How Many Refrigerator Magnets Is Too Many? & DIY Fridge Flair

I have a lot of magnets on my fridge. Maybe too many (although I secretly don't think there's such a thing as too many magnets). It's the one area of my house where I express my hoarder fantasies.

My fridge: a colorful collage of magnets, doodles, and stickers.

If you love fridge flair as much as I do, you'll love this easy trick for making hip magnets.

Make your own refrigerator magnets.

You need:
  • A small magnet. I've saved a stash of magnets from the bottom of vinyl shower curtain liners.
  • An awesome pinback button/ button badge/ whatever you wanna call it. The one in the photo is made by Fishcakes. (P.S. Am I the only one who can't look at one of these things without thinking of that scene from Office Space?)

Do this:
1. Open the pin and pull out the wire, pin part.
2. Place the magnet inside the pin.
3. Draw something (how about an ICAD?) and post it on the fridge with your new fridge flair. You're a star!

How many refrigerator magnets do you think are too many? Do you prefer a totally clean fridge front or do you love expressing yourself via your appliances?

  1. I'd say that 15 pieces of fridge flair is the bare minimum, but self expression through pieces of flair is always encouraged. I'd say that 37 pieces of flair is just right :)
    p.s. - I left you a lil voice message in return. I hope it worked and you got it!

  2. Awesome! I'll look for the voice message in my inbox.
