DIY Magnetic Pen Holder.

I made this cute project at a mothers group (not therapy, just fun).  They were supposed to be for “love notes”, but I am the only girl in my house and I might be the only one who appreciates love notes.  I am also the only one who writes love notes…maybe I should write love notes to myself.  Great idea.

I figure if my boys can’t appreciate a good love note, then they might appreciate knowing where to find a girly looking marker or pen.  Ok, as I write this, I realize that they probably won’t appreciate that either.  But I do.  I am obsessed with markers and colored pens and I hate pencils.  I really do.  They are the worst.  Pens and markers rule! Now on to the project…

What you need:

Eclipse Mint Tins

Spray Paint (I used this awesome Chalkboard Spray Paint)

Magnents (like these)

E6000 Glue

Directions:

So easy!  Eat all of the mints in one sitting.  Or put them in a plastic bag to save for later :)  Then glue the magnets to the back.  When that dries, spray paint them whatever color you want.  Let that dry, and you have an awesome pen holder, or a love note holder (if your family likes verbal affection).

  • Maybe I should fill mine with dirt or corndogs!  My 3 sons would enjoy their mother’s craft project for sure.  Genius.  Best mom ever!  No really, can you imagine if I shoved corndogs in these.  “Kids, lunch is on the fridge.”  The uses are endless!

    I love this idea! I’m always hunting for a pen in the kitchen to jot something down before I forget it. I’m pretty sure my one and only daughter would love a mailbox for love notes, too, but our three boys would probably appreciate food more – even the four-year-old! Haha :)
