You like tuna?? We eat a lot of tuna around here… fresh and canned. And the other night, when I looked at the tiny cute tuna cans I got the idea to make another set of magnets for our fridge. Spring magnets. So that’s what I’m showing you today. DIY mini planter magnets using tuna cans. And believe me when I say that our fridge looks like a little flower garden right now. Because a while back I made these cute ranunculus magnets you might remember and I didn’t want to take them down, so there is a lot of flower power going on on the fridge!
DIY Mini Planter Magnets Using Tuna Cans
Ok, these magnets are more for decorating purposes, they might be good for big notes, but not so much for the smaller ones. Oh well, who cares when the fridge can look so happy right?
1. Here’s what you need:
*Affiliate links used to show like or similar products.
small empty & washed tuna cans
artificial greens [I just cut off small pieces off of my artificial potted plants]
hot glue gun [not shown below]
mod podge & paint brush [not shown below]
Please excuse the poor photos above, this happened at night 😉
2. Cover the tuna cans with mod podge and then press the twine all around the cans. It will adhere very quickly but you can still easily move it in place.
3. Originally I had planned to leave two cans just bare, only adding the lace ribbon, but I ended up hating it, so that is why you see the lace on this can without the ribbon. I covered all 4 with twine at the end and glued the moss inside the can using hot glue.
4. Then, just adding little bits of artificial greens to the moss, I also put a dab of hot glue on each so they’d stay put. At the end I added the self adhesive lace ribbon to only two of them.
I added fabric strings to the other two because I just wanted that bit of colour to it all as well.
At the very end, glue on the magnets using hot glue. My magnets were small so I needed to glue on two to each can. But if you buy bigger ones I’m sure one will do just fine.
So what do you think? Time to give that fridge some Spring vibes?
