Dollar Store Makeover:  Handmade Decorative Magnetic Board

Dollar Store Makeover: Handmade Decorative Magnetic Board



Here is a very frugal and very cute Dollar store makeover where I show you how to make a handmade decorative magnetic board!  This DIY  magnetic board can be used to display inspirational or funny quotes, or your photos!

Stove Burner Cover 

Ribbon – about 4″ long (for hanging)

Scrapbook Paper

Glue Stick

Sea Grass Rope

Hot Glue Gun

Magnets (check out the ones I have made over on my Handmade Amazon Shop!)

How To Make Your DIY Magnetic Board:

You can get your stove burner covers at the Dollar Tree – 2 for $1!  There is a variety of “interesting” patterns, that in my opinion, I am very happy to cover up with some good looking scrapbook paper design instead.  🙂

You need to get your hot glue gun and glue on some thin white ribbon (about 4″ long) that you will use to hang your magnetic board when it is done.

Find a sheet of scrapbook paper that you’d like the background of your magnetic board to be.  Then simply trace the stove cover on the 12×12″ scrapbook paper.  Cut out the circle – it doesn’t have to be perfect since we are covering the edge with sea grass rope.

Use your glue stick and smear it all over the back of the scrapbook paper.  Line up the paper to the edge of the stove cover and smooth the paper so that there are no wrinkles or air bubbles.

I sometimes need to use an exacto knife and trim off any edges of paper that might not be centered perfectly and are hanging off of the edge a bit.

Then cut the length of sea grass rope that will become the border of the oven cover.  The larger 10″ covers need about 31″ of sea grass rope.

Use your hot glue gun and glue the sea grass rope down every few inches.  This gives it a nice clean and finished look – and can cover up any imperfect cutting of the scrapbook paper.

Glue the rope down all the way around the edge and trim it so that it fits nice and tight so that the seam is not noticeable.

Then you need to select a photo to now display on your handmade decorative magnetic board!  The larger burner covers will hold up to a 5×7″ photo.  I have also laminated some inspirational messages and added those to the boards.  First,  you’ll need some magnets to attach your photo to the board.  I used flat glass marbles and painted the flat side with glitter nail polish.  I then glued on a small rare earth magnet.
