Tutorial: magnet board

IMG_1662

Supplies needed for magnet board. Foam core, fabric, picture frame, sheet of metal.

IMG_1661

First lay out your supplies. Be sure to iron fabric, so finished board will not have wrinkles.

IMG_1682

Cut metal with tin snips to fit frame. Place cut metal sheet on fabric. Cut fabric leaving 3 inches around edges of metal.

IMG_1693

Cut foam core slightly smaller than the piece of metal that you cut to fit the frame. Place fabric, followed by metal sheet into frame. Fold fabric over the piece of metal. Secure magnet board by adding the foam core on top of the fabric and metal. You want it to be a tight fit.

IMG_1691

Completed magnet board! I just love the colors and pattern of this fabric.

IMG_1663

Another completed magnet board. I did not keep either of the magnetic boards for myself, but sent them off to college for my daughter and her roommate. These are so easy to make that I know I will be making one for myself and several as gifts this holiday season.

Cloche

glass cloche housing an easter display

 

A cloche was originally a french word for bell that referred to a bell shaped glass dome that served as a covering for protecting plants from cold temperatures. Today, cloche still refers to a bell shaped glass dome, but the dome may be used as a cover for protecting plants but more often than not a cloche is used to cover a decorative display. You can find cloche’s covering old books, clocks, bird’s nests, keepsakes, teacups and yummy desserts. Enjoy browsing through this post featuring the cloche.Maybe you’ll find a great idea to bring into your home.
