Magnet Board with Button and Cork Magnets!
Great for the home, office, dorm, or where ever! My roommate’s mother made one of these for her, and after seeing hers, I had to make one! Her mom used an old shirt as her fabric! Yay for upcycling!
- Pizza Pan (mine was 16″… The bigger the better! Any sort of metal pan will do though. I liked the aesthetics of the circle shape.)
- Hot Glue
- Permanent Adhesive (I used E-6000)
This project is fast, easy, and fun. It’s really one of those projects that you turn ‘nothing’ into ‘something’ really pretty. I’m going to make one for my room and for my office.
Remove any stickers on the pizza pan.
Cut your fabric to approximate size.
Round your fabric, but make sure you keep about 1.5 inches of extra fabric around the edge.
Notice that I am glueing on the concave side of the pizza pan!!
Start hot glueing the fabric on.
Do four opposite sides first, so that your fabric is tight and centered.
Pinch the fabric a bit when glueing, so that you don’t have any bunched up fabric on the good side.
I braided a few pieces of hemp as my hanger.
I attached it with the E-6000.
I tried hot glue first, and it’s not strong enough. My magnet board crashed down my wall in the middle of the night. Scared the heck outta me.
I also made Magnets to go with my board.
This is also super easy, just glue anything you want to a piece of magnet. You can get magnet sheets and cut them to size. Make sure they aren’t weak magnets. The fabric does weaken the strength of the magnet, so just keep that in mind. I used buttons, wine cork, googly eye, old jewelery, and pieces of wood (which aren’t finished yet, soon though).
And that’s it! Easy and beautiful.
