Skull Boardin’

I received this kick ass roll of skull and crossbones ribbon from my friend Amanda and have been dying to put it to use.

Recently, my boss asked me to create a dry erase board for weekly tracking purposes but didn’t want it to be a typical calendar.  So I got crafty because the choices at the store are just so ordinary and if you’ve been reading this blog very long, you know that just won’t do.

For $13.00, I found an 18”x22” magnetic wipe board framed in cork at Target (all office supply stores were at least 25% higher in price for the same item).

Here’s what I used in addition to the board:

Scissors (don’t have to be so blingy but it does make it more fun), double sided tape and the ribbon of your choice.

First, I measured how many columns I would need with a ruler.

Then I applied the tape to the back of the ribbon.

And stuck the ribbon to the board (a ruler helps to set it straight).

I found magnets with the days of the week to use at the top of columns and coordinating dry erase markers do the rest!

White board, $13.00. Target. Ribbon, gift. Magnets, $3.00. Target. Dry erase markers, $4.00. Target.

A simple board (bedazzled to whatever degree you wish) with rock star statement that took about $20 to create. Easily tailored to be used as a daily family calendar, a menu planner, chore list, or weekly concert schedule (as shown above)…and best of all, you can always change the ribbon to update the look for next to no cost.

    Love this idea, especially the part about changing the ribbon. I haven’t met a holiday I didn’t like to decorate for!

Holla at me!
