It took me a while to realize that I had a problem. My fridge was ugly. It was a clutter point in my kitchen, and a total eyesore. That’s when I started upcycling magnets in various ways. 

 

I decided to share with you this list of ways that I and other bloggers have upcycled promotional magnets. Some of these actually use these freebies, and some are really made from magnet sheets – but the two are definitely interchangeable. I did avoid including crafts that use magnet strip, or other magnets, as promotional magnets are usually rather weak. 

 

If you DON’T have promotional magnets, but want to do something fun from the list, you can easily get magnetic sheets – a must-have craft supply! But you can also check a local Craigslist or Buy/Sell/Trade group.
