Picture Frame Dry Erase Board

I have been trying to find a dry erase board to put on my fridge door for months. The little cheap ones don't have flat back so they slide off the fridge. So after some brainstorming I remembered dry erase markers work on glass the same way they do dry erase boards.. So this is what I came up with.

-picture frame ($1)
-6 magnet strips (1)
-fabric (on hand)
-double sided tape (on hand)
Open up your dollar store frame- whatever size you want.

Flip it over and rip off the little holder. They come off very easy, just wiggle it back and forth.
Unwrap your magnets. Break them apart.

Evenly space the around the back edges of the frame. Now, take out the back of the frame and over with fabric. I used double sided tape and pulled the fabric tight on all sides. Put it all back together. And you get this little beauty...
I'm really happy with how this turned out. I'm especially happy it only took about 10 minutes :)
