How To Create Custom DIY Fridge Magnets (6 Easy Steps)

Have you ever wanted to a specific photo or piece of art to be turned into a refrigerator magnet, but didn’t have the resources or know-how? 

Well you’re in luck! Today it is easier than ever to create your own DIY fridge magnets following the steps below:

Step 1: Design Your Magnets

The first step in creating custom fridge magnets is to design your magnets.

You can use any design software or even hand-draw your designs on paper.

Think about what you want your magnets to represent and choose a theme or style that reflects your personality or the purpose of the magnets.

You can create magnets with quotes, illustrations, photographs, or any other design that you like.

Alternatively you can use photos to stick on top of the magnetic adhesive sheets

Step 2: Print or Trace Your Designs

Once you have finalized your designs, you can either print them or place them directly onto magnet sheets, or trace them onto the sheets using a pencil or pen.

If you choose to print, make sure to adjust the size of your designs to fit the magnet sheets.

Step 3: Cut Out Your Magnets

Using scissors or a craft knife, carefully cut out your designs from the magnet sheets.

Take your time and be precise to ensure clean edges and a professional-looking finish.

Step 4: Decorate Your Magnets

Now it’s time to add some color and personality to your magnets.

Use markers, colored pencils, or paint to decorate your designs.

In the example for this blog, we used printed photos as an example- but feel free to get creative and experiment with different colors and techniques to make your magnets stand out.


Step 5: Protect Your Magnets (Optional)

If you want to protect your magnets from wear and tear, you can apply a clear adhesive laminate or clear nail polish over the designs.

We have self-adhesive laminating sheets for stickers & artwork available on our store page.

This will give them a glossy finish and make them more durable.

Step 6: Display Your Custom Magnets

Once your magnets are ready, it’s time to display them!

You can arrange them on your fridge, magnetic board, or any other magnetic surface.

Get creative with the placement and create a unique arrangement that showcases your custom magnets.


Creating custom fridge magnets is a fun and easy DIY project that allows you to express your creativity and personalize your space.

With just a few materials and some imagination, you can design and create unique magnets that reflect your style and personality.

Whether you want to make custom magnets for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for someone else, this step-by-step guide will help you bring your designs to life.
