Decoupaged Monogrammed Magnets

I am not the biggest fan of decoupage (I know I'm crazy). It all goes back to a color theory class in college and a failed attempt at a decoupaged assignment. BUT - I really love some of the things that I have seen around the blogging world that involve decoupage. So I decided to pull out the Mod Podge and give it another try.

I made these really cute monogrammed clothes pin magnets!!



Here are the materials that I used (forgot to photo the magnets):



First I cut my paper to fit the clothes pin and then I followed the instructions on the Mod Podge and attached the paper to the pin.



I was pretty satisfied with how they looked but I decided I wanted to add something to them. I dug through my letter drawer (yes I have a drawer full of letters) and found a size and shape that I liked - and decoupaged them in coordinating paper.



Then I used my hot glue gun to attach the letter to the pin!


Thats all - simple and really cute!



ps. I am going to use these as part of a housewarming gift...the person receiving this gift reads this blog so I guess I'm giving away part of a secret. (and I'm sure she can figure it out since the monograms are the first initials of her and her family...)


I'll be linking this to all of my favorite linky parties...check the Linky Party tab above for those parties and go and check them out!!!!

Love them - I made some decoupaged clothes pins a few months back and everyone who sees them loves them... might have to give these a try soon.
