DIY Mason Jar Lid Magnets

Let’s start the week with a nice, easy project.  Shall we?  It’s not that it’s been a tough weekend or anything.  In all actuality, it was a really good weekend!  I got to do some flower shopping, got out for a little bit with my husband Saturday night, and hit up a couple garage sales (I found some great stuff including a vintage chalkboard and a cute, rustic crate filled with milk bottles).  However, my brain has been in blog overload mode again.  I had a pretty large cleanup to do that took up a lot of my time.  I almost didn’t think I’d have a post to share today until I remembered this project!

So today I’m sharing a super easy DIY that will only take up a little of your time, but leave you with a great, memory-filled display for your fridge!  I have so many extra lids left from canning.  Rather than tossing them in the trash, I decided to get crafty. This simple DIY will allow you to display photos, cards, whatever, and chalkboard messages in a creative, magnetic fashion.

To make photo magnets:

SUPPLIES

  • Mason jar seals and lids
  • E6000 glue
  • Photographs, cards, postcards, etc.
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush
  • 1/2″ round magnets

STEPS

  1. Make sure your seals and lids are clean if using old ones.
  2. Next, trace a circle around the image you would like to display using your seal as a stencil.  Cut your photo out and set aside.
  3. Glue your seal onto the the lid with E6000.  Allow glue to dry.
  4. Brush Mod Podge onto the inside of the lid.  Then, paste your image onto the seal.  Allow Mod Podge to dry.
  5. Brush a coat of Mod Podge onto the photo.  Allow Mod Podge to dry.
  6. Use a dot of E6000 to adhere magnets to the back of your lids.  Let dry before displaying.

To make chalkboard magnets:

SUPPLIES

  • Mason jar seals and lids
  • E6000 glue
  • Chalkboard paint
  • 1/2″ round magnets

STEPS

  1. Make sure your seals and lids are clean if using old ones.
  2. Next, paint the inside of the lid and seal with chalkboard paint.  Let dry.
  3. Glue magnet rounds on the back of the lid.
  4. Write messages or draw pictures inside of the magnet using chalk or chalkboard markers and display.
