DIY Cat Magnets

by Amy Azzarito

When I stumbled upon a package of 12 mini cats on Amazon, they were in my cart before you could say, “Who would order a bunch of miniature plastic cats?” I figured that when it came to mini cats, one should buy first and think later. It only took a minute of having these beauties in my possession to come up with a project. After years of keeping all my photos online only, I’ve been on a kick of printing out photos and sticking them to my refrigerator. I decided that these mini cats would make the perfect magnets. It’s my favorite kind of project — super simple and cat inspired. (Oh and if you’d like to do this with dogs, I’ve got you covered right here.) — Amy Azzarito

1. Spray paint the cats any color of your choosing and let dry according to package instructions.

2. For those cats you’d like to be coming out of the refrigerator, simply use the scissors (and some muscle) to snip them in half.

3. Use the Gorilla Glue to adhere the Tiny Mighties magnets in place.

4. Stick your magnet on your fridge!
