Fabric Covered Magnets Project

Have you ever received a mini calendar in the mail? You know the kind that has a magnet at the top of the calendar with an ad for a real estate agent or dentist. What do you do with the magnet once the calendar year has finished?

Well, I've come up with a project that's the perfect way to recycle those magnets so that you don't have to throw them out in the garbage. It's a really simple project and it's really fast to complete! It's my Fabric Covered Magnet project.

Take a magnet from a mini calendar and tear off the calendar and the ad covering the magnet. Cut a piece of fabric slightly larger than the magnet. Using spray adhesive, glue the fabric to the magnet. Turn it over and spray the edges of the fabric. Fold the edges of the fabric over the magnet to create smooth edges. Your recycled magnet is now finished! Put it on your fridge and let it brighten your day every time you see it!

If you liked this project, you can find more free project ideas on my website. Try them out and leave a comment on my blog - I'd love to hear from you!
