I am in love with today’s project – – Mini Frame Fridge Magnets! They’re a simple craft where you can let your personality shine through. I went with the fun bright colors, but it’d also be super awesome in black and gold or even some patterns. It just adds so much personality in the kitchen in a spot where it’s a little unexpected – like fridge bling 🙂
In case you are the pinning type, here’s a collage for that:
So, let’s get started with the tutorial!
First, you’re going to need some mini frames. I was sent mine from Cut It Out Frames to use on this post, but obviously I love them and recommend them. I’ve used their frames in the past as well. I just love the awesome shapes. I picked a variety, a couple of each type of frame, in the 2.5 x 3.5 Single Frame section.
Then paint the frame. I used craft paint, but in the past I have used wall paint. Just whatever I have sitting around, brushed on. I painted on two coats.
Since I used craft paint, I thought it would be beneficial to seal in the color, so I after the color was dry, I used a clear spray paint as a topcoat.
To print the pictures to the correct size, I just made myself a template (I use photoshop elements) that was a 4×6 picture with an opening in the middle sized to 2.5 by 3.5 – then I dropped my pictures in and printed the 4×6 pics and then cut off the outside border.
Now that you have your pictures in the frames, time to attach the magnets. I used hot glue, of course!
Prepping all the frames – having a bunch is what lends to the awesome impact.
See how awesome they look on display!!
With the magnets on the back, the frames have a 3-dimensional look and pop off of the fridge – love that:
They’re so cute, I couldn’t stop taking pictures!
And my photography assistant, aka, button addict:
I hope you enjoy these Mini Frame Fridge Magnets as much as I do. I’m actually going to give them to my mom for Mother’s Day (this is the test to see if she reads all the way to the bottom of my posts…) – so I think they’re a great gift as well as something awesome to keep for yourself (I think I need to make myself a set!).
If you like this project, here are a few more I know you’ll love:
