How to Make or Buy Beautiful Magnetic Fridge Photo Frames

Bought picture frame magnets

If you buy picture frame magnets you know the quality you are getting, those above are reliable, they don't fall off the refrigerator when you slam the door and it is very easy to change the photos giving you a fresh view as often as you like. You can design your fridge front how you like and vary it.

The whole back is magnetized making them stick firmly to the fridge. Although the frame plastic does not yellow over time it is unfortunate that the photos themselves will turn yellow. However this happens to any photo left out and even those in albums will age. Best to keep your photos in electronic form and just print off those you need.

How to Make Your Own Photo Frame Refrigerator Magnets

If you prefer to make your own refrigerator magnets for photos you can and it is fairly easy. All you need is some old wood, glue, some magnets and of course your photos.

Personally I think this is a really great idea and it looks really great, however on the down side you cannot change the photos as they are varnished into the frame. Still I guess you could always glue a plastic pouch instead and pop the photos into that!

The Advantages of Making Magnetic Fridge Photo Frames

The advantages of making your own photo frames for me personally is that they are unique and very personal and make much better and more thoughtful gifts than buying them. Most people like personalized made gifts. (But check as not everyone does. My sister has a friend who hates handmade gifts and thinks of them as shoddy and inferior)

I love that these are made from wood as wood is a beautiful thing to make anything out of with each piece being individual and lacquering them makes the lines stand out. Warning though you might get a bit of reflection if you use gloss rather than mat.
