Chalkboard Paint Magnets

Like most moms, I display my kid’s latest and greatest artwork on my fridge. And since my kids are still young, we have plenty of artwork. LOTS of artwork. After a while it gets a little muddled up, making it hard to separate it out into their separate things-to-save boxes. Until now. Turning some flat magnets into chalkboard magnets means that I can keep track of who’s are is who’s and they can see their name displayed proudly over their work. Win win.

Things you’ll need:
Flat metal magnets
Fine grit sand paper
Painter’s tape
Chalkboard paint
Foam brush

Things to do:
1. Tape off a section of the magnet large enough to write a name or initial on.
2. Lightly sand the exposed area, being careful not to rip the tape. This will help the paint adhere
3. Paint three coats of chalkboard paint, allowing each to dry before adding the next. Remove the tape carefully (you may need to run a craft knife along the edge of the tape)
4. Let the paint cure for at least a week before using.
