It’s time for some DIY leftovers! Remember this project, and this one too? I’ve had some little cement hexagons laying around since I finished those projects and I’ve just been wondering what the heck to do with ’em. Finally figured it out! When in doubt, put a magnet on it. If you tried either of those other projects and have some extras, this is the perfect use for them! If not, read on for the downlow.

Make Time: 30 Minutes (Plus Drying Time)
We’ve been through this before, right? If you need instructions on how to make the cement hexagons there are complete steps right here. Piece of cake! Once your cement is dried, mask off half of the face of the hexagon and paint the unmasked portion. Remove the washi tape and let the paint dry. Then just flip the hexagons over, add a dot of E6000 to the center of the back, and pop a magnet on there. Let the glue dry and YAYYYYY awesome magnets to make your fridge happy. I’ve been playing with arrangements on our refrigerator door since I finished these little dudes.
I know you’re starting to gear up for holiday gift giving, and a little baggie of these would be an awesome gift for your pals! You can make them in big batches all at once and you’ve got a whole bunch of gifts checked off your list. Boom! Magnets for everybody! xoxo
