Snowman Magnets


I recently ran across a blog called Eyeballs by Day, Crafts by Night and am in love with almost everything that this girl makes. It seems that we have alot of common interest in many crafts and I think she has some wonderful ideas. So over the weekend I tried out one of her ideas which was Snoman Magnets! And here's my go at it.

First, I painted some little wooden discs I found at Michaels craft store.



Then painted on the faces by looking at hers. Let that all dry, then came back with a home-made mixture of mod podge and with glitter and painted that on. It kinda give it that snowy effect without me having to purchase the glitter mod podge. And surprisingly, it worked. Lastly, I used some E-6000 glue (from Walmart) and attached some good strong, round magnets to the back.



And here they are all finished and ready in my craft booth:


Look real close and you can see the glittery snow affect.





 



I too, will also be selling these in my craft booth, so I went with the display method she used also. That is by sticking them on a metal star. I chose a red one I painted, and edged with a eggnog yellow.





I put sticky price tags on the back of each one.
I priced them for $  .99 cents each

I absolutely loved this craft!
Oh and I bought my round magnets at Walmart in the craft section.

See ya'll next time,
