i purchase a lot of quirky art at flea markets, with the vision of a creating a massive, gallery-like collection somewhere down the road. but sometimes there are pieces that, for whatever reason, never make it on the wall and end up just sitting around. i decided to re-purpose one such painting and turn it into a fun magnetic note board! this is perhaps the easiest thing to make ever; the hardest part is finding the painting. click here for the full post and instructions or just click “read more” below- happy crafting! – kate
What You’ll Need:
1. metal board (is used the BITS ikea office board, $10)
2. painting on canvas (large enough to cover your metal surface)
3. hot glue gun
1. Start by ripping your canvas off its original stretcher bars and place it face down.
2. Lay your metal board on back of the canvas and if it’s too big, you can cut the sides of the canvas down to leave an inch on either side of the board. Make sure you like how the image is cropped on the front before you cut.
3. Glue the edges to the back of the metal board with the hot glue. Glue one side at a time and pull the canvas tight before you glue.
4. If you covered the holes on the board with the canvas, use the scissors to poke through the respose the hole so you can hang the piece.
TIP: If your painting is on heavy weight canvas or the paint is thick, i recommend using mighty magnets or other very strong magnets to make sure things stay put.
