If you want to add a little pizazz to your school supplies, make this cute dry erase board with Duck Tape! It’s easy and takes five minutes.
Back-to-school is right around the corner . . . and while I’m not going back to school, I always notice when retailers get their supplies in for the year.
And it honestly makes me think about getting more organized. One of the things on my list was a new organization center for tasks, and this is the perfect back-to-school project.
Any student can use this to keep track of what they need to do. So what I did was revamp a magnet/dry erase board I had laying around with Duck Tape. And I love how my cute dry erase board turned out!
I headed to Walmart for my Duck Tape. They have a huge selection of it in so many patterns – and I think that was one of the hardest parts of my project actually.
Picking the Duck Tape pattern you want to use is difficult just because there are so many good ones! Here’s how I decorating my dry erase/magnet board.

Duck Tape® is one of the easiest craft supplies to use ever. You simply pull it off the roll and tape it down. It sticks to everything!
I trimmed each side with Duck Tape, cut with scissors and folded over the edge of my dry erase/magnet board. Smooth down.
It’s that easy – and here’s how the corners look so you know how to overlap it.
For the floral embellishment, give your shape several coats of acrylic paint and let dry.
Then coat with Mod Podge Extreme Glitter for a whole lotta bling bling! Let dry and glue the flower into the corner of your organization center. Let dry.
Here’s a close-up of the flower so you can get an idea of how much it sparkles.
