Do you make inspiration boards?
I love making inspiration boards for so many things like when decorating a room, or gathering new recipes when I’m in a food rut. But most of all, I like making inspiration boards for when I’m feeling a bit blah and feeling stuck for ideas. It’s at these times that a quote or an image can help spark something that eventually turns in to an idea for this blog.
While I love pinterest, sometimes I want my inspiration right in front of me, especially after a summer break with no routine. Each time I create one, I find that it gives me that little boost to get my creative juices flowing again. There are lots of ways to create an inspiration board but I find magnetic ones the best as you can so easily switch up your inspiration or add to it or change it up however you like, in seconds.
I needed magnets for my inspiration board and decided to make my own (of course!). I love all things wood, especially light wood, so I decided to make some oversized diy magnets with oak discs. I love how they turned out – so simple but so beautiful. Now I can’t stopping adding to my board!
Oversized DIY magnets
7.5cm x 1.5cm wooden discs (I used oak)*
strong large magnets (around 20mm diameter)
very strong glue (like super glue)
These wooden diy magnets couldn’t be easier to make. They don’t even need a how to. Simply stick the magnets on to the back of your wooden disc and you’re done!
These diy magnets are great to use on a fridge but I especially love them for a magnetic inspiration/notice board. They can also be painted but I kept mine as they were as I love the look and feel of natural wood.
Will you make these diy magnets?
P.S. Here’s another idea for diy magnets in wood.
