You know how this DIY-Easter-magnet-board, the times – change the year; use it throughout the year. To do it’s easy!
I’m a big fan of DIY Easter decor! But guess what, I’m an even bigger fan . . . Easter decor that can be re-used throughout the year ’round. I like to make, it is a requirement of my projects, if at all possible.
I know that you probably feel the same – because if you’ve spent time and effort on a craft idea that you want to use it for longer than two weeks.
This DIY-Easter-magnet-board is a project that fits the bill. You’ll make it and decorate it for Easter, according to my instructions, with your handy dandy Xyron Creative Station, and a few other supplies.
It’s very easy to do, and you’ll be able to change it for EVERY holiday. I love my magnetic board, and am going to keep it for the whole year. Let me show you how it’s done!
