Can anyone suggest a website or any ideas for a tabletop magnet display that isn’t overly expensive? Right now I’m using a magnetic wipey board but it doesn’t look very nice.
Read this on Martha Stewart’s site once, thought it was clever.
Usea pre-stretched artist’s canvas. Paint it in any color you wish, when dry turn it over and coat a piece of cut to fit sheet metal with spray adhesive, attaching it to the backside of the canvas. Place a same size foam board on top and attach with mirror clips. You can glue ribbon around the edge for a finished look.
I was planning on giving it try later this summer for the upcoming Holiday craft fairs.
I used an old baking sheet. Just take a magnet with you and be sure your getting one that will work. You can cover the sheet with tack paper or paint it. I made my own easel on the back to make it stand up. You can also use those big square hot plates. I have not seen them in the stores, but maybe you can find them in a 2nd hand store?
Let us know what you end up doing.
If you are not inclined to DIY, I recommend Etsy (Etsy.com). There are many handmade magnet boards (some with matching magnets) available there, and they are so much better than what’s available commercially in design-wise, quality-wise and craftsmanship-wise.
Prices range from bottom low to sky high.
Styles range through girly girly, minimalist, functional, industrial and anything in between.
Finishes range through bare, painted over, fabric covered, and decal covered, etc.
If you don’t find what you dream of, you can even commission someone to make your dream magnet board.
