colorful wooden magnets

My kids have tons of stuff going on- soccer, dance, school assemblies etc.  There are tons of papers around our house that always get stuck to the heart of our home- the fridge.  So since I can't do anything about the gobs of papers, I decided to at least make cute magnets to hold them.

The magnets are bright, colorful and FUN!!

I started with these bare wood pieces from my local craft store.

I mod podged some cute patterned papers to the front of them.

Then using a craft knife (amazon link), I cut the excess paper off.

I sanded the rough edges and gave each piece a few more coats of mod podge to seal it.  

I glued a small magnet (amazon link) to the back of each wood piece.

I love the variety of colors and shapes.

And they look great holding up a pic of my pumpkins!!  


  1. What a fun idea! I love how colorful they are. It's sure to brighten up any kitchen. :)

    We'd love for you to share this over at Much Ado About Monday, if you get a chance. :)


  2. I've seen lots of glass magnets, but never wood ones! I like the country look of these. Thanks for sharing. I found you on nap-time cerations link party. I posted on there too. Please visit my link if you have time. I've only been blogging for a week, so I am SO excited to have a visitor.


  3. Hi!
    I found you through tatertots and jello. I absolutely love these magnets! I have made map magnets using glass rocks before... but I love how these look flat and aged. What a great idea, I am totally going to have to do this!! Thanks for sharing it,

  4. Such a cute and clever idea. And I love the papers you used!

  5. So cute - I LOVE these! The papers you used look fun and modern and go together really well (but not in an overly match-y way)! : )
