DIY ‘Bling’ Magnets

DIY Bling Magnets

There is nothing prettier than glitter! And I am a HUGE fan of ‘blinging up’ anything! We love magnets over at Paging Fun Mums and after my sister in law sent me this idea (via Pinterest) so I thought we would give it a try!

They are inexpensive & easy to make , would make a wonderful gift for any occasion & they look very sweet on the fridge holding up photos & the kids art work!

What you will need:

DIY Bling Magnets

Glass, flat backed marbles/stones (found at most $2 shops near the marbles)

Mod Podge

Glitter

Magnets

Paint brush

Glue Gun

I set up a little crafting area for the kids to get creative then put all of the different glitters into a craft container.

The first step is to paint the flat back side of your marble with a thin layer of Mod Podge.

Then dip the painted side into the glitter so it sticks!

Let them dry (about 2 hours), then glue gun on the magnet to the underside (the side in which the glitter is on – so the reflection of the glitter is showing through to the front : ) Voila! So easy!

You could use these as mini paper weights, use them in a pendant, brooch or ring, the options are only limited by your imagination!

    1. Thank you Leslie, kids certainly do love glitter….as do their Mummy’s : ). You certainly could use Elmers glue. I’ve actually never used it before myself, but I know it’s just as good, if not better than hot glue. Hope this helps! Jenni x

  1. Hi there these are a great idea!! I was wondering where you bought the little flat backed marbles from?

    1. Hi Emma, I bought them from ‘Bargain Box’ which is a $2 shop near me. I’ve also seen them at Spotlight. I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to find them at your local $2 shop (they will be near the bags of marbles). Hope this helps ☺ Jenni x

      1. Thank you Jenni! Will pop in to Spotlight and have a look! My cheeky monkey will love this activity! I think they would make a cute little gift!!

      2. No problem at all! I still have mine all over the fridge! They really are pretty!
        Let us know how you go…maybe send us a photo? I’m sure our likers would love to see how another Fun Mum went

    1. Hi Teresa, Mod Podge is a highly versatile adhesive that can be used for any number of crafts & it dries clear. You can get it from any craft store : ) Jenni x

  2. Love this idea! Was thinking of using the smaller glass marbles I have on hand & putting them in different colored bottle tops with the magnet attached to it. ;-).

  3. I am looking around for ideas for presents the pre-schoolers at work could make for mother’s day. I think these would be great.

  4. I just wanted to say “Thank You” for all of the wonderful ideas. I always want to do fun things with my girls (11 & 3) but I just don’t have much creativity myself. LOL I will absolutely be doing some of these great activities! I loved the magnets and the “Frozen” silly putty! Best wishes from the States! 🙂
