Mosaic fridge magnets



I wanted to share this easy project. These were my Mother's day gifts to the Grannies and they both loved it. 


I used a small square piece of hardboard (available at my local craft shop), modge podge, glue, small mosaic tiles, magnets, paint and photographs. I used the modge podge to glue the photos onto the wood and then used it on top of the pictures to give them a protective layer. Once dry, I carefully glued the mosaic tiles around the photos. I glued some magnets on to the back of the hardboard and painted the sides to match the tile colour. All done!  A super fridge magnet. Now I just need to find the time to make some of my own :).

Hi Georgia, which craft shop do you buy from? I am looking for red mosiac tiles and can't find at the places I have been to.

I am attempting these for Mother's Day after seeing the post on Pinterest. What did you use for magnets? I bought magnetic tape and get it to stick

I used magnetic strips that I glued on. Why don't you add extra glue to your magnetic tape - a glue gun works really well. Hope that helps!
