My daughters Mermaid Room Makeover was a HUGE hit, and one of her favorite elements was the DIY Magnetic Busy Board I made her for the back of her door.

Outfit of the Day and Magnetic Dry Erase BoardThis is a super simple project, made easier with my Cricut Explore and some printable magnet sheets. Want to make one? This is how I did mine:

Supplies Needed:
Magnetic Dry Erase Board – mine came from Walmart for $6

Printable Magnet Sheets – Avery sells some, as does Staples and other office supply stores

Velcro 3M Command Strips

DIY Magnetic Busy BoardI designed the mermaids and uploaded them to Cricut Design Space (my mermaids should be available soon in the Make It Now section of the Cricut site, I’ll link to it when they are available), but you could do this with any theme using images from the Cricut Image Library!

Set the size of your canvas to the size of your dry erase board so that you know what sizes to make each element.

Once you have all the pieces you want, go ahead and print then cut them out – visit Cricut for details on how to do that.

Lastly, I used Velcro 3M Command Strips to adhere the board to my daughters door. This way it is removable and she can bring it on car trips if desired!
