I first saw this done here but apparently it was done even before that here. The only difference I made is that I super-glued the magnets to the inside of the canisters rather than hot glue them to the outside. I figured that way I would avoid having magnetic forces weaken the bond between the canister (which is not magnetic) and the magnet.
Step 1: Buy the Supplies
Step 2: Mount the Magnets
Step 2: Place a drop of super glue in the center of each tin. After you place each drop, carefully place one of the magnets on top. The glue dries VERY fast, but you might want to wait awhile before putting spices in there. Actually, this brings up a good point. I'm betting that it's ok in the long run to let the spices lay on top of the super glue. Does anyone have any comments on that?
That's it! They should look nice on your fridge!
gareauk made it!
