animal magnet diy

animal-magnet-diyHi everyone! Today I’m sharing my most recent DIY that I’ve made. These magnets are a great addition to any country or vintage-themed kitchen, or one that has a child or children with busy little fingers.

animal-magnets-1Supplies:

Any animal toy(s)
Magnets
Crazy glue
Miter saw
Clamp
Spray paint (optional)

animal-magnets-7Steps:

1. When choosing an animal, make sure to select one or more that can easily be cut to have a flat neck and midsection. This is where you will eventually be gluing the magnets, and so you will need to consider how they will look once placed on your fridge.

animal-magnets-33. Next, glue one or two magnets onto the backs of the head and bottom. If the magnets are larger, then you will most likely only need one. If you have smaller magnets, then two or more will be needed.

  • Choose love. Thank you all for the love on my previous post. Grief is an awful thing that each and every one of us go through. I'm so thankful for this amazing community of wonderful people. I know I haven't been very present on it lately (or probably too present to some of you), but much has changed and I'm trying to focus more on "real life" as opposed to these beautiful, tiny squares that offer us snippets into other worlds. That's not to say that I find @Instagram any less important! I still consider it to be a vital part of social media and love it to death. I'm merely going through personal stuff. I plan to return to posting daily once things have settled down over here. Until then, keep showing me photographs of your lives. I cherish such views. (Here's a picture from last week's engagement session.)
