Madigan made... Reusable DIY table name cards and buffet markers.
Need a homemade gift idea for the entertainer in your family? Want an elegant way to mark your next buffet table?
I had the chance to work with this new Deco Laminate material from the Duck Brand® that included a dry erase surface. I love writable and reusable signs (I've made dry erase note boards and buffet signs) so I was excited to try this product out. With the holidays approaching in the next few months, I decided to make a bunch of mini dry erase signs that can be used for entertaining.
These frames would make a great handmade hostess gift or would be cute to include in a housewarming present, too.
Want to see how to make them?
DIY Dry Erase Signs
- Duck Brand® Deco Laminate, Dry Erase
- Mini frames
- Craft blade
- Cutting mat
- Dry erase marker
- Gift tag and ribbon, optional
Remove the backs and glass from each frame. Cut a strip of dry erase laminate wide enough to cover the frames and peel the back off. Press the panels of glass onto the sticky side of the laminate evenly and smooth out any bubbles.
On a cutting mat, with the glass facing up, trim off the excess laminate material.
Pop the glass back into the frame with the white side facing out and secure the clips in the back. That’s it! You can start to use the sign right away.
Write a name or message on your frame for your dinner guests…or wrap several of the little frames with a dry erase marker for a gift.
The gold frames look very chic. But these were so inexpensive and easy to make that I made another set in silver!
Duck Brand® sent me a couple kinds of their laminate in other fun patterns, too! Some of the patterns are permanent and some are removable. They can be applied to anything you want to personalize (books, storage boxes, etc.). The material can be used in crafty cutting machines, too (like CricutTM)! I’m looking forward to covering more cute things with laminate!
But I think I love dry erase laminate the best, though. The effect of this material in the frame is very professional. It looks and functions just like a real mini dry erase board (vs. dry erase boards with glass in a frame which looks like... well... glass in a frame). The white surface was easy to write on and the markers wiped off cleanly.
I sure hope my mother-in-law is not reading this post yet. She loves to entertain and you can be sure I’m going to make her a set of these cute little signs! Shhh!
