If you’ve been hanging out with me over the last few weeks, you might remember that I was getting ready for Haven Conference by using the new DecoArt Decou-Page Papers on all sorts of surfaces! I led a little class, introducing the papers and we did this fun little project.
DIY Fridge Magnets!
These were super easy and would be a great summer project for you and your kiddos…they could make their own magnets in preparation for all that creative art work you’ll want to display on the fridge after school starts!
I found this idea on Show & Tell U and thought it was perfect for playing around with decoupage papers and perfect for holding all-things important on the fridge…
These are as easy as can be and will only take a minute…
Here’s What You Need:
*Paint sticks or wood shims
*Sand Paper (optional)
First paint your wood shims or paint sticks…(both sides) Cut paper to just a little smaller than the front of the shim…
Using decoupage medium, adhere the strip of paper to the front of the shim…
When the paper is dry, lightly sand the edges and the front (sanding the front of the paper is optional…I like mine to look a little worn!)
Using the E600 as instructed on the tube, glue the magnets onto the back of the wood shims…
Let the glue dry and then hang them on the fridge or magnet board! This is a fun little project just in time for school papers and art projects!
