I made this cute project at a mothers group (not therapy, just fun). They were supposed to be for “love notes”, but I am the only girl in my house and I might be the only one who appreciates love notes. I am also the only one who writes love notes…maybe I should write love notes to myself. Great idea.
I figure if my boys can’t appreciate a good love note, then they might appreciate knowing where to find a girly looking marker or pen. Ok, as I write this, I realize that they probably won’t appreciate that either. But I do. I am obsessed with markers and colored pens and I hate pencils. I really do. They are the worst. Pens and markers rule! Now on to the project…
What you need:
Spray Paint (I used this awesome Chalkboard Spray Paint)
Magnents (like these)
So easy! Eat all of the mints in one sitting. Or put them in a plastic bag to save for later 🙂 Then glue the magnets to the back. When that dries, spray paint them whatever color you want. Let that dry, and you have an awesome pen holder, or a love note holder (if your family likes verbal affection).
- Maybe I should fill mine with dirt or corndogs! My 3 sons would enjoy their mother’s craft project for sure. Genius. Best mom ever! No really, can you imagine if I shoved corndogs in these. “Kids, lunch is on the fridge.” The uses are endless!
