DIY Color Blocked Magnets

April 29, 2015 at 2:00 AM 3 comments


Ian and I have accumulated a collection of magnets from our travels. They are a cheerful reminder of our trips and help brighten up our fridge. Unfortunately, our tendency to purchase fragile magnets mixed with our clumsiness has sent a handful to the magnet graveyard.

Recently, I noticed we were in need of a few more magnets and decided to make a fun DIY project out of it. With a bit of tape and paint I was able to create these geometric wooden magnets!

They add a pop of color to our fridge plus they are wooden – so they won’t break if they fall on our kitchen floor! Score!


To make these yourself pick up a pack of wooden furniture knobs and magnets from your local craft store. Use tape to create straight lines, paint, let dry and repeat. Once your magnets are dry superglue your magnets to the back of the wooden knobs. Let dry for 5 minutes then you are ready to place them on your fridge!

    Oh my gosh, these are PRECIOUS!! I love this! This was such a creative idea for running out of magnets 😉 I’m pretty clumsy sometimes too and have been known to break those porcelain/ceramic type magnets more than once haha!! Thank you so much for sharing this DIY, I’ll keep this in the back of my mind for when I’m feeling crafty!

    Much Love!!
