This is my submission for the fridge magnet challenge. It is a thumbtack fridge magnet you use them to hang all sorts of things around the house why not make one to use on your fridge. This is good because if you do this you don't have to poke holes in your fridge to put tacks up.

Step 1: Tools

This is a every thing you will need to do this instructable you can use hand tools dremel tools,epoxy glue,glue guns, lighter pretty much whatever you have access too. i got these magnets out of some light up pins that broke and when choosing pins choose the cheapest ones you can find.

Step 2: Choose Cutting Tool

choose a cutting tool of your choice and whatever color tack you want.

Step 3: Cutting Point of the Tack

now cut the point off the tack. I chose the pliers because it was the fastest and cut the farthest down the point.

Step 4: Melting Out Pin

this way works very well if you have the right thumbtacks after doing this proceed to file the plastic a little because the are tiny chunks left of the plastic that will prevent the magnet from sticking flush.

Step 5: File

The end of your tack should look like this when it's done. Now you will need to file it I chose to use the dremel tool just because it was fast but use what you have a nail file will work for this but will consume some time,

Step 6: Glueing

Any kind of glue works but hot glue worked best for me. Apply a small amount to the tack and then place the magnet on and apply pressure.

Step 7: Finished Tack

There you go you have your fridge magnet tack.

Step 8: Your Fridge Magnet Tack in Action

Hope you enjoyed this instructable and i hope to post many more.

great now I need a new fridge, someone could have told i wasn't supposed to put holes in it (non tack related incident) this is one of those ideas that is really needless but lovable and if sold in shops it would catch on really well.
How did you put holes in your refrigerator?
errr drinking makes a good umbrella term...
