A DIY Magnetic Chalkboard

It all began with a bottle of Snapple. You know those fun fact caps they have, right? Well, I thought they would make great magnets --- so naturally I needed to make a magnetic chalk board to stick them to. :)
I began by using a duct end cap that a tin knocker would use. It was less than $3 at the home improvement store. I hammered the edges flat and drilled a couple of holes to string a ribbon hanger through.
Once I had the piece hammered smooth and holes drilled, I prepped the surface and then applied a coat of primer paint. After the primer had a chance to dry, I coated the surface with chalkboard paint.
I attached magnets to the back of Snapple drink caps...
I glued a Snapple cap to the chalkboard to hold a couple of pieces of chalk...
I strung the ribbon through and completed the project!
