Git’R’Done: I lurve the alphabet magnets

8 Dec



These magnets are super simple to make. They’ll help add a little color to your kitchen and some sweet nostalgia. Ya’ll like that type of thing right?

Here is what you will need:
1. Wooden blocks.
2. Circular magnets
3. Hot glue gun and glue.

There is a couple places that you can get wooden blocks for cheap. Walmart sells a pack for a buck, I am pretty sure Micheal’s sells their pack for alittle bit more than that. You could also get lucky at a thrift store and pick up some rad aged blocks. Thrifted blocks are my favorite because they have interesting colors and if loved greatly they usually have some character to them.
You can pick up blank magnets at a craft store. I got mine at Micheals.

Once your glue gun is nice and hot squirt a little dot on the back of your desired letter. Then apply the magnet.

Put them up on your fridge and wahla. You are finished.
PS. You know that saying anything that can contain water can be a vase? Pretty much the same concept for magnets. Anything that you can glue magnets to the back of can…well be a magnet. I’ve been keeping this in mind while thrifting and have been able to pick up some nice vintage wooden letters. So there ya go. Go out there and get you something your fridge will love.
