Each Christmas I like to make a little something for some of the ladies I love in my life. I’ve been trying to decide what to make. Then it dawned on me: Hip Refrigerator Magnets! I’ve recently become aware at the lack of cute magnets I have in my life and I figured I might not be the only one.
It’s pretty self-explanatory, but I will say this: I tried to spray paint my wood blocks and it just didn’t look as nice as the acrylic craft store paint. So I recommend that. As for attaching the magnets DO NOT USE HOT GLUE! I have bought two sets of handmade magnets recently, and they have totally come undone. Hot glue will not hold. I recommend this intense all purpose cement glue I have pictured. And as for the taping off of stripes and glitter portions I reccomend floral tape. It won’t rip off the paint! Other than that, get wild!
I got these wood blocks from my friend Heather, but you can buy them at a craft store, or any other wood figure! I got the little bird houses at a thrift store. They had an odd paint job, so I sanded them and repainted them! Any little thing will work.
Paint your blocks with acrylic paint and then let them dry.
Attach the magnets. Unfortunately the magnets pictures were not strong enough to hold the weight of the block…I have to redo all of them. So I recommend testing this out FIRST, you know, before you gift wrap them all.
Then wrap and enjoy!
