My refrigerator was starting to look a little cluttered with photos, art work, and notes. I love to display all these things from my family and friends....but....it was just gettin' too messy! I have seen the idea of refrigerator photo frames on Pinterest (I'm sure you have too!) and wanted to give it a shot!
I purchased black 4x6 and 5x7 photo frames for the Dollar Tree store. The cheap frames are actually the best since they are light in weight. I then ripped off the piece on the back that stands the frame up...it came off easily! If you want a different color frame you can just spray paint them whatever color you like.
I purchased magnet strips. You can also purchase magnet circles to glue on the back (the strips were cheaper!). The magnet strips were 1 inch in width. I cut pieces in half to 1/2 inch. I then super glued a strip to all 4 sides of the back of the frame. Simple!
I inserted a piece of burlap in one of the 4x6 frames to use as a little message board. You can write on the glass with a dry erase marker.
I purchased magnet metal clips to hang art work, cards, or notes on the bottom part of the refrigerator. I didn't want to put the frames down too low...my 18 month old would have fun ripping them off the refrige! Anything extra I wanted to hang on the refrigerator I put on the side.
I guess there is an advantage of having an older white, non stainless steel, refrigerator!
Total cost was $10!
