Woodland Dry Erase Board Ideas Project Supplies:
- Darice Framed Rectangular Dry Erase Board
- Adhesive Moss Sheet
- Darice Faux Succulent Garland
- Assorted Darice Painted Butterflies
- Darice Hot Glue Gun/Sticks
- Spray Adhesive
- Matte Sealant Spray
Step 1. Measure the dry erase board frame and cut strips of the adhesive moss sheet to match. Don’t worry if they won’t cover the entire length of one side of the frame. You can just bump each strip up against the next and you won’t even notice that they’re separate.
Step 2. Remove the dry erase board from the frame and place aside. Peel off the adhesive backing and adhere the moss strips to the frame. You’ve probably noticed that working with moss is usually pretty messy. I solved this problem by spraying a coat of spray adhesive over the finished moss portion of the frame followed by another coat of matte sealant.
Step 3. Secure the dry erase board back in place. Use a hot glue gun to glue the faux succulent garland to the frame. I found that gluing a clump of succulents in place worked better at hiding the glue rather than following the thin vine.
Step 4. Strategically place the butterflies evenly over the board.
Step 5. Continue placing the butterflies until you’re happy with the look!
I absolutely love how fresh and vibrant these woodland dry erase board ideas turned out. I hope you enjoy making and customizing one of your own!
