It’s our Thursday DIY here on The Pretty Blog and we have a super fun, cool and easy DIY project for you to download and put together.
These little fridge pegs will help you to: remember the birthdays that are coming up; keep an organised shopping list; clip together inspiration for your home or wedding; have important numbers handy and set reminders for your month ahead.
Simply download our printable and follow the easy steps on how to put this fridge poetry together.

  • wooden pegs
  • paint
  • paint brush
  • double-sided tape
  • super glue
  • magnetic strips or prestik

  • Step 1

    Please print page 2-3 of the downloaded document onto thick A4 card stock. {ivory paper is recommended}
  • Step 2

    Trim each button by cutting along the outer edge.
  • Step 3

    Paint a handful of wooden pegs in the colour of your choice. Or leave them in their natural raw wood colour.
  • Step 4

    Attach a small magnet strip to the back of each peg with super glue. Or simply use a piece of prestik if your fridge is non-magnetic like this SMEG fridge.
  • Step 5

    Attach a printed and trimmed button to the top and bottom of each peg with double-sided tape.
  • Step 6

    Place on your fridge. Pin your inspiration, important telephone numbers, birthdays etc. under each peg.
