If you have 5 minutes to spare, & $5.00 to spend, you can make these cute DIY pumpkin magnets for your fridge!

One of the things I really love about Fall, is that even after Halloween is over, we can still celebrate with pumpkins, corn husks, and hay bales. Thanksgiving is certainly a great excuse!

I never really thought about Holiday decor on my refrigerator, but after I saw these cute little wooden pumpkins on sale at Hobby Lobby, I knew I needed to turn them into magnets…stat. They just looked so pretty, and anything is better than flat sales pitch magnets that don’t stick.

If you only have 5 minutes to spare, and $5.00 to spend, this project is for you…I mean, who can say no to that?
