Teen Room Decor: Magnet Strip

Hey Everyone!  I made this for Monkey for Christmas and thought I would share it with ya!  It was quick and easy and she really likes it!  😀  Also, for those of you turning green–> all re-purposed!  😀

I had taken apart two boards that were bound by this strip of metal.  A lovely gentleman helped me get all of the tacks out!  Anyway, I sort of somewhat flattened it out and covered it with some material I had laying around.  I used hot glue to secure the material and add on a bit of ribbon to hang it!  It’s pretty sturdy, I was honestly a bit surprised!  She uses it to put her favorite comics on right now, but I’m sure that will change!  😀

This could be made a bit sporty for a boys room as well!  I made the magnets out of some magnet rounds from some store or another!  They have to be heavier magnets than, say, advertising magnets!  They are embellished with some scrapbook tabs!  😀

Anyway, I hope you like!  Any suggestions about where to find  more around house metal items to re-purpose?  You could always flatten out cans, that would make an interesting piece of decor!
