Rustic Alphabet Magnets

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday. I hope those of you in the blizzard zone are all okay and snuggled up and warm today! I am in WV and we just got a little dusting.

I recently completed another cute little DIY for our Etsy shop and I had to share with you!



These Rustic Alphabet Magnets are such a fresh take on the old (ugly) classic plastic letters, don't you think?

This was a really easy DIY and took me less than a half hour from start to finish!



I had some leftover birch wood from the ornaments I made around Christmas time and one of the logs was smaller around than the ones I used for the ornaments so I had plenty of it left. I just cut off 26 slices with my chop saw.



You could do these in a variety of colors but I just chose 6 that were bright and fun.

I didn't sand them or anything, just painted the letters right onto the natural wood and hot glued the magnets to the back and that was that. 




I had to buy 4 eight packs of magnets in order to get enough. They were $2.99 each, I already had the wood and the paint, so this project cost me $12 dollars. Not too shabby!




The best part is that these magnets are the super heavy duty kind. They hold a ton of papers per magnet, unlike the cheap plastic letters that hold NOTHING! 



Pretty cool huh? I love them!




Thanks for lookin' y'all. Off to the Etsy shop they go.
