Make Your Own Whiteboard For WASHABLE Markers – {Tuesday’s Do-It-Yourself Idea From Pinterest!}

Okay okay, so I say this a lot… but this idea is just pure GENIUS!! I love dry erase boards, but I hate the mess that ends up on the kids (and on everything else)! And sure they make washable dry-erase markers but they are just so dang expensive and always ALWAYS dry-erase markers end up getting lost (almost always withOUT the tops) at our house.

So using washable regular markers?? That’s PERFECT for us!!

Well this is just absolutely genius!  With the next house that we live in I’m really hoping to have a full-size laundry room (ours is teeny tiny right now and barely just fits the washer and dryer).  And while having an accordion style fold up drying rack is nice, I think I like this one even better!!  And it looks super easy to make too!

Make an Embellished Grocery Bag Container!! – {Tuesday’s Do-It-Yourself Idea From Pinterest!}

Isn’t this the most clever idea for plastic grocery bags?  You could have a lot of fun embellishing the plastic wipe container with pretty fabric, too. You will need to have handy: 12 plastic grocery bags, coordinating fabric (I will use remnants), empty wipe container, Fabric Mod Podge, foam brush, spray adhesive,  scissors or rotary cutter, and a quilting ruler.  This will make  a cute, inexpensive, and practical gift for your girlfriends.  AND, there are very detailed instructions on how to fold the bags so they interconnect with one another like wipes.  Cool, huh?

To see all of the instructions on how to make this, head over to Tatortots and Jello.

This was actually one of the first ideas that I pinned on Pinterest.  I haven’t tried it yet (like most things on Pinterest, lol!) but I really want to use it as a craft project for the kids over the summer!!

Doesn’t it look awesome??  I’m thinking I could find some old containers at garage sales to do this with and it literally would end up costing pennies to make!
