Today I’m sharing easy to make wood peg magnets! What I love most about these magnets is that even though the magnet is very strong, these magnets are easy to grasp and move around.
Wooden pegs (I had Mr. Hobby cut pegs from a wooden dowel rod)
White Spray Paint
Hot Melt Glue Gun
In the picture below, I included gold and white washi tape, but I didn’t end up using it for this project, because I decided I did not want to cover the wood.
After Mr. Hobby cut the 1/2 inch pegs for me from a wood dowel rod, I lightly sanded them to remove the rough edges.
I coated the heavy-duty magnets with white spray paint.
I painted the tips of the wood pegs with white craft paint.
I added a little pattern to the top of the wooden pegs with a metallic rose-colored craft paint. I’m a little sad that the color doesn’t look very impressive in the picture, but it really is a lovely color! Have fun with these and use any colors you want.
The pegs were attached to the magnets with a little hot glue. I finished them off by spraying them with a light coat of clear sealer.
These took minutes to put together! Best of all, I love how easy they are to move around on my fridge.
If you enjoyed this project, we’d love if you pin it! Thanks for sharing!
