Magnetic Photo Holder Tutorial

My back up plan for the One Crafty Contest entry was to make a magnetic photo display using a cardboard block letter. I got this K because it can stand by itself.
I painted it with the magnetic paint 2 times.

While that was drying, I made my magnets. I used these Tim Holtz numbers, very strong magnets from Hobby Lobby, and a hot glue gun to attach them.

I chose three numbers, the year each of us was born (69, 74, 08).

I painted two layers of turquoise acrylic paint.

I stenciled a design on the vertical part of the letter K using red. Not perfectly stenciled but it just adds a little character.

Don't worry. I moved the 69 magnet off of Sophia's head. :)

My back up plan was way easier than the magnetic art display so I could work on it while I was waiting for paint to dry on the wall display.
