Dollar store quick craft: Magnet Board Tutorial

This is a great, EASY, quick craft that I threw together with items from the local Dollar Tree.

I found these great metal "art" sheets, and knew just what to do with them.

Out to the "spray paint place" it went.

I should have skipped this step all together, because look what happened...

These metal sheets are almost exactly the same size as a 12 X 12 sheet of scrapbook paper, and really didn't need to be painted.

Using my favorite crafting medium....

and adding a few embellishments.....

I ended up with this...

It's perfect for my daughters' room.

If you'd like a kit with detailed instructions, just let me know!


  1. this is too cute!! i hope my dollar store has this little metal "art thingy" ! i want it for the kitchen to leave my bf notes... or chores... hahaha

  2. I had no idea that you could find stuff like this at a dollar store! What a really neat idea!

  3. How adorable, gives the dollar store a whole new meaning.

  4. What a great idea! You definitely made that ugly dollar store thing into something super cute!

  5. Very good idea & thrifty. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday, would love if you added a link or button back to the party:)

  6. The tire track made me laugh out loud.

  7. Awesome, now I have to go to the dollar store and find some of these. Perfect for the kitchen and the kid's room. My daughter recently got a few sets of magnets and they are all over the house.

  8. I think you should have just gone with the tire track. It looked awesome. At first, I thought it was the desired effect. It would look cool in a boy's room. Use a chain for the hanger.

  9. I just hit up my local Dollar Tree and was thrilled to find this exact item on clearance for a quarter each! Hello, co-worker Christmas presents!
