Do any of you travel? I have this crazy dream to someday backpack through Europe on my summer break. It would just be SO lovely… Other than in my dreams, I haven’t done that much traveling outside of our 50 states; however, my family and friends have! Because of that, I’ve wound up with some really cool foreign coins. I even refinished an old dresser from a consignment shop (found in another post) and discovered a bunch of French coins from the 90’s!
I decided to retire my childish, weakly magnetic plastic magnets and make some new ones. I felt like this would really make my fridge look much cooler.
Using basic super glue, and simple magnets purchased from Meijer (approx. $2 for a package of 8), I was able to add some classy foreign flare to my refrigerator and remind me of my dream on a daily basis! This craft is one you can complete with minimal time and effort, but it is a cool way to save those coins you’ve collected on your amazing adventures!
Seriously, just pick the side of the coin you like the most, drip a couple drops of super glue on to the coin and press a magnet down! Let it dry and, taadaa! Fridge flare! It is that simple!
I have some Irish, Polynesian French, Canadian, Euros, some from Taiwan, and a couple of other cool places!
Where have you been on your travels?
