Start by cutting or punching out circles that fit the glass rocks. I used a punch, but tracing and then cutting out would work just as well.Easy fall magnets at thebensonstreet.com

To make Jack-O-Lantern’s I used a Sharpie marker to draw faces on. Get creative and add your own flair. If just pumpkin magnets are desired skip this step. I made a variety of Jack-O-Lanterns and pumpkins.

Use Mod Podge to lightly paint the glass rock.

Stick the paper on the rock with the face or colored side of the paper sticking to the rock. Then add a very thin layer over the paper to help it stick.

Let the Mod Podge dry throughly.

Aren’t they just adorable. I love the mix of the faces and pumpkins. I will be using these anywhere that is magnetic. I love that they are a fun way to add fall decor in a simple way.

If you aren’t ready to get halloween decor out, just make plain pumpkins that can be used for decor from September to October. That’s the great things about pumpkins. They last the whole fall season.

Are you ready for fall? Or are you still stuck in the summer fun? I’m hoping with school starting today that I will get to be on a better schedule and that is really why I am excited for fall. I’m not sure if I’m ready for the fun in the sun to go away.

    Hi: I love the magnets! Can you tell where you get your glass rocks? I have some but they seem to have a shine to them that makes viewing the pic underneath difficult at certain angles. Yours looked completely clear. I would appreciate. Thanks so much for sharing. Def. will be making these!

      I got them at a local craft store, it was probably Joann’s or Michael’s. But you can also buy them online. I searched for clear glass stones and found some on etsy and other sites. I hope that helps.

    Adorable! Thank you for the great photos. I have a question for you, before applying the magnet, you glued on a second circle as a backing before applying the magnet, then did you apply more mod podge to the backing paper too?

    I’d love to make these with my students. Thank you again. Terre

      I just applied one circle (the back of the paper I used was black) So apply the Mod Podge to the stone. Place the paper on it. Apply another thin coat of Mod Podge over the paper. Let dry. Then add the magnet using hot glue.

      Hope that helps if not let me know! Thanks for stopping by!
