Why this is a perfect pumpkin craft:
When it comes to decorating for fall, pumpkin magnets are an absolute must-have! These adorable little decorations not only add a touch of seasonal charm to your home but also offer a multitude of benefits. First and foremost, pumpkin magnets are incredibly versatile. You can easily place them on any magnetic surface, such as your fridge, metal door, or even a magnetic board. This means you can switch up their placement whenever you want, allowing for endless creativity and customization.
Another reason why pumpkin magnets are a fantastic choice for fall decor is their ability to instantly create a cozy and warm atmosphere. The vibrant orange color and classic pumpkin shape evoke feelings of autumn and harvest, making your space feel inviting and festive. Whether you’re hosting a fall-themed gathering or simply want to infuse your home with seasonal spirit, these magnets are a perfect choice.
Furthermore, pumpkin magnets are a cost-effective way to decorate for fall. Unlike traditional pumpkin decorations that can be expensive and take up a lot of storage space, these magnets are compact and affordable.
Pumpkin magnets are a wonderful way to spruce up your home for fall. Their versatility, ability to create a cozy atmosphere, and cost-effectiveness make them an excellent choice for seasonal decor. So why not add a touch of pumpkin magic to your space and embrace the beauty of autumn with these delightful magnets?

Pumpkin Craft Magnets Tutorial:
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 thoroughly.
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. Add some variation with the mix of the faces and pumpkins. I will be using these anywhere that is magnetic. Loving 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.
