DIY magnets three ways

DIY magnets, three ways! {Heather's Handmade Life}

I always liked crafting fridge magnets while I was growing up, but those were the days when everyone had a metal fridge door. Stainless steel appliances might look nice, but they’re no good for sticking up school papers with a ceramic watermelon or set of A-B-C magnets.

Our fridge might be limited to the few magnets we can stick to one side, but you might recall I just made a cool lace-covered magnetic board for my home office.

It was looking pretty sparse, but after a quick trip to the dollar store and the local craft store, I was able to make dozens of magnets for about $12 — with plenty of supplies left over.

This is an easy project to do on your own, but it’s also something you can do with kids — especially over March Break when the days start to feel endless! My son helped me with some of these magnets, and happily made a few to stick to the metal storage lockers up in his bedroom.
