DIY Alphabet Magnets
Last week on Tu Mañana, I made these super cute DIY Alphabet Magnets + they were such a big hit that I had to share them with you here.
I got inspired to make this tutorial thanks to my little cousin Katita. You see, when Katita was 4 my aunt asked her what she wanted for Christmas + she responded: “Alphabet magnets for the fridge”. “Say what?”, thought my aunt. She was a bit perplexed to say the least. She couldn’t understand it, specially because she was so used to the big gigantic Santa lists the rest of us made, LOL. So Katita’s simple + very unique request really touched us all that Holiday Season + we still don’t forget it. And today I’m celebrating it by showing all of you how to make a home crafted version of the famous plastic Fisher Prize-like alphabet fridge magnets.
For these project you’ll need:
- Carton paper
- Whole punch
- Exacto knife
- Paint brush
- Acrylic paints
- Silicon glue
step by step
After gathering your materials…
Step 1: With the pencil, draw the letters unto the carton. Make them a little fat for coloring later.
Step 2: Carefully cut the letters with your scissors. Use the exacto knife for precision angles + your whole punch for letters that have insides.
Step 3: With your paint brush + paints, color your letters.
Step 4: Make them extra pretty.
Step 5: Time to glue on your magnets to the back. Use clothespins to secure adhesion.
Step 6: Voila! You are now ready to beautify your fridge!
