Stay beachy year-round with this simple fridge upgrade.
Need a fun summery project? I whipped up some DIY beach rock fridge magnets—a project I’ve been saving rocks for since my vacay last summer.

I used a mix of pink turquoise slabs, quartz, beach glass and assorted salvaged/painted rocks, some $1.99 magnets from Jo-Ann Fabric, and my favorite all-purpose clear tacky glue, Fabri-Tac.

This one is so easy, and the results are so pretty.

    Grab your magnets (in the end, I realized I should have spent a few more bucks and got stronger magnets, as these little guys didn’t hold the heavier stones—but they worked perfectly for the lighter ones).

    Let them dry for a few hours — overnight is a safe bet to be sure the rocks don’t ooze off the magnets while they’re on the fridge.
