Pinterest Wins: The Simpliest DIY Ever - Rustic Bow Magnets


Hello February!! I have officially dubbed February as #GETSHITDONE Month. A poster from one of my favorite bloggers, Monica over at The Elgin Avenue, shared a photo of a poster which really hit home for me. The poster read: GET SHIT DONE. I think this is a good mantra for the new month! There has been too many things I've put off for literally no reason except laziness and pure procrastination. February seems like a good month to push forward.

I've been organizing my kitchen cabinets, my craft drawers, my photo boxes not full of photos but junk, shredding old bills, trying to use up old candles and contemplating the next big thing. I've searched Pinterest for some much needed inspiration and stumbled upon a few DIY's for magnets and I kept coming back to similar projects. Basically, you can pretty much stick anything to a small magnet and super glue the hell out of it to make it stick. Let it dry and Viola, you have brand new magnets as personalized as you want!

These lil handy dandy Pins has helped me out immensely! Ever since Craig got me a polaroid camera I've been a little lost what to do with the polaroid pictures. I don't want to just throw them in another photo box to create more clutter. Therefore a set of new magnets, made by yours truly is just the Pinterest Win I needed! 

I often feel like people discuss their Pins but don't let us know what pins they've actually done in real life! This might become a new series for Toots + Dill! Let's see how many Pins I can successfully do! =)
