Magnetic Message Board...

Well, I busted out the duct tape idea again for another project.

This time, I wrapped duct tape around a magnet/dry erase board.  My sister just recently bought a house and I wanted to make something cool for my nephew's new room.  He's 6 so I thought a Magnetic Message Board would be totally cool for a 1st grader's bedroom.

I wrapped the 14 x 14 board with duct tape and used Cricut Graphically Speaking and Batman cartridges to cut out the black and red vinyl lettering. 

Using duct tape was a super easy way to enhance the edges of the board.

What's a magnetic board with out magnets?   

How to make DIY Magnets
  • Adhere paper on to the back of glass beads with Mod Podge, let dry.
  •  Use E6000 adhesive to adhere strong magnets on to the back of the beads.

Such a simple idea which has now inspired many more magnet ideas!  Now I have to make some boards for my kids...they loved this idea!
