I had gotten a magnetic poetry set as a gift last Christmas and was at a quandary as to where to put it.  My refrigerator is already overrun with magnets and pictures so I had to come up with a new idea.  My first thought was to buy a sheet of metal but being the cheapskate that I am, I found a rusty cookie sheet that I was going to toss and decided to experiment.

I took a steel wool pad to clear off most of the rust and then covered it with a Rust covering textured spray paint.  I finished it off with some celestial stickers and a good coat of Mod Podge.  I drilled some holes in the sides and ran ribbon through to hold it so that I could hang it on the wall.
