New Wives Club #23: turn colourful masking tape into fridge magnets with a little bit of crafting magic


DIY masking tape magnets

Hi everyone, I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!  It’s been a while since I posted a New Wives Club feature, I’m really sorry about that but I do try to find ideas to share that I really love rather than any old crafting project – and as such, I don’t always find enough to do one a week at the moment.

Colourful masking tape (also know as washi tape) – don’t you just love it?  What a wonderful invention, taking some that’s practical and mainly used by boys for DIY and transforming it into something so pretty.  I recently bought myself a pack which contained a couple of different block colours, but there are so many designs out there with all kinds of patterns, spots, florals and so on that I would like to get a few more.

I must admit though, they are one of those things I find myself collecting and then wondering what I’m going to do with them.  Well here’s one thing you could do with those lovely rolls of masking tape – turn them into magnets!  My fridge is in desperate needs of being covered with some photos but I don’t have any magnets that I like…perhaps this is the solution?

Materials needed to make masking tape magnets

There’s a great tutorial on how to make these DIY masking tape magnets, it is in French and I’m not sure how good the Google translate is, but hopefully from the pictures and a general idea it should be easy enough to make your own version.  It seems to be stick strips of masking tape onto sheets of magnet, and use a craft knife to cut them out to make your magnets.  Not too difficult once you have all the materials.

If you’re looking for pretty masking/washi tape I can recommend Papermash for an excellent selection, which is where I bought mine from.

Don’t forget, there’s lots of lovely DIY ideas that have been features in the New Wives Club so do have a look and see if there’s any other you fancy having a go at.
