I love Martha Stewart.

I think she is a crafting, cooking, entertaining, home decorating genius.

So, let me just tell you how thrilled I am to be sharing a post featuring

Martha Stewart Decoupage!

My box of goodies arrived in the mail,

and my wheels started spinning.

I wanted to share something that was “Martha – Worthy.”

I hope Martha likes this Burlap Magnet Board.

Because, I sure know that I like Martha Stewart’s Decoupage products 🙂

So here is how to make a burlap magnet board!

Burlap Magnet Board @ DaisyMaeBelle

Martha Stewart Crafts @ DaisyMaeBelle

Supplies:

Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Matte Decoupage

Martha Stewart Espresso Wood Stain

Martha Stewart Satin Paint – Spring Pasture

Martha Stewart Decoupage Papers – Birds

Martha Stewart Decoupage Brushes – you’re going to want these brushes…

…they put the foam brushes to shame.

All of the Martha Stewart Decoupage products are available at Michaels.

Other Supplies:

1 (12 x 24) metal sheet from the hardware store

piece of burlap about 1 inch larger than the metal sheet

2 clothespins

2 magnets

ribbon

hot glue

To prepare the metal sheet:

1. Sand the corners with coarse sandpaper to remove the sharp edges.

2. Measure 1″ from the top and 4″ from each edge and mark with a Sharpie.

3. Place scrap wood under the metal and

hammer a large nail through to create a hole.

4. Turn the metal over and hammer down the rough edge

where the nail came through.

5. Clean the metal with rubbing alcohol.

Martha told me to do that when I read the directions about decoupaging to metal 🙂

Working is small sections,

add decoupage medium to the metal and to the burlap.

Stick together as you go.

And, can I just share with you that Martha further impressed me

with these products.

First of all, this Martha Stewart Decoupage can be used on

metal, wood, glass and ceramic!

{And, it’s dishwasher safe.}

See what I mean – Martha is a crafting genius!

Another point of genius –

The large brush fits PERFECTLY into the decoupage jar?!

I didn’t even have to pour the decoupage into a bowl!

I just worked straight from the jar. 

This just further confirms my feelings of crafting genius towards her.

After the decoupage dries, wrap the extra burlap around the edges and

hot glue to the back.

Use the nail to recreate the original hole and add ribbon for the hanger.

Using the Martha Stewart Wood Stain, I painted the stain onto the wood ovals and wiped off to reveal this beautiful finish.

Then, I painted polka dots around the edges

using the craft paint.

I hot glued the magnet to the clothespin and the clothespin to the oval.

Now I have a magnet clip for my notes.

I applied a thin coat of the decoupage to the wooden oval, and another thin layer to the leaves.

I placed the leaves on the wooden oval and added 2 thin coats to the top.

Martha explains all of this perfectly in her directions.

The finish was perfect!

I can’t decide if it was the decoupage paper…

…the decoupage medium…

…the decoupage brushes…

…or a combination of the 3 that created such a perfect finish!

I made another magnet with this sweet little bird.

These clothespin magnets are perfect for reminders!

As a finishing touch to the magnet board,

I decoupaged a large bird in the corner.

Again, I added decoupage to the paper and to the burlap.

The bird adhered beautifully to the burlap!

Then, I added a final coat over the entire board.

  7. I think you solved my problem for me!

    I have been looking all over; I want a magnet board but I want it to be linen, and yet linen is always a pinable board. Now I know how have what I want!

    How much did the metal piece cost? And where do you find the decopage for metal?

    • The metal piece was less than $5 at Lowes. As for the decoupage, the Martha Stewart all purpose decoupage works on metal! It is available at Michaels. Good luck with your magnet board!
