DIY Clean/Dirty Dishwasher Magnet

For The Past 7 Years, My Husband And I Have Guessed On Weather Or Not Our Dishwasher Had Clean Or Dirty Dishes In It & Luckily We Have Only Made A Few Wrong Guesses.
So, While Thumbing Through My Favorite Site, Pinterest, I Found This Clever Idea On Etsy....

And Instead Of Purchasing It, I Created My Own...
I Purchased These Scrabble Letters From Joann's Fabric For $10. It May Seem Like A Lot, But We Don't Have A Hobby Lobby Close & It Beats Paying For Shipping If I Ordered Them Online!!

I Then Took Some Magnet Strip That I Had & Lined Them Up Along The Sticky Part Of The Strip.
I Did This For Both "Clean" & "Dirty"

Next I Trimmed Up The Sides Of Each Word.

Taking Some Super Glue I Had, I Ran A Thin Strip Along Each Side Of The Strip (just for extra hold).

Finally, I Added Two Short Magnetic Strips So That Each Word Would Be Held Together.

And....It's Done! Now We Don't Have To Guess Weather Or Not The Dishes Are Clean Or Not!
