They both love to cook and they trade off each week so I thought it would be fun to make them a dry erase menu board.
I started with an old frame and scrapbook paper I had on hand:
Cut the letters MENU from black vinyl on my Cricut Expression (poor thing has felt neglected since I’ve been using my Cameron, CoCo) using the Plantin Schoolbook font cart. I had some culinary themed rub-ons in my stash and couldn’t decide between utensils or wine themed because they like both but went with the utensils.
I put one set of the utensils in the lower right hand corner.
I wanted to shabby up the frame so grabbed a couple of paints from my paint stash. Ultimately ended up using just the light blue. Love these Martha paints…they stick to everything! Dry brushed the frame so some of the gold would still show through:
I have divided storage container where I keep alphabet stuff. I have a thing for alphabet stickers, tiles, brads, etc. and often pick them up on clearance for next to nothing, so I went to that and chose a “W” for their last name and glued it into a bottlecap. I also remembered a metal stand I’d found at JoAnn’s for something like 90% off and knew would come in handy sometime.
