DIY Wood Veneer Magnets

Posted by Meghan Quinones

Okay, now I know I just did a magnet DIY, but I could not resist doing another one!

I had picked up the American Craft Wood Veneer Frames a while back and had originally thought I would use them for a Valentine's Day craft. Well, Valentine's Day has come and gone, so I was trying to come up with another project idea for my frames. I was thinking of incorporating my frames in a layout, until I saw my magnets. I was torn! I just knew I had to turn my wood frames into mini magnets. Let's be honest, these magnets are WAY cuter than a layout!

To decorate my frames, I just used paper, stickers, and embellishments I already had on hand. I love projects that come up where you can actually use the extra supplies you keep for a raining day. Well, this project is the rainy day you have been waiting for! Grab some frames and all of your embellishments and get making!

Here's what you'll need:

  • American Crafts Wood Veneer Frames
  • Pattern Paper
  • Embellishments
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Magnets
  • Glue Dots
  • Foam Circles

Let's get crafty!

To start, I grabbed a sticker, placed it on a piece of white cardstock, and glued a wood frame around it.

I placed one of my wooden frames over a piece of scrapbook paper. Then, I traced around my frame and cut out my paper.

I ended up stitching an arrow on my wooden frame with holes in it. I started at the bottom right and went down the second hole in the second row of my frame.

I continued to create the feathers of my arrow until I had three. I then did a straight line down the center of my frame and finished with the tip of the arrow at the end of my frame.

I turned my frame over and added glue to the back.

I added my paper to the back of my frame then glue my frame to the center with a foam circle.

I added a glue dot to the back of my magnet.

I turned my wooden frame over and added my magnet to the back.

I used my Copic Markers on a couple of my frames to add a pop of color. I then added more embellishments, paper, and stickers to my frames.
