DIY Christmas gifts – glass pebble magnets

I love these easy DIY magnets. They’re so easy to make and personalize on a teeny tiny budget :)

 

DIY Glass magnets

 

I found glass pebbles at the Dollar Store, magnets and modge podge at Joann’s Craft store. Of course I needed my handy glue gun and some cute paper/magazines/or print your own things to place in the magnets.

The easiest way to cut out the circles is to have a hole punch and unfortunately my punch was too big so I cut each one out by hand. Not too difficult but more time consuming.

I attached each picture to the glass pebble with some modge podge and I also put some on the outside where the magnet would attach to later. The first time that I made these magnets, I didn’t put it on the outside and the magnets were tearing off the paper. I’m sure there’s better (more expensive) products for this but I had a bunch on hand and it work’s really well this way.

I let it dry over night and then I hot glued the magnets to the back of the pebbles! So cute!!!

To package them, I glued some small washers to pieces of paper so that the magnets would stick to them and not move around too much.

What an easy fun project, perfect for the kids to participate in! Happy DIY-ing

    We did this as a cousin exchange, so each of my kids make enough for all the cousins and put their picture in it. Now we have a magnet board with all the cute cousins looking at us. I used some clear kitchen epoxy to stick the picture to the glass rock, but modpodge seems even easier!
