Lola loves… Making clothes pegs fridge magnets

 

 

Pinspiration day!

 

On Pinspiration day, I take an idea from Pinterest and use it to make a home DIY project. Today I’m making some clothes-peg fridge magnets first posted by blogger, Concretemoomin.

I have to admit that I think Concretemoomin’s are far cuter (even if I had taken a better picture) but I’m still pleased I made them, especially as they’ve proved so useful already and hold much more than my other magnets. At the moment, they are holding up some lovely wedding invites.

 

What you will need:

Clothes pegs
Paint in a variety of colours (I cheated and used Tippex for the white)
Two part expoxy resin glue (or other strong glue)
Small magnets
Scissors, including pinking shears if you have them
Scotch tape

 

Paint your pegs in whatever base colour you choose. I stuck to blue as they go with my kitchen, but I love the choice of colours on the original. Once dry, cut and stick Scotch tape to create a masked area. For the zig-zag effect, cut the tape with pinking shears first. Then apply your second colour.

Leave to dry and remove the tape. Then stick a magnet to the back using strong glue.
