper.

Here is a picture of using the frame to leave a note for my husband. :) We always left notes for each other anyway (he has such a crazy work schedule - mostly works midnight or second shifts). You could do this for other family members or roommates, too.
Here is an example of the second scrapbook paper I chose. I love the different colors on it and matches our decor really well.
In this picture I used the frame as a reminder to myself for in the morning when I might be in a hurry.
Here is the last scrapbook paper I chose.
This is an example of using the write-on frame as upcoming date reminders.
I love this craft because it was very easy, and definitely something I will use. I have a napkin from Vera Bradley that I might put inside the frame, too. :) Elisabeth and I love Vera Bradley. You could change out the scrapbook paper to match the seasons or holidays. You could get different color markers. There is so many different frames to choose from, too. :)

Thanks for following!


  1. What a terrific idea. It would make a great grocery list reminder. You two are so creative!

    1. Thank you Kathy! Great idea to use this as a grocery list. :) It would be so much cuter than a ripped up piece of paper.
