Glass Tile Magnets

I love to put pictures and little notes up on our fridge at home, but I really dislike all the magnets that I have that are full of advertisements from pizza places, drugstores, and whatever else.  I saw this quick project in a magazine and had to try it.  I must say it they look a lot nicer than the magnets I was using.  You can buy the tiles from Home Depot, or maybe even ask if they have any damaged ones that they would give you for free or at least discounted.  My brother-in-law owns a tile store, so he hooked me up with a box full of ones that they had sitting around as left overs.....Thank-you, Mike!

Items needed:
  • Magnet Sheet (I found some at the Dollar Store) - Use stronger magnets if you want to hold up heavier items
  • Glass Tiles, in whatever colour you want
  • Glue Gun
  • Scissors




1. Cut the magnet sheet into the size needed to fill the entire back side of the tile.

2. Using the glue gun, glue the magnet to the back of the tile.


3. Allow time to dry, and Voila!!!  You have beautiful, new magnets!!!!:)
