DIY Tile Magnets

Landon and I moved into our house just a couple months before Christmas in 2015.  It was our first Christmas as newlyweds and we were blessed to receive countless Christmas cards from friends and family.  I couldn’t wait to display them on our fridge!  There was just one problem – we only owned a handful of magnets.  I looked high and low and just could not find any I liked so I decided to make my own.  The great thing is that I paid only a few dollars and have enough tiles to make over 100 magnets!  I do not need that many but they would work great as gifts (for everyone you’ve ever met ?).


  • Backsplash tiles (I got this one from Home Depot)
  • E6000 glue (can find at your local craft or hardware store)
  • Magnets (the size will depend on the size and weight of your tiles)

The tiles come on a mesh backing.  All you have to do is peel each tile off and it’s ready to assemble.

Add a dab of glue to the middle of a magnet and stick the tile on.

Wait a full 24 hours to make sure the glue is dry.  After that, stick them on your fridge and put ’em to work!

The great thing about using backsplash tiles is that there are TONS of options to choose from and even if you get a 12×12 inch tile for closer to $15-20, you still will be able to make a ton of magnets for not that much.
