Polka Dotted White Board

If you're like me, then you like white board for the sheer fact that you can do nifty little designs with permanent markers that can easily be erased, (so cool right!!??)
I've gone through so many different designs this past year: daily calendar, weekly to do list, class schedule, assignment list and so many more!! Yet my favorite and current design is cute little polka dots.
Its so very simple to do actually. All you'll need is a white board, sticky dots (or round object of the size you want.) and permanent markers in whatever colors you want.
First, make sure your white board is nice and clean by wiping it down with a cotton ball with a teensy bit of rubbing alcohol. 
Next, apply the stickers in the pattern you want, tightly clustered or scattered, whichever you prefer. (pardon my legs in the pic.......)
Then, trace the edge of the stickers with the markers you chose in whatever pattern you want.
Next, remove the stickers then fill in the circles.

And tada! new polka dotted board!! I used this one to hold my post-its and marker and hung it above my larger white board (which is pretty much the same pattern and being used to hold all my to do post-its which are of course color coded).
And there you have it. Cute and organized polka dotted white boards, and you can do whatever you want with them. Plus! If you change your mind, (like I frequently do) a bit of rubbing alcohol and some paper towels will give you a clean slate.
