While I was in Oregon, my daughter and I did lots of traveling, crafting, shopping, thrifting, antiquing, eating, and laughing. We had so much fun! She has a lot of DIY projects in her home. They are all very impressive. I fell in love with these DIY refrigerator magnets using vintage broaches and pins.
Don’t you just love these magnets? They would beautify any refrigerator or magnet board.
She started off by using broken rings, vintage broaches, and pins. I really like the variety, don’t you?
Then with a simple magnet bought at the hardware store, Joann’s or Michael’s; she hot glued each broach or pin to a magnet. Yep, it is that simple!
What broaches, rings or pins do you have to beautify your refrigerator or magnet board?
I hope you will make some of your own DIY refrigerator magnets using vintage broaches and pins soon. I would love to see pictures of what you can come up with.

Such a lovely idea. Just to find some at a yard sale or thrift shop. I don’t want to use my grandma’s. It would definitely dress up the fridge ;)
Aren’t they fun, Theresa?? Thanks for your sweet comment!

Why, thanks so much Serretta! xoxoxo

What a great idea! I’m planning on buying rare earth magnets and e6000 glue soon for a magnet project. My boyfriend has some cool beer bottle caps I want to convert into magnets for the fridge.
Love this Meegan! You did an amazing job with these brooches!! Pinning:)
Heidi @ Mom's Crafty Space says
Lovely! I actually have a few vintage hair clips that I don’t use that would make some awesome magnets too. Thanks for the great idea! Pinning!

What a cute idea! These are so beautiful that they should be displayed all the time, and now they will be! Love it!
Lori @Vintage Charm Restored says
I love these!! What a pretty project!!
Such a lovely idea….
What fun magnets! They remind me of a huge box of costume jewelry I was given when my great-grandmother passed away. I loved to play dress up in it, but now I wonder if the pieces would have been better served in craft projects!
Thanks so much for the inspiration!
Caron Wade says
What a beautiful idea. Definitely having a go at this, thankyou
Thanks so much Caron. Good luck :) xoxo
I actually found some of my grandmother’s old broaches! Totally doing this! Thanks for the idea!
How fun Meg!! I bet yours will look fabulous!! I hope you will send me pictures, too :)
I found your blog via Life As A Thrifter. I just so happen to have some broken costume rings that I can use. I LOVE this idea. Now I know what to do when I hit the local antique shop.
Also, if I wanted to use the brooches or the rings as hair pins, is there a special type of hot glue that is safe to use around skin or hair? Thanks!
Thanks for visiting Terr! I think it would be fine to use any type of hot glue for hair accessories. You might want to look at other glues as well :)
Good luck and have fun.
Thanks! I’ll ask around about glue that is safe to use for hair pins and such.
I love my bling – these are right up my alley! Love all the sparkly perfection here!
I know this is an old post but I love vintage broaches. I have so many and it’s one of the things I collect. Lovely
What a great idea! Do the backs of the brooches need to be removed? How do you go about doing that?
