DIY Menu Board

I have had a system for quite sometime now of writing out 2 week menu at a time and posted it on the fridge, but I’ve wanted to do something more decorative for awhile now.   I finally got around to it, and I’m so glad I did!  For some reason my family seems to notice the menu so much more and is excited to see a favorite meal on the menu that week.
I used a 12 by 24 inch frame and lined it with 2 pieces of white paper with red polka dots.
Using my Silhouette Cameo and 2 shades of turquoise paper, I adapted a tag shape for the days of the week, and added text for the days.
I cut a couple banners from kraft brown cardstock too.
I glued it all to the polka dot background and put it back in the frame with the glass.  For writing out the menu I love  Bistro Chalk Markers, they write and erase easily, but don’t smear like dry erase markers.  But any dry erase markers would work fine.
There is enough room that I could easily write out each meal of the day, and I like to use the space under the word “MENU” to write out extra kitchen projects for the week, like cookie dough, soft pretzels, or granola.
