Peace Magnet Board

While visiting one of my favorite discount stores, Walls, I came across these.

Looking them over I kept thinking hmm?? What can I do with these?
Then I got a wild idea for party favor gifts for Hannah’s birthday.

When I flipped them over they where a mere $2.49 and from the Container Store, retailing for $24.99 each.

I bought all 11 that they had.

I tried Modge Podge…That turned out bad, real bad.

So, I resorted to my trusty spray paint.
Using masking tape, I taped a line off center. Spraying one side pink and the other a tangerine.
We’ll be having a PEACE OUT party so I picked these up here on etsy. Sprayed them with adhesive and Martha Glittered away.

Hot glued the peace sign to the steel and used some really cool brown jute that I got at Goodwill for .50 cents.

And tada…

A really cool party favor for $3 bucks each. So much better than giving plastic junk.
