What a fantastic idea! And believe me, it is great no matter what occasion and no matter how old you are. Until there is a personal touch to it, the gifted person is going to love it. So don’t waste any time and learn how to make your own fridge magnets. You need very minimal supplies to make it and there are a few ways too.
You can buy ready magnet canvas’ which is about 2.5 inches by 2.5 inch in size but if you are more ambitious and would like to have it a bit bigger you can buy just a canvas 3″ x 3″ or 4″ x 4″ in size. Those don’t come with a magnet at the back of it so you will need a photo magnet sheet which is self-adhesive. You just need to use a pair of scissors to cut the right size and stick it to the back of the canvas.
Now you just need to get a small brush and some acrylic paints and get to work. You can obviously find tons of designs online. Try to pick an easy one if you are a beginner artist. You should focus on one object and try to work out details as good as you can to achieve the great result.
If it is a birthday gift you can go for simple flowers, paint a teddy, doll, or a train, just think about something that is going to be close to the interests or hobbies of the special person who will receive the gift.
If it’s Christmas, you can paint a tree with decorations on it or a snowman with a red hat on his head. For Mothers Day you can paint a sunset that your mom loves or maybe a hot air balloon which she always dreamt about. The possibilities are endless.
I hope this was a super easy explanation on how to make your own fridge magnet and you will become the famous person in your family who gives away these fantastic little magnet canvas’ of art which they can see on their fridge everyday. Good Luck!
