Today I want to show you how to make some cute push pins or magnets. I'm sure you have seen some similar ones in boutiques for top dollar but the truth is they are super easy to make and come out looking great! These would be super cute packaged in a small tin box for gifts.
Here are the materials you will need:
-Push Pins- the cheap metal ones with flat heads
-Round Glass Beads that are used for fillers in vases, etc. I found mine in the floral department at Michael's but they have them at Wally Word, Michael's, Dollar Stores, etc.
-Pretty fabric scraps, paper, or magazine cut-outs (cut in small round circles about the size of glass beads)
-Glue (I used the E6000 that comes in a tube. You can use a glue gun too.)
Here is a pic of the supplies you need.
First, you need to cut out small round pieces of fabric, paper, magazine clippings, etc. They should be about the same size as the back of the glass beads but they don't have to be exact. The glass beads vary slightly in shape and size.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and get to make lots of push pins/magnets.
