DIY Gold Magnetic LettersThis Post May Contain Affiliate Links. Please Read Our Disclosure Policy
Okay, so I have a super easy and totally fabulous “I Create” for you today! You know how much I’m loving gold these days. Well, I’m taking it to a whole new level with this project. As much as I wish I could take credit for the awesomeness, I actually saw the idea on Pinterest. Go figure. As soon as I did however, I knew I had to recreate it. I believe it was Jan of Poppytalk who pinned the idea. So thank you, Jan!
As you may have guessed from the title and pictures, I made gold magnetic letters. Tell me they are not fun! I loved these letters as a kid and I may love them even more as an adult.
To make the letters, you will need magnetic letters, plastic primer spray paint, and gold spray paint. I found these particular letters on Amazon because that’s pretty much where I find a lot of things these days. Both paints are from Walmart. I am crazy about this gold paint. Remember I used it to paint my plant stands? Despite how it looks on the cap, the color and sheen are perfect.
In a well-ventilated area, on a piece of paper or cardboard, start by spraying the back of your letters with the primer. I sprayed right over the magnets. They hold just as well with the paint. (Though, be aware that these letters aren’t really designed to post notes and pictures since the magnet is very small.) Cover both sides of the letters with two coats of the primer; then follow with two coats of the gold or until the letters are completely painted. Allow time for drying in between each coat.
That’s it! I told you this project would be super easy.
Aren’t they beautiful, too?
I immediately covered my refrigerator with them. I think they would look amazing on a black magnetic surface, but I don’t have one. Taking pictures on a white glossy refrigerator is a challenge. I considered making a magnetic chalkboard, but I ran out of time and didn’t have the necessary supplies.
I know I’m going to have some fun with these!
So what do you think of the gold letters? Are you going to make some “bling” for your fridge?
