Dressing-up Dry Erase Markers

Hello my friends!  Some of you may know that I am a person obsessed with list-making.  The more hectic my life, the more lists you will find spread all over the house.  Which is why I LOVE, love, LOVE dry-erase boards.  They are one of many ways to make a task list look creative and fun, thus motivating me to actually do the things numbered on the list.  However, I am fed up with the ugly markers that are always attached to the side of my adorable-crafty-dry-erase-board.  So here's my easy solution...
 Dress-Up that Oh-So-Very-Unstylish Marker
Materials Needed:
Dry Erase Markers
Fabric Scraps
Mod Podge
Glue Gun

Cut out a piece of fabric about 3" X 3" around your marker.

Spread some Mod Podge on the fabric and wrap around the marker.

Add another layer of Mod Podge over the top to secure the seam and keep it from fraying.

Add a little bit of ribbon...

A glue gun works well for attaching any embellishments.

Go crazy and dress-up all the dry erase markers in your house!
 


I love the way these turned out, and it's a quick 5-minute project. I'm planning to also do some of these with my kids as teacher gifts this year--wouldn't that be cute??
