DIY Glass Magnets



I’m kicking off another short series here on Five Little Homesteaders.  (The other series being Thanksgiving with a Twist.)  

I love to craft and I love to give people gifts.  So this year I thought I might put those two interests together and make some Christmas gifts for friends and family.  Want to join me?

For the next few weeks I’ll be posting DIYs for simple, relatively cheap, gifts that you can make at home.  Today’s post is a DIY for homemade, glass magnets.




Step One:  Gather supplies.

  • Mod Podge – http://amzn.to/1bjDqVE
  • 5/8 in Punch – http://amzn.to/1dfmCC2
  • Glass Marbles – http://amzn.to/1bmgSXE
  • Magnets – http://amzn.to/1cN5ck3  (You can get most of these supplies at a local craft store but I HIGHLY recommend buying these – http://amzn.to/1cN5ck3 specific magnets.  They work amazingly well.) 
  • Scrapbook Paper – http://amzn.to/1cN5kA0 (or old magazines)
  • Paint Brush 
  • Hot glue gun – http://amzn.to/1bjDVz2  

Step Two:  Cut circles from scrapbook paper and/or magazines.




Step Three: Glue circles to glass marbles.  


Step Four:  Let dry and press down edges if they start to curl. 




Step Five: Glue magnets to the back of marbles.

Enjoy!  Use them on your fridge or give them away as gifts.

If you give this craft a try, let me know!
