Fabric Covered Magnetic Board


We have a bunch of coupons for free kids meals and other items that I want to keep out so I don't forget about them, but didn't have a good home for them.

They were either in a pile in the front seat of my car or in a pile in the kitchen.  I decided neither was working so I put the stuff on top of the dryer.  But they kept getting knocked off when I was folding clothes.  So, I decided to put a magnetic board in the laundry room.

I have seen fabric covered magnetic boards in several stores, and thought I would try to make one.  The hardest part of this project, BY FAR, was deciding on the fabric.  The rest was a piece of cake.

I chose a cheap, light magnetic board (23"x17") at Wal-Mart for $6.  I got the fabric at Hobby Lobby (1/2 yd.).  I chose mosaic tiles and then glued magnets to the back.

I ironed the wrinkles out of the thin cotton fabric quickly and then centered the board on the fabric.  I pulled one side over and began hot gluing the fabric to the back of the board.


I cut off the excess and continued all the way around.  I considered gluing the fabric to the front of the board as well, but decided against it.  If I ever want to change the fabric, this will be easier.  And, hot gluing it just on the back worked great.

These are the 1" mosaic tiles I picked up.  The colors worked with the fabric.

I hot glued Lowe's magnets to the back.

David hung it for me using the sticky things that come with the magnetic board and a ribbon I attached.  I considered hot gluing the ribbon around the edge of the board for added color, but decided against it. I liked it plain.

And now it's ready for all that stuff that didn't have a home.

I'm linking up to several parties next week.  Stop by and see more great projects!
