DIY: Refrigerator Magnets
I am always looking for a pen. Especially, when I’m in the living or in my kitchen. For some reason, I just can’t keep one around.
While I was out and about a few weeks ago craft shopping, I came across a pack of magnet backs and picked them. I didn’t really have an idea in mind, just knew that I would one day need them! (Alert!–craft supply hoarder here!) Today, was that day. I don’t have a particular like or dislike for magnets and I have few of them on my refrigerator from out of the country and other places. Nothing really personal. I decided to make a few magnets of different examples to show you the many options you have. All you need is just a little imagination. Of course, there are so many creative ways that you can make magnets but here are a few examples. I actually am going to make a few others that I thought of after I completed this project and post them on my Facebook page as an example. Check them other later and let me know which ones you like and tried!
Let’s get to it!
Here is what you need:
Magnets (whatever size you need for your project)
Modeling clay (I am using non-toxic, no bake)
1. Using a container of choice, remove any packaging and clean the inside. Set aside to completely dry.
2. Cut the decorative paper to fit around the container and use a strong glue to adhere it.
3. Let dry.
4. Add the magnets (2) to the back of the container.
Fancy That–Glitter Magnets
1. Use any color glitter.
2. On a sheet of paper, add a heap of glitter on one side and glue on the other.
The magnets I have already have adhesive but I used glue for firmer adhesion.
3. Place the glue side of the magnet into the glitter and roll gently around glitter until completely covered.
4. Turn the magnet upside down to the magnet side and let dry.
Yellow Ducky Magnet
1. Roll out molding clay.
2. With cookie cutter of choice, cut out the shape.
3. Let dry for 24 hours
4. Place adhesive side of magnet on back.
Try one or try them all! Enjoy!
