Did you know that you can make your own kraft paper DIY menu board with just a few simple steps? Then you can write your menu for the week and tear it off at the end of the week to create a whole new sheet. You can also use this same tutorial for other types of rolled kraft paper boards as well. I can see this being used as a to-do list or even just wall art!
- Darice Unfinished Wood Pallet Sign
- Darice 14-inch Kraft Paper Roll
- Wood Stain
- Darice Arrow Hook (2 required)
- Darice 1/2″ Dowel Rod
- 1″ Wood Balsa Strips (2 required)
- Paint Brush
- Darice Wood Glue
- White Vinyl (optional)
- Cricut or Silhouette Cutting Machine (optional)
- Transfer Tape (optional)
To begin you DIY menu board, stain all of your wood pieces with the wood stain. Paint on with the paintbrush, allow to sit a few minutes, then wipe away any excess with a rag. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
Once dry, lay all of your pieces out on the board. Measure and mark for size and cut with a saw. You will need to cut the dowel to length. Then cut the two wood strips to length. You will also need to cut four small pieces from the wood strips to help raise them off of the board. Stain any cut ends in the same manner and allow to dry.
Lay out your other pieces to determine location. Put the wood strips in place with some wood glue. You will add one short piece to each side with the long piece on top of them. Put some weight on the strip and allow the glue to dry completely.
There is a wide area at the top where you can add the word “MENU” or whatever word you would like. This is optional but does help finish off the piece. Just cut your letters from vinyl using a Cricut or Silhouette machine. Weed away the excess and transfer to your board using transfer tape. You could also paint this on using stencils.
You then have a cute kraft paper menu board to add to your kitchen or any other room of your home. This farmhouse style project looks great and can be a great addition to any home. When you want to change it, just pull the kraft paper from the bottom and cut it off to reveal a clean slate for the week’s menu!
This DIY menu chalkboard is a fun and fancier option for listing party or special occasion menus!
