Step by Step
1º.- For this project we have used plywood. Most crafters usually have some of this in their crafting ‘pantry’ as it’s such a versatile material. We used a jigsaw to cut it to the shape we desired
2º.- Like almost all our spray paints, our magnetic spray dries very fast. You’ll notice the magnetic effect will increase with each additional layer of paint. We applied 3 coats, allowing five minutes to dry between coats. So the total painting time was just 15 minutes!
3º.- Now get to create the rope hanger. We cut three strips and have knotted at one end:
4º.- We braided the three parts of the string
5º.- …and tied in a knot at the other end to create our hanger
6º.- The next step is to attach our rope on wood:
7º.- To do this , we used a staple gun, but you can also do it with glue.
8º.- Et voilà! Now you can hang the board wherever you like and use it to display magnets.
