Easy Washi Tape Magnets

Something happened this weekend that's pretty rare in my house. I completed a DIY project without spending a cent. It's a miracle! Seriously though I almost always get a great idea for a quick and easy project, then it spirals out of control and ends up costing my at least $50-$100 (like the icecream shop for Max that I'm currently planning in my head). Not this time though. I had everything I needed already for these magnets. Even if I had needed to buy supplies I think it would have only cost a few dollars.



I've seen magnets like these just about everywhere already on the internet and they were so easy to make. It was just a matter of sticking the tape on my magnets (which came in a packet with the ones I used for Max's fishing game) and trimming the tape down to size. I cut each one in half and then snipped the ends of each magnet to give it that 'torn tape' look.

It took me less than ten minutes to make them and they look so cute on the fridge!




 





What do you think about sticking things on the fridge? Before I had kids I was 100% adamant that my fridge would never be covered in photos, invites or scribbled artwork. Of course that changed the minute Max drew his first picture! Now I proudly display everything on the fridge and I wouldn't have it any other way!

(Oh and if you love the washi tape I used you can find all of it at Chibi Run one of my favourite online shops).

  8. Such a great project! And love that it costs nothing :) I always try to have a clean fridge and instead have a noticeboard for all the invites, drawings, photos, cards etc. but it's so hard and ends up getting stuff on it anyway! There's just something about a clean fridge that makes the whole living space look clean if you ask me... but of course, your new magnets would make the whole living space look so much nicer!

    1. I know exactly what you mean Sophie! Before I had kids I loved having a completely bare fridge. It makes the kitchen look more 'high end' :).
