Remember back in November when I did the DIY Elephant Key Hook tutorial, and I promised that in the future I would share what I did with the other halves of my elephants? Well, the future is now! I decided to turn these little elephant butts into magnets for my fridge, and it only took me 2 minutes to do it (since I already had them cut and spray painted from the first half of the project).
You will need: toy elephants // gold spray paint // round magnets (i found these at Staples) // gorilla glue
If you're starting this project from scratch, go back to the first half of my tutorial for cutting and spray painting instructions. Once the back half of your elephant is cut, spray painted, and dry, apply gorilla glue to your round magnet and press your elephant piece onto it. Hold it tightly in place for 30 seconds until the glue is set. I let my magnets sit for another hour before using them, just in case.
Once they're ready, just stick the magnets to your fridge (or other magnetic surface) and now it will look like you have a stampede of elephants trying to get into your refrigerator!
As a bonus, the little tails are perfect for hanging light things like wine glass charms or bottle openers. No ifs, ands, or elephant butts about it, these magnets make for an adorable accessory for your refrigerator!
