Steampunk Inspired Rusty Magnet Board + Magnets

This project and video tutorial are sponsored by Darice Crafts. All opinions and ideas are most definitely my own!

Darice products are sold in major craft stores and you can also find their products on

Now that you’ve watched the video, here are the links to the products I used:

Darice craft supplies to make a rusty magnet board

Rusty Tin Sheets – set of two 9 x 12 sheets

Brown Felt Pads – 20 pack

Adhesive-backed Magnets – 3/4 inch diameter; 18 pack

Steampunk jewelry findings to make Steampunk-inspired magnets

As I mentioned in the video, jewelry findings make great decorative magnets, and it’s so easy with the adhesive-backed magnets I used.

Additional supplies: brown permanent marker, twine, scissors, drill (for holes)
