The New Year and Back to School time are always great times of the year to get organized. My kids go back to school in two weeks (HALLELUJAH), so we’ve been cleaning out closets, going through piles of paperwork, and getting some organizational systems in place to help make things run smoothly this school year! One thing that helps keep us organized is having lots of places to keep our important papers front and center, like cork boards and magnet boards. Because of that, I decided to make an adorable and functional pizza pan magnet board for my daughter’s bedroom!
This is a great project because it is really fast to make and the supplies used are inexpensive!

- Pizza pan (you can get them for $1 at Dollar Tree)
- Scrapbook paper
- Spray adhesive (permanent)

- Acrylic paint or chalky finish paint in the color of your choice (I used this paint)
- Small paintbrush
- Natural Rope (1/4″ thick)
- Small 3M Command Hooks
How to Make a Pizza Pan Magnet Board
To begin, flip the pizza pan so it’s upside down and paint around the outer edge. This will ensure that if your scrapbook paper circle isn’t perfectly shaped (mine definitely was not!), it will still look nice and not as much like a pizza pan!
Once the paint has dried, trace the pizza pan onto the scrapbook paper. Then cut about 1/4″ smaller than the circle you traced.
Next, spray the pizza pan and the scrapbook paper with spray adhesive, and carefully place the scrapbook paper onto the pizza pan. It will be hard, if not impossible, to move the paper once it’s made contact with the pizza pan, so be very careful!
If there is a significant amount of scrapbook paper sticking over one side or the other, you can carefully trim the excess with the scissors. Next, cut a piece of rope long enough to wrap around the pizza pan.
Glue the rope around the edge of the pizza pan and weigh it down with heavy objects, if necessary, to get it to lie in place and form a strong bond with the pizza pan.
When everything has dried, flip the pizza pan over and press two 3M Command hooks to the back of the pizza pan, upside down.
Run a ribbon through the hooks and tie a bow at the top, and then you’re ready to hang your pizza pan magnet board!
It is just that easy to upgrade a pizza pan to a stylish and functional magnet board!
Two important things on this to-do list: (1) call mom; (2) buy wine. (That’s my to-do list; not my daughter’s.)
I might have to borrow those animal heads for my own workspace! 🙂
If you enjoyed this project, would you please pin it so others can find it, too?
Now that we have a cute magnet board for my daughter’s room, let’s hope that it will help control some of the clutter she manages to keep in there!
