I have a house Made it, and a school made it this week.
I am home visiting my parents and in laws, and I have been so excited to be able to craft a bit.
First, I am SO tired of breaking and busting clothes pins! Is anyone else having this problem. On a regular, I am having kids bring them to me all busted up - can you say FRUSTRATING?!
A while back, I did this post about making magnetic letters, and decided I wanted to do the same but redo it just a bit better.
So, I have been reading posts about using numbers and making them magnetic - that is just genius! Read about the idea for how to make them without using the marbles/stones here. This is Mrs. Heeren's Happenings! She has a ton of cute ideas! So I set off to find her clear discs - I found them on her amazon listing - don't even try the craft stores, because I went to them all and no one had them.
I won't post the whole tutorial because you can find that above easily.
So anyway here is what you need to complete the project:
1 inch clear glass tiles - this is where it was useful to just look them up on Amazon!
Magnetic Buttons w/foam adhesive - Found mine at Pat Catans
Spray Acrylic Sealer
circle designs (1 inch)
1 inch craft punch (this was not suggested on the original post), but I HIGHLY suggest using it. I had to make 60 of these bad boys and my cutting skills are like a kindergarteners! No lie, just keeping it real!
I used powerpoint rather than scrapbook paper to make mine because I wanted them to match my classroom colors, and I think it would have taken longer to find the paper than to make my own.
Once you have all your numbers made here are your instructions:
1. Print off the numbers- you can do it on regular paper or on card stock. I chose to use paper because I think I am going to laminate mine. I am undecided here.
2. Lightly spray with acrylic sealer. Allow to dry for at least 15 minutes and then add one more light coat. If you don't it gets all goopy and makes a mess.
3. Once the sealer is completely dry, cut out the circles.
4. Put a THIN, even layer of Mod Podge on the tile and press the paper onto it. it needs to dry all the way or it won't work.
5. Put the adhesive magnet on the back of each. If you do not have the adhesive ones, you can use non adhesive ones, but you will need to use the E6000 glue because my old ones popped off with any other glue.
Here is the number sheet that I used to make them. Grab them for free in my TPT Store!
Here are a couple Monday Made It Wreaths from my weekend.
|Wrap your wreath in ribbon - but leave the plastic on the wreath or you will have hay everywhere.|
|Take all three tubes and put the pin through each one.|
|Pin it in place. It doesn't matter where you pin it because it just hangs over anyway.|
|This is what it looks like after about fifteen minutes. Looks like snakes - right?!|
|I liked the boa and thought it make it look fancy! Then I took the glitter letters and literally pinned the back of it to the backside of the wreath.|
|Then I pinned with the upins on the back the rest of the name. I didn't go crazy with the pins since outside weather isn't going to be blowing this bad boy around.|
|Tada! Isn't she cute? My little 5 year old friend is going to flip when she sees this for her birthday.|
|If I had coupons this would have only cost about $11 to make but because it was all ful price it was about $20. Still worth it to see the smile on her face! :)|
Here are the other two wreaths that I created this week!
One for my classroom
|I still didn't attach the chalkboard and it wasn't hung so you can't see how cute and puffy it is, but I am very happy with it!|
The last one - which is my personal favorite was for a friend for her housewarming!
So STINKING CUTE!
I am linking up with Tara for her Monday Made It!
Please leave some love and don't forget to pick up your 1 inch numbers on TPT
Thanks for stopping by!!! :)
