Christmas Magnet Board

I got asked to help make crafts for my son's school. I was so excited to help! A few girlfriends and I got together to make magnet boards for the school. Friends and crafts together always make a great time!!! I love how they came out!



What You Need:



  • Mod Podge
  • Tin Sign (Got mine at the Dollar Store)
  • Foam Brush
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Glass Beads
  • Clear, Flat-Backed Glass Marbles
  • Magnets

How To Make It:
  • Cut Scrapbook paper about 1/2 inch larger than tin so you could wrap around tin.
  • Once paper is cut, brush mod podge on tin.

  • Center paper on to tin and press down. Then smooth paper to make sure you seal bubbles. 

  • Once dry, turn it over and mod podge excess paper onto the back of the tin. Do 2 opposite sides first. Once that is dry, do the other 2 sides.

  • Follow these instructions to make the Scrapbook Magnets with the same paper used for tin.

  • When everything is dry, place it on a frame stand or hang it on your wall!



P.S.  If you are wondering who took those amazing pictures, they are from Snidershots Photography. She is amazing!!!
