Easy DIY Magnets
I will be the first one to admit that I am not a crafty person. Working in a preschool classroom for almost 20 years, I had a lot of opportunity to do “crafts.” But any good preschool teacher will tell you that with preschoolers it’s more about the process not the product. So, that’s been my focal point for many years. My products aren’t always the greatest, but I can have fun getting it done.
These DIY Magnets are definitely an easy project. I signed up for the free trial of GraphicStock making the projects easier than I thought it would be. GraphicStock is filled with images that can help you create any craft this holiday season. From holiday gift tags to labels for your holiday sweets, the possibilities are endless! Create a design online and print it out!
This DIY magnet project was made from recycled promo magnets. Do you see a theme here? I like free things ! GraphicStock has a lot of free photos and DIY magnets are a low cost holiday idea that can be made for almost free.
The holidays are a great time to whip up a lot of these DIY magnets. Add a magnet to a gift card, thank you note, gift basket or Christmas card. DIY magnets add a personal token of appreciation to your holiday gifting. I know someone who is crazy about peacocks, so I am making her a complete set of assorted size magnets. I am sure she will be thrilled.

An assortment of photos, Vectors or Illustrations printed from GraphicStock downloads.
Sign up for a FREE 7 day trial of GraphicStock. This will give you access to over 250,000 photos, vector or illustrations to choose from. Pick a few of your favorites you’d like to see on a magnet.
Print out your photos. A business card size magnet is approx. 400 x 200 pixels. I printed out some full sheets of patterns and a few 4 x 6 photos of textures, so I had a large variety to choose from.
Gather your promo magnets. You can also buy magnet sheets for your printer or use magnetic tape.
Trim your photos down to the size you need.
Use glue stick to cover the back of the photo. Be sure to spread glue to all of the edges and corners.
Attach the photo to the magnet.
Push down all of the edges and let dry completely. (approx. 20 mins.)
Cover each magnet with a thin layer of Modge Podge. (I bet if you don’t have Modge Podge you could seal with packaging tape or clear contact paper)
Let dry completely.

We use our refrigerator as the family hub. Anything of any importance hangs there on the front or side. It’s really a cluttered mess. Hopefully, these DIY magnets will inspire me to keep it nice and pretty. If I can make DIY magnets I know anyone can do it!
