Magnet Makeover


I have a fridge that looks like this:



I don’t really like the look of a cluttered fridge door, BUT, my little ones enjoy playing with their magnets and hanging their masterpieces on it – so their happiness wins. :)

Over the years our magnets have been stepped on, catapulted, rolled over, dunked in apple juice, gooped with mysterious sticky goo, and so on.  I decided that our magnets deserved a makeover so here is what we did…


1. Brush your magnets with a thin coat of mod podge. I let my little ones do this part.  
2. Stick them firmly on back side of scrapbook paper face down.



3. When glue dries, use an xacto knife to trim out magnets.



4. Seal top of magnet with mod podge.


                                before                                                                                          after


Peace out primary-ish colored magnets. :)
