Scrabble & Button Magnets

I recently made some silver platter chalkboards for the store and then realized the platters were also magnetic- so I decided to make some magnets to display on the chalkboards. Then I remembered that I bought several vintage board games and a huge collection of vintage buttons at an estate sale awhile back that would be perfect for this project. 

I bought several packs of small rectangular and circular magnets at Hobby Lobby and just hot glued the scrabble letters and button clusters to create custom magnets. In the spirit of Christmas I spelled out festive words to display on the chalkboards.

Thanks for stopping by!
