DIY: Glitter and Pom-Pom Magnets

By Alison Faulkner of The Alison Show

These magnets are a quick and fun gift. They are inexpensive, easy to transport, and add just the right amount of pop to a refrigerator. Just be sure to make some for yourself, trust me, you’ll be sad if you don’t!

Lets’ get started with supplies …

Supplies Needed:
For Glitter Magnets
• ¾” ceramic craft magnets
• Glitter
• Foam paintbrush
• Tacky glue
For the Pom Pom Magnets
• ¾” ceramic craft magnets
• Felted wool balls or pom poms
• High-temp hot glue gun

Step 1: Arrange your magnets about 4” apart on a sheet of paper. Make sure to give them
space or they will try to smooch!

Step 2: Pour a small pile of glitter on the paper. With your foam paintbrush apply a
layer of Tacky glue to the surface of a magnet. (Tacky glue adheres to glitter better than
regular white glue.) Quickly dip the glue-covered surface in the glitter. Set aside to dry.

Step 3: For pop pom magnets: apply hot glue directly to the top of the magnet. Quickly
push your pop pom in place.

Step 4: Use a small tin or other magnetic surface to display your magnets for gifting. Or
put them on your fridge and display your favorite Minted cards!

    I can’t believe that I haven’t thought of this before either, not with all of those little felted balls (both purchased and self made) sitting in a jar at my work space ‘staring’ at me. lol
