Mason Jar Lid Pumpkin Magnets



MASON JAR LID PUMPKIN MAGNETS


 I am still gearing up for the holidays just around the bin.  And my craft booth really needs some more goodies to get shoppers in the mood.  So here are some Halloween themed refrigerator magnets that I made using some old, leftover mason jar lids.

(Click here to see the pumpkin and wreath made from the mason jar rings.)
 

Making the Mason Jar lid pumpkin magnets is a pretty simple craft but really kinda fun.

You need just the basics of crafts including:
- Mason Jar Lids (regular size and large mouth is what I used)
-Craft Paint: Black and Orange Cinnamon
-E-6000 Glue
-Round Magnets 


Just take your plain, shiny lids and give them a base coat of black

And then do a second of a orange color. I chose Cinnamon in the Apple Barrel line.
I just used a makeup sponge and kinda dob it on to give it a more worn look like so.
See how the top one looks way cuter? I love it way better than the plain orange one I tried on the bottom. On it, I just went back and dobbed on some black paint with a sponge to make it more cuter too.


Then I started painting on some pumpkin faces. Just some basic ones at first.

And then I got a little different now and then and added a "Boo" and a "Scarecrow" face.


And then it was time to glue on the magnets to the back with the E-6000 glue.

These are the 3/4" Button Magnets from Walmart that cost about $3.00 for a pack of 52.
These two together make a super strong hold!


Let the glue dry for about five or six hours because it is super strong once it gets a good drying.
And it will hold quite a few pieces of paper to your refrigerator too.


And then there you have them, they are all ready to go.



I think I am going to package these up and price them for maybe 2 for $1.00?
Do you think that price is fair enough?
 I know they will look way cuter when they get in the packaging and I try to price stuff so that I won't loose money on the packaging materials either.

I forgot to mention one thing. I am also going back and adding a touch of straw here and there and homespun in the corners. I will update soon with those pics. I was just in a bit of a hurry to share these and got ahead of myself. lol

 Hope you liked these little Pumpkin magnets made out of ole' Mason jar lids.

Halloween Magnets from Old Christmas Bulbs



I was going through the phase this weekend  of making snowmen magnets 

 
when it hit me. 
I had an idea to use some of the white and orange Christmas tree bulbs I had sitting in a jar. Left the base color alone, even though it has imperfections, I like it. Painted on a simple face with some Folk Art craft paint, added some homespun and on a few, added an orange button. 


Then lastly, I glued on a heavy crafting magnet on the back of each. Don't want these falling and breaking if holding too many papers!  And here they are:

 Which one do you like best? The ghost or the pumpkins?

Happy Crafting,
See ya'll next time,
