While sister was here, we took on a few crafty projects like these DIY magnetic photo frames for the fridge. I was looking for an inexpensive yet personalized way to organize the photos on our refrigerator. This is how we made a pair...
Step 1: Visit Hobby Lobby for supplies - wooden frames, acrylic or spraypaint, adhesive, and magnets.
I picked this 5x7 frame and 4x6 frame for $3 each. Be sure to select wooden frames that do not have the cardboard stabilizer in the back (it gets in the way).
Step 2: Paint the frames with desired color of acrylic paint. Because we have a black fridge, I used contrasting white paint. Spraypaint is even faster to use but more messy.
Step 3: With a strong adhesive, glue your magnets to the 4 corners of the frame.
On the bigger frame, I used 6 magnets for extra security.
Once the adhesive dries, put your photos in the frames and arrange them on the fridge.
My fridge looked instantly more organized. Now I want to make more frames and cover the fridge!
The best part is that you can change the paint color as frequently as you like. You can even paint a pattern or stencil some text onto them. If going from a dark color to a lighter color, I recommend painting a coat of white in between.
