DIY: Fun Photo Fridge Magnets You Can Make in Minutes

That’s right, it’s the weekend, and that means we can’t let you start your week off without first taking on a little DIY project. No worries if you’re not very tech savvy though, this one won’t require that you know how to solder anything. Today, we’ll show you how to make some fun little photo magnets for your refrigerator.

This particular DIY project comes to us courtesy of Photojojo, and it’s as easy as it gets. All you’ll need is some photos (or copies you don’t mind cutting up), glue that works on glass, .75-inch circular magnets, little clear glass circles from your local hobby store, scissors, a pen and a quarter.

Using the quarter, you’ll trace around the circle of photo you want to cut out. Then, cut out the circle making sure to get the pen marks as well, or else they’ll show up magnified.

Next you’ll spread a little bit of glue on the underside of the glass circle and stick the photo to it, holding it there for about 30 seconds so it doesn’t move around. Then put some glue on the magnet and stick it to the underside of the photo.

And that’s it, just give the glue a couple of hours to set completely and you’re done. They’re great for yourself or, if you want to give them as gifts or party favors, the folks at Photojojo made the great suggestion of putting a few in an old Altoids tin:
