DIY Dollar Store Magnets


Today I'm sharing DIY decorative magnets.

Magnets are one of those 
things that we all use,
but don't think too much about.



I found these colorful clip magnets,




and these button magnets at the dollar store.
I knew with a little effort,
they could look so much better!

I spray painted the clip magnets 
with 2 coats of good,black spray paint.
Make sure your spray paint is formulated for plastic,
to get good coverage.

They turned out really well.

And they match just about anything!



For the other magnets,
I only wanted the magnets not the plastic part.
So I put them into a baggie,
and hit them with a hammer (I really enjoyed this part)
until the plastic was broken.
Then I dug the magnets out.




I bought these acrylic die cuts on 
clearance at Hobby lobby,
 and I thought they would make cute magnets.

I just hot glued the magnet to the back
of the acrylic shape.

Super simple!

  1. I LOVE the flamingos. Great idea to take the magnets out of the plain boring magnets and make your own. I LOVE IT!

  2. I can't get enough of the clip magnets on my fridge. They just hold stuff way better. Great idea to scavenge the magnets like that, lol! They're far cuter now.

  3. Those acrylic magnets are so dang cute! And I definitely need to pick up some of those magnets from the dollar store--they can be so pricey at other places.
