Emoji Magnets

Who ISN'T a fan of emojis? *No one raises hand* I love 'em, you love 'em, we all love 'em and it's a good thing because they're EVERYWHERE! There's emoji leggings, emoji purses, emoji pillows, even emoji macarons!

DIY emoji refrigerator magnets obviously needed to happen. Luckily for me, these were SO easy to make!

Here's what you need!
- Round magnets
- Yellow spray paint
- Sharpie paint pens in various colors

Here's what you do!
- Outside or in a well-ventilated area, spray your magnets with your yellow spray paint. Allow enough dry time between each coat. 2-3 coats should do it!
- Once completely dry, use your paint pens to draw your various emoji faces on the magnets. Feel free to sketch them out on paper first, or just go for it! I just free-handed ours and they're not perfect, but the homemade look works for us!
- Hang them up on your refrigerator and admire your adorable work!

Which emoji is your favorite? I think my most used emoji is the "eeeeeek" face with the teeth. That's the technical name for it. Have a happy Monday!
