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!
