Fabric Covered Magnet Boards

About a month ago I bought these 3 Magnet boards with the intention of covering them with fabric and putting them on a wall to have as a place to hang photos and kids artwork, etc.

At the time I bought the Magnet boards I also went ahead and made the magnets with the glass marbles and scrapbooking paper underneath it.


Here's my fabric I bought at Hobby Lobby. I wanted something fairly neutral so that I could spruce it up and change it out with either fabric rosettes or any other accessory.

I used my Glue Gun to glue the fabric around the back of the metal.

 There were pre-made holes in two of the corners to either hang it on nails (this is what I did) or you could tie pretty ribbon on it and hang it from the ribbon.

Here they are all three done with my magents on them.

This is what happened when my 2 year old found they were magnetic.

This is the ugly wall it's going on. I had my chicken wire frame hanging here to hang the photos and such on with mini clothes pins...After 4 years I was sick of looking at it and needed a change.

Here they are hanging up. Next week I am getting a Vinyl saying to hang above it. By the photo you can't tell but these really are centered on this wall. I'm thinking maybe hanging them higher and putting a shelf below them to put knick knacks on and maybe some hooks to hang stuff from too. What do you think? I know that it looks pretty bare right now but it's much better than the chicken wire deal!

Felt Heart Wreath

I won a small giveaway over at The Idea Room yesterday, I didn't win any products or anything but I won a spot on her sidebar to have my blog listed there! Sweet huh?! She has so many readers and I'm hoping that some will come here and check me out too!

Because I love the Idea Room's blog I thought I would post a REALLY cool project she did for Valentines 2010. I want to do this project since it's almost time for Valentines again and I bought the cutest copper wreath stand on clearance at Target.
 I need to go get a bunch of felt from Joann's to do this and I'm wondering if there is a better way to cut circles out? Does that circle cutter thing of Martha Stewart's cut through fabric??

Empty Pictures frames grouped together (my husband would HATE this!)

Grouped Mirrors, Again my husband would hate this.

My husband would LOVE this picture grouping

I wished so badly that I had a kitchen window because I would do this and have all sort of beautiful plants.

These curtains are made out of mens handkerchiefs...Amazing, would probably take MINUTES to make this.

Reindeer Food!

This is a GREAT idea for tonight and will take virtually no time at all to get it ready! I can't wait until my kids are a little older to understand these things and I can do them with them...I will have to store it away in my memory bank.

Mix all together. This is something your children can do.

Now if you wanted to package up a few bags and give to a few of your neighbors, you might want to print up these free tags from Kim at TomKat Studios. She’s so good. Such cute tags!
