Craft Quickies: Magnet board from old art canvas



If you are anything like me you don't have a lot of time for crafting. Between kids, my busy Etsy shop and keeping up with everything else, I don't get a lot of time to craft. So, when I saw The Country Chic Cottage's call for 15 minute projects I answered her call!
 
I made this magnet board all with things I've had lying around. Not only fast but also uses up some stash!


 
Here's what you'll need:
canvas
fabric
hot glue
magnets (at least 2)
 
 
 I had an old art canvas laying around and magnets I made with my rosettes. I have tons and tons of fabric. 
 
First step is to cover the canvas with the fabric.
 
 Lay the canvas on top of the fabric. Trim to about three inches all the way around.
Cut out the corners.
 
 Fold fabric up and glue down all the way around.
 
 Next is displaying your artwork.
 
 I used four magnets. One in front and one in back to hold on my daughter's masterpieces! We learned about Jackson Pollock (left) and Henri Matisse (right).
Now they are displayed on our wall and can be changed. 
 
 
I love the rosette magnets and have been hoping to get some in the shop but haven't had a chance too. Someday soon...

I hope you find 15 minutes to craft something today! I will be sharing a couple other crafts this week here that only took me 15 minutes so I hope you'll find some inspiration.

Inspire Me Monday: For the Kids




My blogger looks different to me and apparently when I typed in the title and got distracted and moved on a didn't get back to the post until several hours later, it published. Sorry about that. I'm here. Feeling much better than last week. Thanks for the wonderful comments and support! Love my readers!
Here are a few great projects from last week and all are crafts for kids.
 Super cute matching game from Small Fine Print.

I love Quiet Books and wish I had the time in patience to make one. They are wonderful and this one from Naptime Creations is no exception.

What a great idea from Crafty Journal. My kiddos would love this Easter Egg Busy Bag.
 
Thanks so much for linking!

Etsy Seller Round Up #1

Take a look at these great shops!

Meg from Made By Meg says...I work two part-time jobs, so I'm pretty busy already, but I love to knit and sew and create just about anything so I make an effort to find time to craft something every day.
She creates...Right now I'm knitting and making coasters for my Etsy shop, but I do plan on getting into more sewing projects once the weather gets warmer. I also cross stitch, but that's mainly for myself.

The Dorothy Days says...The Dorothy Days is a vintage and handmade shop based in England. I sell beautiful vintage English teacups, handmade gift tags, vintage jewellery, handmade made earrings and much more. I believe that buying vintage is recycling at its best with the added bonus of owning beautiful items from days gone by. Granny Dorothy's era was one etiquette, elegance and refinement and here is your chance to own and enjoy objects from such a time. Please take a little look around my shop and I hope that you shall like what you find.
I sell beautiful vintage teacups trios and sets from England. They are all in great condition and I specialise in the 50's era. I also sell handmade gift tags including large heart gift tags and tea cup tags. I recently have been creating handmade earrings in vintage styles. There are some wonderful designs including pin up girls, birds and floral designs.

Meredith from Wild Woman Beads says..."
I'm a happy designer/creator of elegant, inspirational and whimsical artisan jewelry. I'm semi-retired from the mental health field, enjoying pleasant days working to make something beautiful for someone every day. I'm the mom to adult children, a nana, a dog lover, gardener, photographer and pursue many other artistic genres. My goal is to support women of all ages to feel beautiful every day. 
She creates...
Unique, colorful, artisan necklaces, bracelets and earrings using lampwork beads, fiber beads, some natural stones, sterling silver and gold-filled or vermeil materials.
