DIY – How To Make a Magnetic Picture Frame Display

It’s time for me to start focusing on craft shows.  I took a little time earlier in the year to work on new ideas for Dreaming in Craft and I had some family stuff come up.  Now I need to get to work getting ready to take all my new products to craft shows later in the year.  :-)

One of the things I’m most excited about this craft show season is working on a new booth display.  Last year I didn’t really have a design.  I just displayed everything on the table.  This year I plan to make it really special to fit with the look of Dreaming in Craft.  I’m really excited about some of the ideas I have already.  Last year I made a magnetic picture  frame to display some felt pins and I thought I would share how I made it in case any of you would like to try for your own craft show displays.

That’s it!  Wasn’t that easy?

If you make a magnetic frame I would love to see pictures of it with your products on display.  Just comment with a link to the location or email me at dreamingincraft@gmail.com!


Make it Work

I will be at the SoCo Pop-Up shops market on South Congress by the food trailers in Austin today.  If you’re in the area stop by and say hi!
Remember my new felt pins?
I’m taking them with me to the market today so I needed a way to display them on the table.  First I was going to just take a cute plate and set them on there but then I remembered that outdoor markets are tricky because of the wind.  I usually end up taping things down to the table so I’m not chasing them all day.  I bought a “metal” picture frame at Walmart for really cheap and planned to print out my business logo for the frame and then attach the pins around the edge.  Then I figured out why the frame was only $4!  It wasn’t metal!  Not magnetic at all!
I knew there was a way to turn a frame into a magnetic board so I hit the internet to figure out what kind of metal I would need to buy to put in the frame.  I found this simple tutorial on Daisy Craft and she used a piece of sheet metal and cut it down to size.
I decided to change it up and cover the metal with fabric instead of paper.  It just seemed more like me.  I love fabric!
I didn’t cut the fabric at all.  It’s just folded to the back and taped down.  That way I can change out the fabric anytime I want and still use it for other projects!
Here’s the finished product!
What do you think?  Have you made any displays for your crafts?  I would love to hear about what you made.
