Cute Clothespin Magnets

IMG_0767

I typically face the dilemma of too many things to hang on the fridge and not enough magnets. So, I found a solution: clothes pins + nail polish + magnet = nice way to display pictures and invites!

This is what you’ll need:

  • Masking Tape or Painter’s Tape
  • Wooden Clothes PinsIMG_0746
  • Scissors
  • Nail PolishIMG_0748
  • Magnets with an Adhesive Back (small works best, but you can cut larger ones to size).
  • Craft Glue (optional – use if your magnets aren’t adhesive)  Clothespin, Magnets, Nail Polish Crafts

Here’s what to do:

  1. Cut the tape into strips or chevron patterns and adhere firmly to a clothes pin. Keep in mind, that the tape strips you  cut can be used again for your next clothsepin magnet (this will save you time cutting things out). IMG_8838
  2. Using your nail polish, paint around the tape.IMG_8840
  3. Let them dry for at least twenty minutes before removing the tape. It was hard for me to be this patient, but my patience was rewarded with straighter lines.
  4. Cut your magnet pieces to size and stick/glue them to the back of your painted pins.IMG_0768
  5. It’s ready to be on the fridge holding pictures of family or your next wedding invite!Fridge Magnets, DIY, Nail Polish as paint, Easy Crafts
