Supplies needed for magnet board. Foam core, fabric, picture frame, sheet of metal.
First lay out your supplies. Be sure to iron fabric, so finished board will not have wrinkles.
Cut metal with tin snips to fit frame. Place cut metal sheet on fabric. Cut fabric leaving 3 inches around edges of metal.
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.
Completed magnet board! I just love the colors and pattern of this fabric.
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.
