Remember the announcement I made about Michael’s?!
Well, in case you missed it I blogged about how Michael’s now carries Craft Fabric. Can I get a Hallelujah?! I was so excited about this announcement and rushed on over to the local Michael’s to check out all the fabric. I was thrilled to find adorable patterns and colors that come in varying sizes including cotton, canvas, burlap, felt, faux fur, crushed velvet and tulle. I was fortunate to have had some of this fabric sent to me to craft with, but couldn’t resist buying a few more pieces to add to my collection. 😉
I wanted to think of something fun and easy and decided to make this Fabric Covered Magnetic Frame. I saw the frame in the CLEARANCE section at Michael’s and knew it would be perfect. Here is how it turned out:
I made it for my friend at Disney for thanking them for the BEST vacation ever!! Normally, I wouldn’t attach a picture of my fam as a gift but wanted to show her how just how much we loved our trip there last November. 🙂
If you’d like to make this fun and easy sign as well, here is what you’ll need:
– Sheet Metal
– Magnetc (and Cover Buttons)
1. Gather your supplies. Get your sheet metal at your local home improvement store.
2. We cut our sheet metal to be 8×10 inches using a jigsaw and a metal blade to fit our 8×10 frame. We also filed the edges so it wouldn’t be too sharp. 🙂
Cut your fabric to a little larger than your sheet metal.
3. Wrap your fabric around the sheet metal like a present and taping the sides.
4. Add your fabric covered metal to your frame and add the back.
5. I wanted to make some fun Fabric Covered buttons with some of the craft fabric too just for fun. All the directions for those are found on the packages.
6. Then I hot glued a magnet onto the back of the buttons (We bought these magnets from Michael’s.)
I kind of love how it turned out. Super simple but super cute which are the kinds of gifts I LOVE!!
What’s best is that the fabric can be changed out according to the seasons, the decor of someone’s home or for the event (if you use it while hosting).
I just love cute and inexpensive gift ideas!

Laminated burlap, a Michaels limited exclusive, can be fed through most home printers to add personalized messages and images to fabric projects.
