Great Household Uses For Contact Paper DIY

I never really thought of using contact paper for anything other than lining drawers and cabinets.  One of the uses of contact paper takes it a step further and it’s my favorite idea:  refrigerator shelf lining.  I love it.  Thanks to Barn Tree Place for all the great and useful ideas.

So many options and only $1!!


One day I was making refrigerator magnets and wanted to use a cute printed paper. As I was looking through my supplies, I noticed rolls of contact paper. Prefect! This will look so cute! So, I made magnets from clothes pins and decorated with contact paper and a tiny bow.

At the Dollar Store, you can purchase a bag of approximately 30-50 clothespins for …. $1.00. You should check with your local Dollar Store for the magnets too, as we have seen them at our local store.

Simply cut your contact paper to the size of the clothespin. Remove the backing from the contact paper and adhere to the clothes pin. Brush on or spray on Mod Podge to create a good seal. Embellish and glue the magnet on to the back side.
