DIY Magnets are so easy to make and coordinate with your home decor. A great craft for kids and crafters of any skill level.
This post has been in the works for year. Seriously. DIY Magnets may not seem like a huge deal but we’ve had plenty of requests.
One of our top posts is a chore chart from Jamie. Maybe you’ve seen it before.
We’ve had so many ask about the magnets and how to make them or where to buy them. Well, I’m here to help.
But if you want to see how to make DIY Magnets, here’s a list of what you’ll need:
- Clear Marble Pebbles
- 1 inch circle paper punch
- Ceramic Industrial Magnets (must be strong to hold up the pebbles)
- Glue (I used Gorilla Glue because it drys fast and has an amazing hold. I’ve used E6000 before and that takes longer to dry but works well.)
- Cute Scrapbook paper
To begin, you will need to start punching circles out of the scrapbook paper with the circle punch.
Once you have all your circles punched, you will add a little bit of the glue to the back/flat side of the glass marble.
Just a light layer of glue. Press the paper onto the flat side of the glass marble and move the paper circle around to make sure that glue is all over the paper.
You can press out any air bubbles by looking at the front as you get the paper circle in the center of the marble.
Once the glue has dried and the paper is stuck to the glass marble, you will want to put a little bit of glue on the paper to adhere the magnet.
Once again, move the magnet around gently to make sure that it has glue on it. Let dry magnet side up.
And there you have it. You are ready to use these on the chore charts or for anything else you need.
These also make a great gift for friends. Just make them match their decor.
