Circular Magnetic Boards Using $$ Store Pizza Pans

So about a year ago I decided I was going to redo my room. It went from brown and pink, to black, white, and turquoise. My room has one turquoise accent wall ( I <3 it) and the rest are white, there kind of dull and there is a lot of hole and nails in the wall from the previous owners. I'm technically done redecorating it, but there's always another accent you can add. Right?

So today I'm going to show you how to make these super cute pizza pan magnet boards. They are SO easy to make, and VERY forgiving. I seriously FAILED on the sewing, but it doesn't really matter on this project. They kind of remind me of giant cover buttons (LOL!!). What do you think? I think I'm in love with them, they turned out, way CUTER than I expected:



There are so easy and cheap! It only cost $5 for the whole project. 

Want to make your own? You just need to get a pizza pan(s) {mine are from the $ store), fabric ( each board needs 1/2 a yard of cotton fabric), and about 20"of 1/2" elastic.  Then You're going to cut your fabric into a 14x14" square. Once you've done that you're going to cut off the corners of the square, so it becomes a circle(ish) shape. It doesn't need to be perfect. Then you're going to take your elastic and sew it around the outside of your circle. Make sure to pull the elastic so it gathers. Then you just need to take the fabric (it'll kind of resemble a shower cap) and put it on the pizza pan like a fitted bad sheet. You MIGHT need two people for this step :).
