I have this little area in my office that needs some artwork. It is near the coffee pots, so you know it is one of the most important areas in the office
Anyway I was at the dollar store and saw these really cute placemats and thought they were perfect. With some dollar store frames I was able to get 6 pictures for $7! What a deal!
Here is how I did it:
~ Placemat (I got mine from the dollar store)
~ frames ( I got mine from the dollar store)
~ I used the glass from the frame as a template for the correct size, and I just drew around the glass
~ Then I cut the placemat along the pencil lines.
~ Place it in the frame and you are done! Some patterns might be too close together so you might want 2 placemats so you have a little more freedom as to where to cut out the desired design.
And that is it! A very easy project that didn’t cost too much and it will be a perfect addition to the office!
I have these left over chip board glitter letters. I love the color and and glitteryness but I only have a few letters left, so I though they would be perfect for this magnet project. But with so few options I had to figure out what to spell and “Be Kind” just stood out.
Be Kind is a motto that I try and live by. I don’t know what people are going through so I always try to be kind, no matter what the situation. So this is a nice reminder that I put in my office at work. I think being kind to each other is one of the most important things we can do.
So here is how I made these chip board magnet letters.
~ magnetic sheets
~ glue (I used Loctite)
~ scissors and Exacto knife
~ The letter have an adhesive back so I pealed off the paper backing and I pealed off the paper protecting the magnetic sheet
~ Glue on the letter to the magnet. This is probably not necessary, but I like to be sure it won’t come off so I thought a little glue was a good idea.
~ Cut around the letter. I used scissors and an Exacto knife to get around all the edges.
And you are done. I think they turned out super cute. What letters do you need to use up and what do they spell?
I hope you all are having a great week so far. Our weekend snow storm ended on Sun and now the sun is out and the weather is beautiful. I love spring in Colorado!
Anyway, I was at the Dollar Store the other day (of course I was at the Dollar Store… I seem to be there a lot, haha) and while I was there I saw these really cute Disney action figures. Once I saw them I knew they would be perfect as magnets and tacks for my office.
This is a pretty easy DIY so here you go.
~ magnets or tacks
~ glue (I used Loctite)
~ Masking tape
~ Find where you want to place the tack or magnet, some of the action figures are easier to figure out than others. I had a little bit of a hard time with Donald because of the way his back is arched, but eventually I did find a good spot to glue his tack on.
~ I rough up the spot where I wanted to glue down the magnet or tack, this will help adhere the glue. I also roughed up the tack.
~ glue the magnet or tack in place. I put masking tape over the magnet or tack to help hold it in place while the glue was drying.
~ FYI Dory had to be trimmed in the back so she could lay flat. Some of your action figures may need to be trimmed as well.
And that is it, I can’t wait to go back to the dollar store and see what other action figures they have and see what I can do with them!
