Decorative Magnets

This week we wanted to explore the countless possibilities with decorative magnets, as part of our weekly creative project. At Crafted Spaces™ we came up with some ideas, and wanted to share with you an instructional video that will guide you through the creation of your own decorative magnets.

Here are some of the materials you will need, along with a pencil and a pair of scissors. We used a 1.2 cm craft magnet for our project.

Glass stones paired with a decorative image makes for a great combination. A hangtag courtesy of Verona Collections and a piece of note pad paper is shown above.

Small decorative metal frames and a piece from a metal rose clasp are also great pieces that can be used. These metal frames were purchased at Michaels.

If you will like to do something with a more fun and playful theme try old pieces of toys or common everyday items that represent something you like. An old lego astronaut and a bottle cap is shown above.

These ribbon flowers are sweet and dainty for a very girly look.

Follow this video for a step-by-step instruction on how to make your own decorative magnet. Enjoy!
