Straightforward And Quick DIY Personalized Refrigerator Magnet
Quick and easy DIY personalized refrigerator magnet project that you can do in ten minutes tops, even if you are a tortoise. 🙂
Things Required to make personalized refrigerator magnet:
For this DIY project you will need:
- Some magnets
- Lid from jar
- Your favorite picture
Step 1: Print out the picture
The first thing you need to do before you start this DIY project is to pick your favorite picture and print it in a smaller format, depending on the jar lid you will be using.
Step 2: Draw a circle
Next, you can take your lid jar, measure the size of the lid and draw a circle on the cardboard. Also, you can make your life easier and draw the circle with the lid.
The best cardboard you can use is as thick as you can find. I wasn’t able to find some thick cardboard, so I’ve to draw two circles on the same cardboard.
Step 3: Cut
Then cut the circles you draw in step 2.
Step 4: Glue the circles of the cardboard in the jar lid
Now it’s time for some gluing. You can use any glue you like. I’m happy with the way the hot glue gun works, so I’m using it for everything including this project.
Take the lid, put some glue inside and put the one circle of cardboard in the lid.
Next, take the other circle of cardboard and glue it on the previous one in the lid. Use as many circles as you want inside the lid.
The point is to fill the lid inside. I was happy how it came out with the two circles, so I continued with the procedure.
Step 5: Glue the picture
The next thing you are going to do is to take the picture you printed previously, and draw a circle with the lid. Cut the circle of the picture and glue it on the top of the cardboard.
Next, you have to do is to take the magnets. You need to test how many magnets are required to attach the jar lid onto the fridge.
If the lid stays on the refrigerator, then one magnet is enough. If it falls off the fridge, then maybe you need to put two magnets.
The magnets I used were sticky at the one side, so I stick the magnet on the lid. If you can’t find sticky magnet like mine, you can attach it with hot glue.
Here is the finished look.
Additional Ideas for personalized magnet
- You can use different sizes and different shapes of jar lids and make a whole collage on your fridge with all the happy moments.
- You can also be creative and cover the lid with some sticky paper.
- You can use some spray and make the lids in different colors.
- You can wrap a ribbon around the lid and make some bow at the top or the bottom of the picture.
- Glue pearls around the lid to give more shine to the magnet.
I wanted the clean look, so I left mine the way they are without adding anything.
It can be the perfect gift for every occasion like Valentine, Christmas, birthday present only with adding the picture of some crazy spent moments with your family, friends or loved once.
