DIY Magnets

This is such an easy DIY project! This one is very similar to my Easy DIY Bookmarks.  They can be so cute 🙂

You can find all of the materials at any craft store. If you want to budget a bit more, check your local Dollar Tree, Dollar Store for the glass accents. If you do this make sure you really look at the glass and make sure it isn’t scratched or broken.

 

 

Things You Will Need:
Pencil
scissors
Magnets
Diamond Glaze
Scrapbook paper
Clear glass accents

 

 

Step 1:

Place your glass accent on your choice of scrapbook paper. Using your pencil, trace around the bottom of the glass.

 

 

Step 2:

Cut out the circle your made on the scrapbook paper. Flip the glass accent over so the flat part is facing up. Add a bit of Diamond Glaze to it.

 

 

Step 3:

Press the scrapbook circle to the back. Make sure the glaze gets pushed to the edges of the glass accent.

 

 

Step 4:

Add another dot on top of the glued scrapbook paper.

 

 

Step 5:

Place the magnet on the glue dot and lightly press it into the glue. Let the magnet dry. This will take a few hours. To be safe, I would let it sit while you are at work, over night, or at school.

 

 

After they dry, you can add your magnets to the refrigerator (or wherever)!

 

 

I made these for my dish washer! I really needed these.

 

 

Happy crafting 🙂

    • I know! I need to map that one out in my head and it might be my next Make Something Mondays project. I like that one! You are a great source of inspiration! 🙂

  1. This is so cool! I actually accumulated a number of square 3×3 rubberized magnets someone used for advertising one time. I covered the face of several of them with contact paper. Had some leftover gold seals upon which I painted smiley and frowny faces…one for clean dishes and one for dirty. Since they were rubber the kids use to toss them toward the dishwasher at the appropriate time and would laugh and laugh when his or hers stuck!
