As my refrigerator became masked with postcards, birthday notes, invitations and vintage Polaroids, my collection of mismatched magnets started to make my display appear junky. After refusing to edit down my favorite moments and souvenirs, I decided to switch my focus to the magnets. I transformed my neon alphabet letters to graphic color-blocked magnets. This simple DIY reflected a more modern style, while highlighting my adored mementos. Whether you want a fresh kitchen update or a budget-friendly gift, we’ve got you covered.
- Wooden alphabet magnets
- White spray paint
- Metallic spray paint
- Painter’s tape
Coat the alphabet letters evenly with white spray paint. Let completely dry.
Use painter’s tape to cover parts of the letters you want to remain white. Ensure tape is secure to guarantee straight edges.
Coat the taped letters with metallic spray. Let completely dry.
After the letters have completely dried, carefully unwrap them. It’s now time to arrange and admire your new fridge display.
Happy crafting, friends!
