Have you ever seen something for sale in a store and thought, "I wonder if I could make that?" That happened to me recently while browsing the mall one evening with my husband and parents. We were walking around a gift shop when some really cute glass fridge magnets caught my eye. I pointed them out to my mom and her ever crafty self pointed out in return that I could easily make those myself. She proceeded to share a list of things I'd need. That evening when I got home, I did a Pinterest search and happened across Sabby in Suburbia's blog where I found a quick little how-to. Last weekend I made a trip to Hobby Lobby to gather some supplies, then this afternoon when I had a little quiet time, I decided to give this DIY magnet idea a whirl... And I'm pretty happy with how my project turned out! In fact, I really love them!
Would you like to give this DIY a try? Here's what you'll need:
- Round Glass Marbles, with a flat back
- Strong magnets
- Mod Podge
- Super Glue
- Scrapbook Paper
- Scissors or a Circle Punch
Here's how-to: Using the scrapbook paper, cut (or punch) a circle that will fit the flat back side of the glass marble. Mod Podge the paper to the back of the marble and allow to dry. Dab a bit of super glue to the top center of your magnet and then add the marble, paper side to the magnet. Allow to dry and voila! DIY Glass Marble Fridge Magnets.
