DIY Fridge Magnets Step #1: Prepare the Plates
Begin by cleaning your vintage plates thoroughly. Use warm soapy water to remove any dust, grime, or residue from years of use. Let them dry completely before moving on to the next step.
DIY Fridge Magnets Step #2: Attach the Magnets
Place one side of the double sided adhesive to one side of the magnet. Stick the other side of the adhesive to the back of the plate. Press firmly to fully adhere the adhesive to the plate.
DIY Fridge Magnets Step #3: Display Your Magnets
Display your vintage magnets on the front or side of your refrigerator or any magnetic surface in your kitchen. Have fun arranging them in a way that complements your kitchen’s style and color scheme!
You can find small vintage plates or butter pat dishes in thrift stores, flea markets, online on websites like Etsy, or you can find them in your own kitchen cabinet.
It’s best to use flat ceramic magnets or neodymium magnets. These magnets provide strong adhesion while maintaining a low profile on the back of the plates.
Vintage plate magnets are easy to remove without damaging the fridge’s surface. Gently slide the magnet off the surface rather than pulling it.
