Barb's Magnet Board

Welcome back to my hideout! This is where my crafty creations begin and end. My craft room is painted a cheery yellow with green print curtains from the Debbie Mum line. You'll find my creations throughout the room, as well as ideas for inspiration.

What I want to highlight is my new magnetic board that my husband helped me hang. I had seen something something similar in cyberspace and thought it was a great idea. We had the metal on hand in my husband's shop, so all we had to do was attach it to the wall with screws.

To make the board more functional, I covered tin cans with scrapbook paper, ribbons, and stickers. To keep them in place, I hot glued three magnets to the back of each. These keep all my gadgets easy to reach but out of my way when crafting.

The hanging hooks are from Walmart, and again I attached some strong magnets. These hooks are perfect for scissors and tape. I always have a notepad hanging to jot down supplies to shop for or random thoughts while crafting.

I created the large rock magnets for Christmas gifts and thought I needed a few. To make, I used clear stones and ModPodged paper/stickers on to the back. Again, hot glue a magnet. Thanks for visiting my corner of craftiness!
