Cookie Sheet Magnetic Chalkboards

I love the idea of using cookie sheets to make magnet boards. I found the following on Pinterest and decided to make some of my own!

I thought that it would be fun to make mine chalk-magnet boards. I bought these cookie sheets at Walmart {3 in a pack for $4.00!!!} and spray painted them with chalkboard paint from Michaels:

Once they dried I added scrapbook paper and magnets to match the colors of my living room and kitchen. To make them, I bought embellishments from Joann's and used a glue gun to add magnets:

And....Voile!!!!

This was a very fun and simple project to make, and they look great in my kitchen!!!

  4. I love this idea too! "Pinned" of course! ;) Like Pamela said you can get them from the Dollar Tree but my store doesn't always have them in stock, BUT you can order a case of them from their website AND you don't have to pay shipping if you have them sent to your local store! How Awesome is that?!

  5. I love this! I am going to make them for my teammates to let the hang in their window at school to let students know if they need to bring their book or not to class. Quick question, did you attach the ribbon using a glue gun?
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. I love this idea and the fact it's both magnetic and chalkboard! I do have a question - how did you adhere the paper, with Mod Podge or something else??

    Thank you!!

  10. May be a silly question, but what kind of glue did you use to glue on scrapbook paper? Would mod podge work?! This is a great idea!

  11. you mentioned using hot glue with the magnets, do the magnets not stay on once the cookie sheets are sprayed with the chalkboard paint?
