A few weeks ago, we received this pretty card in the mail from an art gallery.
Whenever I see feathers, I think of my sister-in-law Ruth who loves feathers — when she finds one, she preserves it and decorates with it. She is very interested in Native American culture and customs.
Instead of throwing out the junk mail card, I made a little gift for her out of it: the size of the six pretty feather pictures were the perfect size and thickness to make handmade fridge magnets out of it!
DIY Fridge Magnets Made With Junk Mail
I like repurposing and recycling something whenever I can.
So why not upcycle junk mail, right?
You could make refrigerator magnets with any junk mail or postcard or pictures from old calendars.
DIY Fridge Magnet Supplies:
- junk mail, postcard, calendar, or similar
- magnet cards with adhesive
Cut the junk mail into the size you desire.
I bought business card-sized magnetic cards that were already a pretty good size for the little pictures. Adjust your magnets to your own needs.
I decided to make the magnet a bit smaller than the picture.
Remove the cover of the adhesive and press it onto the back of your picture.
There you are: six fridge magnets made with minimal effort, just scissors and adhesive magnet cards.
This is what they looked like on our fridge, before I gift wrapped them for Ruth.
I also added a little feather charm.
It was a lot of fun to make these magnets, and my sister-in-law really appreciated that I made her a handmade gift.
Pin this fun DIY project for later!
