Weekend Flair #9 ~ Refrigerator Magnets

I have seen this project on several other blogs, as well as at the craft store. I was excited to have the chance to give it a try!

Supply List:

  • Large, Flat, Clear Marbles
  • Decorative Paper (or photos would work!)
  • Mod Podge
  • Magnets
  • Hot Glue

Place marbles over areas you would like to show through.

Trace, then cut out.

Place a thin layer of mod podge on the back of marble.

Firmly place paper on the back of marble.

Let dry completely. Place a thin layer of mod podge on the back of the marble/paper. This acts as a sealant . Let dry completely. Then, using a hot glue gun, place a small dot of glue on the back. Press magnet firmly to glue dot.



  1. I made those one year with tissue paper. I think the scrapbook paper looks better. Cool paper!

  2. The paper you chose is PERFECT for a kitchen. Love them!

  3. it seems so simple, but how you pick the right paper is a big deal in making it good or not

    yours are GREAT!

  4. I LOVE this! And it looks simple enough that even I could do it!!

  5. Hey, I have that same paper!! And I've been wondering how to make those. Thanks for the info, those are adorable!

  6. I've been wanting to make these too! What kind of magnets did you use? Were they strong enough?

  7. The magnets I used where "magspec" brand in yellow and purple packaging, and definitely strong enough! I bought a package of 50 at Michaels.

  8. i saw these on John Deere Mom's page...very cute! I will be making some soon! :)

  9. I haven't made these for years. When I did them, I stamped an image onto cardstock and then did the rest but used diamond glaze instead of modpodge. Yours turned out great and I just love that you found paper with kitcheny type words on it!
