Project Pinterest- Magnet/Cork Board

I can't believe that today is the last day of November! This month has flown by and too quickly! One of my favourite things is that today is the last day of Movember- thank goodness!
Like every other person, I am addicted to Pinterest and I've decided to actually try and make some of my pins. My first Pinterest project was a magnet board. I couldn't find the original Pin, but you can find a similar one here (originally taken from here). 

I decided to modify the Pin and add a cork board as well. 

You will need:

  1. Magnets
  2. Fabric
  3. Hot glue gun
  4. Cookie Sheet
  5. Glue gun sticks
  6. Push pins
  7. Cork
All material, with the exception of the fabric, was purchased at The Dollar Store. The fabric, I picked up at a local quilting store.

I started by cutting the cork to fit half of the cookie sheet (I actually got my dad to do this).

Next, I covered the bottom part of the cookie sheet with a piece of fabric, gluing the fabric to the inside of the cookie sheet. I covered the cork in a different piece of fabric.

I then glued the cork to the fabric covered cookie sheet.

The final, and most challenging, part of this project was the magnets. I would suggest just buying magnets you like, so much easier. But I covered the magnets in fabric. After several attempts and methods, I just cut circles in the fabric and glued the circle on top of the magnet.

The finished product:

I originally wrote about this project back in February, as one of my Favourite Things. You can find my original post here.
