Creative Bits | 14: Pretty Magnets

Raise your hand if you use magnets on your fridge (or anywhere else in your house).

Now raise your other hand if your magnets are less than attractive, utilitarian, or came as a freebie from that repair guy who knocked on the door and wants you to hire him do some work on your house.

Good, glad you're with me on this one. Now that you've got both hands in the air, feel free to raise the roof or fist pump or something because I've got a solution for your magnet problem.

I'm super excited to share this idea in my Creative Bits Series because this one comes from my sister-in-law, Mary! She's a wonderful photographer, and typically blogs about her photos, but this week she shared something a little different - a tutorial on how to prettify some regular ole magnets. I loved it, and want to try it myself since I have some of the same magnets she used, so I figured I'd pass the tutorial along to you lovely people in case you want to try it too!

You probably have all the materials you need hanging around your house already if you're like me and hoard have a few craft supplies. Go on over and take a look at the full tutorial for details. I promise you'll want to do this project immediately. :)

P.S. I'll be back later today to announce the winner of the Fan District Art Print giveaway. Thanks to everyone who entered!!


Creative Bits is a semi-regular series here on May Richer Fuller Be where I share little tips, tricks and simple do-it-yourself projects from other creative bloggers' minds. I figure if it makes me say, "wow," it's worth passing along to you! And remember, if you want to pin any images that don't belong to me, please click through and pin from the original source!

  1. These are so pretty! Makes me want to change out my fridge for one with a magnetic door. The husband will love that logic. :)

    1. Ha! Yes, good logic :). I didn't grow up with a magnetic fridge door, so getting to actually have fridge magnets is still a luxury to me! (Weird luxury, huh?)
