I like big cookies and I cannot lie… wait, what? Okay, now that my Sir Mix A Lot reference is out of the way, it’s time to talk about this DIY Magnet Board. Do you have one? What do you use it for? Up until recently I had this giant cork board that has since fallen and cracked beyond repair. Don’t ask me what happened. I’m blaming the cat.
So I needed a new, fun way to keep track of upcoming things, leave a note for the room mate, or just plain have it as decoration. I’m a big believer in the whole form and function thing as I move forward in life. I guess it’s part of the “de-cluttering” thing I’m attempting and potentially failing at. I’m also using a lot of 3M Command Strips to hang things. Honestly, I’m a bit in love with them. Command strips are great and mighty for hanging pretty much anything. They can take the weight and are better than putting nails in your rental!
BUT! Did you know you could make one out of a pizza pan? Yep! So get thee to a dollar tree and let’s make some fun stuffs!
Time: 1 hour + dry time
Cost: Under $10
Cuteness level: 9
Sugar Cookie DIY Magnet Board
Round Pizza Pan (from the dollar tree)
Gold Spray Paint
Small round paint brush
Acrylic paint in your desired frosting and sprinkles colors
Medium to fine grit sand paper (or brillo pad if you have one on hand)
Clear sealant spray paint
3M Command Strips (For Hanging)
1. Using the sand paper, very gently sand the surface of your pan. This will help the paint to adhere. Just one or two times around in a sweeping motion should do it.
2. In a well ventillated area, spray the front of the pizza pan with gold spray paint. Let it dry.
3. On your dry gold pan, freehand a large squiggly circle with your chosen frosting color and foam brush to form the icing part of your cookie. Paint it in. Don’t worry about streaks, you’re going to do about 3 more coats of this total. Let dry.
4. Once your icing is dry, use a round brush to paint sprinkles on your Sugar Cookie DIY Magnet Board using your chosen colors. Let dry
5. Once all of your paint is dry, it’s time to do a final spray with the sealant. I love using this because it gives everything a nice shine and brings the look together. It also keeps paint from chipping. If you don’t have sealant spray, you can get it from the hardware store (just look for clear spray paint) or you can use a coat of mod podge.
6. Once it’s all dry, grab your 3M command strips and get to hanging. We put ours right next to the breakfast bar so we can all see it!
