I took a little trip to target like I always do once a week and guess what I found! I cork board from target. I just could not believe how I found the one thing I was eying for a while on the clearance bin. I was so excited to find the cork board from target that I just knew I needed to find the special place for it where everyone can enjoy.
When I got home I started to put it in different places all over the apartment and nothing seem to be right until I reach the fridge!. I decided to add some magnets to the back of the cork board and see if it would hold.
I used super glue to attach the magnets to the back of the cork board. Then I went ahead let it dry and in a minute I had a magnet cork board.
I used it to display my family pictures from our last visit. It can be hard when family is so far away but making good memories is always what we try to do when we visit together.
Guess what I found these super cute reindeer clothespins which I could not help but get however, I knew that I wanted to do something that would display them some how. I kept shopping at target where I found these cute reindeer now I was in search for some magnets. Now to make reindeer clothespin magnet!
The basics are very simple. First I cut the magnets to fit the clothespins.
I then just peeled the backing on the magnet to glue on the clothespins and I cut any extra pieces that does not fit the clothespins.
Ta-da! All done. Now you can use them for a number of things. You can use them to hold you Christmas cards.
Or even on with your milk and chocolate. What will you be using your reindeer clothespins magnets. I find that my little kiddo likes to put this craft projects on it and they are just adorable. The possibilities of things you can do with it are endless and you just never know what special thing they can hold for you.
We did it again. Couple of my blogger friends and I got together and decided to make a challenge to each other with target’s dollar bin. On this challenge we decided to use $1 plastic bin makeover. At first I did not have any clue what I was planning to do with this bin. I did not have anything that I need to organize or needed to use for so what to do? Then when I was outside watering my succulent it came to me! Why not use it as a planter for my many succulents. However, just having a white bin was not going to do it. I always need to do something extra.
I had two vision for the bins and I did not know which one I was going to like most so I decide to to both and see which one looks best at the end. The good thing is that I got two white bin for $1!
The first bin I used black chalkboard paint and I sprayed it. I also did a couple of hole on the bottom to make sure the water will drain if I over water it.
I then spray painted the other white bin with silver metallic paint.
Once it was ll dried I added the soil and my succulents.
Now tell me which plastic bin makeover looks best to you? I am thinking of keeping one on my porch and one in my home. I do love having greenery in the home. Come and take a look at what my other fellow bloggers did with their dollar bins.
