Magnetic Photo Board DIY

I will just apologize now for these pictures.

They were taken in my garage/home when it was dark.

It just gets dark way too early right now.

I know, no excuses.

Anyways, I’m going out of town so I wanted to leave you guys with a tutorial before I go.

Here’s what it looks like:

It hasn’t been hung up yet, but when it is, I will take a better picture!

If you want to know how to do this, here’s the directions!

Magnetic Photo Board

1 picture frame–I recommend a big one so it holds more than a few pictures.  Mine was 16×20.

Sheet metal that matches the size of your frame.

Enough scrapbook paper to cover the metal–I used 3 sheets.

Modge Podge

Paint Brush


Magnets, Pictures, Notes, etc.

Lay down newspaper in a spacious area.

Cut the paper to match the sheet metal.

Modge Podge the paper to the sheet metal.  *Use a ruler or something flat to get the bubbles out*

Paint the whole top in Modge Podge and let it dry.

All done!  Mine still had bubbles because I did a bad job at the ruler part.  Which is why that’s important…

Remove the glass from the frame, put the sheet metal in it’s place, and cover the back.  You’re all done!  You can cover it with pictures, magnets, notes, etc.

Let me know what you guys think, and I would love to see pictures of yours!

Stay Serendipitous!
