This DIY dry erase whiteboard tiles craft is such a fun & easy organizational project. Make this homemade writing board with dry-erase tiles!
DIY dry erase board
Lately, I’ve been on a mission to get my family a little more organized. My house is usually a big mess because I share my home with a husband, 2-year-old, and 8-month-old. But despite the constant mess, I still try to stay organized. I prefer using wall calendars and other “old school” organizational tools because I love to write, and that’s how the idea for this DIY whiteboard project was born. I love the look of the script, buying pens, and reading the written word. The process of writing in my life is vital, so of course, I need spaces to write whenever I feel it necessary.
How to make a dry erase board
I’m pleased with how this DIY dry erase whiteboard tiles craft project turned out. I want to eventually set up an organization station in our kitchen, and this was a small effort towards that. Looking back, I probably should have added a hanging shelf for keys or mail, but learn from my mistakes and do it yourself! I’d love to hear about any organizational projects you’ve worked on lately. And if you’re interested in checking out more of my projects, head over to DIY Mother!
DIY Dry Erase White Board Tiles Craft
- (4-8) 6 in. x 6 in. glossy or glass ceramic tiles
- Strong adhesive
- Tile trim (quarter round, found at most home stores)
- Command strips (easy hang, these are the best!)
Step 1: Prepare the tiles
To get started on your DIY whiteboard, clean off the tiles before you do anything else. Then, use your silicone adhesive and glue the quarter-round tile trim to one of the tiles. This is going to be where you store the dry erase marker.
In order for your glue to cure for 24 hours, you’ll need to use something to keep the quarter-round trim upright. I propped the adhesive bottle against the trim and it dried just fine.
Step 2: Add command strips to the back of the tiles
Put your command strips on the backs of the tiles and start arranging them in whatever design you want. I wanted a 4-panel design so I could break up my bills, tasks, and to-do’s.
That’s it, now you’re ready to write on your DIY dry erase whiteboard tiles craft!
Thanks so much to Olivia of DIY Mother for providing this craft!
I’m Olivia. I’m a 28 year old mother to two rambunctious little girls, and wife to a handsomely handy contractor. Our family purchased our first home last year, and since then we’ve been embarking on any DIY renovation project we can dream up; I’ve also become a bit of a decorating nerd. I blog about my DIY highs and lows at DIY Mother, but in my free time I’m either pinning or Googling pictures of Ryan Gosling (it never gets old).
