DIY: Magnetic Safari


This week we have a dual DIY, a chic magnetic board and some animal magnets. It is a way to display mementos, pictures and cards with an repurposed thrift store frame.

what you'll need:
 large picture frame
wooden board
magnetic paint
primer (for best results)
animal toys (from craft store)
box cutter
glue gun
gold spray paint (optional)

How to:

Coat the board with several layers of magnetic paint. Follow the directions for dry times between layers. For best results use primer before for a quicker result. Check the magnetism of the board with one of the magnets. Using a box cutter, cut the animals into two pieces. We sprayed ours gold. After they are completely dry, hot glue the magnets to the back of the halves.
