(crafting on a dime) diy menu board

I’m excited to welcome Kathryn of Destination: Craft to my blog. I found her adorable blog after she linked up her DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser tutorial to Do Something Craft Friday. You should know by now how much I love me a good mason jar project, so I was immediately smitten with Kathryn’s blog! She’s here today to show us how to make a menu board for, get this, $2!

Hello! I am so excited to be here on Vanessa’s amazing blog! I’m Kathryn and I blog over at Destination: Craft. I love DIY projects but I’m also a sucker for quilts and cooking. I have two adorable babies, so I have to squeeze my crafts in when I get the chance!

Today I’m going to show you how to make an adorable Menu Board. I’ve been meaning to make one of these for a while now and when Vanessa told me about this challenge, I knew I could make a cute one for $10. I already had all of the material on hand. I didn’t even buy the frame, my Grandma did!


Picture Frame ($2)

Fabric scraps (free)

Vinyl or stickers (free)

Ribbon (free)

Scrapbook paper (free)

Total Project Cost: $2


Step 1: Cut out some triangles from some fabric scraps.  You DO have fabric scraps, right?

Step 2: Sew your triangles to your piece of ribbon.

Step 3:I spruced up my frame, since it was red. But this is totally optional.

Step 4:I cut my letters out with my Cricut but you could totally just use stickers. I also threw in a piece of scrapbook paper. I wouldn’t recommend anything too busy or dark.

Step 5:Lastly, glue on your fabric banner you made earlier. 

Step 6:There you have it! Now go plan out your menu!

Thank you so much, Vanessa, for having me!!
