DIY Magnet Board

This DIY is so easy and probably couldn't get any cuter!  I'm keeping my magnet board in the kitchen for any recipe cards that I may be using or to rotate pictures in and out without having to use a dedicated frame.


What you need: 
- A picture frame
- Decorative paper
- Magnet sheets

(I found all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby.)

How to:
1.  Begin by removing the glass from the picture frame.
2.  Next, use an adhesive magnet and stick the magnet to the decorative paper.  If your frame is an 8x10, you may need to use more than one magnet sheet.
3.  Cut around the magnet to remove the excess paper.
4.  Place the decorative paper into the picture frame.  

When choosing your magnet sheets, pay attention to the level of magnet (I used a level 2 and it worked great, but level 1 may have been a bit to weak to hold up a recipe card).



Happy 4th of July tomorrow!!

Anyone have any fun plans?! John and I plan to hang around town and maybe do a bit of exploring... nothing too extreme, but just how this kind of holiday should be spent!

  6. So cute and easy! You could even add a laminate over the decorative paper so it could easily be wiped down in the kitchen. . . I would clearly need that if I was doing any cooking that close to something that cute!
