Creative Magnet Ideas

Magnets are such a fun thing to make.   They make great gifts and there are so many creative ways to use them.   I thought I would focus on ideas to make some fun magnets.   Today’s “5 Ways Saturdays” topic is…

5 Ways to Create Handmade Magnets

Here is a unique idea by the Evil Mad Scientist.   Why not repurpose old candy containers and the like and stick them on your fridge?candy magnets

Here is a creation of miniature pies made out of beads, felt, glue and bottle caps by Whimsy Love.   Add a magnet on the back and you have a fun way to bling out your fridge.

I love these mini collage magnets made by Tara at SEI Lifestyle. She used small bits of paper and embellishments to create mini art canvases.

Many times you can find old obnoxious costume jewelry at yard sales or thrift stores for cheap.   That is what Rachel from One Pretty Thing did. She removed the earring post and added a magnet and she has herself some fancy fridge bling.earring brooch magnet

Kristin from Ink Blots and Polka Dots turned her 3 year old’s art into magnets.   What a sweet keepsake.

    Hi, I'm new to your blog and really loving it! I am super curious as to where you do your spraying? My honey is great with a spray can (I'm totally getting him one of those $17 sprayers!) but with all the fine mist and overspray it's hard to find a suitable location. Everything in our garage is covered with overspray. Outside isn't a great choice as we have neighbors and the wind will really carry overspray (DH's truck now has fine mist of white on it. You can't see it really, but you can FEEL it) and I don't want get spray on the neighbor's homes or vehicles.
