How to Make Pizza Pan Magnet Boards
Time needed: 30 minutes.
Transform dollar store pizza pans into sports ball magnet boards perfect for a sports lover’s room or a game room!
- Spray Paint Pizza Pans
Using Spray Paint, give pizza pans about 2 good coats of spray paint in your choice of ball colors. Let dry.
- Open Cut Files in Design Space
You may use the files that I created for the baseball, soccer ball and basketball here: https://design.cricut.com/landing/project-detail/5eb01f6a5c394312843bda31
You will want to size them for your pizza pan. Mine are sized to fit the inner section of a 13-inch pizza pan.
- Click Make It
Click the MAKE IT button in the upper right of Design Space and continue on through the mat screen. Connect your machine and select your material.
- Cut Adhesive Vinyl
Load your mat using the flashing arrow button and then click the flashing C button to begin cutting your adhesive vinyl. Remove from machine when finished.
- Weed Vinyl
Using a weeding hook, remove the excess vinyl leaving only your designs on the carrier sheet.
- Transfer Design
Apply transfer tape to your adhesive vinyl and smooth with a scraper tool. I recommend cutting away a small corner of the carrier sheet so you can line the design up easier on the pizza pan. Then slowly remove the rest of the carrier sheet while smoothing the vinyl to the pan.
Continue removing the carrier sheet and smooth the adhesive vinyl onto the pizza pan until complete. Remove the transfer tape and use the scraper tool to remove any air bubbles in the vinyl. Repeat for any other sports ball magnet boards you would like to make!
Next, u used some command strips to adhere them to the wall! Add some fun magnets and you are now set with a fun sports-themed message and art station!
These fun Pizza Pan Magnet boards don’t have to be sports-related either! I made this Magnetic Advent Calendar from one and you could spray the colors of your room and add any vinyl embellishments you’d like! Or a name or a MONOGRAM!
