Anyone who has been to Happiest Place on Earth knows how readily available and handy the Disney World maps are.

Frankly, I am a sucker for Disney World maps. It doesn’t matter how many times I have been there and how well I know my way around the place…I always end up with a park map…or five.

After recently coming home with multiple Epcot maps, I began to brainstorm ways to repurpose them. After all,  they are bright, colorful and free…. aka cheap souvenir.

Wondering what to do with your Disney World Map? This simple DIY will show you how to make magnets with your disney map, so you can remember your magical Disney vacation every time you are at your fridge!

I have said it before…but I am not super crafty. If it isn’t easy, it isn’t going to happen. But, I noticed the number of drawings, pictures, coupons that I post on my fridge and thought a-ha!

Magnets!

Cheap and easy to make, magnets are a great way to repurpose paper keepsakes. When they are on the fridge, you can reminisce about all of your favorite memories daily.

What You Need

If you find yourself bringing home multiple Disney Park maps, repurpose them by creating magnets so you can enjoy your Disney vacation every day.

Steps

Wondering what to do with your Disney World maps? This simple, cheap DIY craft project will show you how to create custom magnets with your Disney map, so you can remember your magical Disney vacation every day

1. Find a spot on the map that you think would make a cute magnet. I like to pick our favorite countries from Epcot.This easy DIY craft is a great way to repurpose and reuse your Disney Park maps long after your Disney vacation2. Punch out the selected piece with your circle punch

Note: You can do this without a circle punch if you want to trace a circle and cut manually. I don’t trust my cutting skills, so I splurged on the tool for perfect circles.

3. Use the modge-podge to glue your selected circle to the front of a wooden disc.

The best way is to make sure that the side you want visible is facing down, and coat the backside with a respectable layer of modge-podge.

4. Put another layer of modge-podge on the back of the disc and fold over the extra paper.

I love that this part doesn’t have to be pretty, because it’s modge-podge. And modge-podge cures many crafting woes.

If you really want, you can even add an extra scrap of paper on the back to cover the wood. But, you’ll be putting a magnet on anyways.

Let it dry for just a bit before moving on to the next step.

You may want to flip it over so that the side that won’t have the magnet is facing up. If the paper sits in modge-podge, it could end up flaking off. However, you can add some modge-podge to the front as a layer of protection.

 

5. Finally, when you are ready, use the hot-glue gun to adhere your magnet to the back.

I purchased magnets with adhesive, but I was not fully confident in the adhesive.

 I found the glue-gun to give the magnet a more secure hold. You will want a magnet that is fairly strong and heavy, as the wood does have some weight and a flimsy magnet won’t hold it onto a surface.
