Orange polka dot magnet board

I love a good, inexpensive craft project!  And this is definitely one of those!


A fun, festive magnet board.


It started with a metal tray from the dollar store.


I gave it 2 coats of spray primer, then 2 coats of orange spray paint.  Then painted white polka dots with craft paint. 


To decorate it for Halloween, I grabbed a scrapbook card from Jenni Bowlin and used a button with a magnet glued onto the back, to attach it to the tray.



A photo easel holds it nicely!


And here it is on a shelf in the dining area. I think it adds a fun pop of color!
