So sad August is gone, but September is here! Yay for fall! I’m in full swing with decorating for the upcoming season. I’m starting with changing my wreath and these adorable pumpkin magnets.
- Decorative paper
- Mod Podge
- Glass rocks
- Paint brush
- Wire or pipe cleaners
- Hot glue gun & glue
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.
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.
Place a small drop of hot glue on the middle of the back of the glass rock.
Place magnet to the back of the rock in the glue.
Cut a small piece of pipe cleaner or wire for the stem. Place a small drop of glue to the part of the magnet that you want to be the top.
Place the stem in the hot glue. Allow hot glue to dry before using as a magnet.
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.
What is your favorite part about fall?
