Mod Podge Magnet Tutorial

These magnets are so cute and super simple to make!

 To Make...

I used 1 1/2" wooden circles from Michael's

and this awesome circle cutter.

Of course if you don't have a circle cutter, a good pair of scissors will work just fine.

I painted the wooden circles with black craft paint and cut out the paper circles on my favorite Amy Butler scrapbook paper.

{Amy Butler's designs are awesome!}

 I mod podged the paper onto the wooden circles and then placed a second coat of mod podge on top of the paper.  

After the paper was completely dry, I sprayed each circle with an acrylic sealer and placed a self-stick magnet on the back.

I love the way they turned out!!!  


This one is my favorite... :)

Hope you Enjoy!

  1. So cute! I always make the marble magnets, but I really like this idea. I'm going to try some!


  2. SO cute! I made some this weekend (a little different), but haven't quite finished them!

  3. I *love* Amy Butler! I have only been using her paper for my little business. {Maybe that will change one day but for now it's sticking!}

  4. I was trying to figure out who in the world was "The Tidy Nest" and when did I start following them? Then I clicked on it and realized you'd changed your blog name. Love it, and am loving all your cute ideas!

  5. 'dorable!!! what is the cost breakdown? you could totally sell these; an etsy magnet store. :)

  9. Great idea! Thanks for sharing. I have the marble magnets on my fridge now, but I love the bigger ones for that show off that gorgeous fabric!

  10. This is such a great idea! I love them!

  11. Cute Cute! I went to the store and got some wooden circles and some squares! I could only find a 1" circle cutter not a 1 1/2". Guess I'll have to do it the old fashioned way. I did get a straight edge cutter though (much needed!)

    Keep the ideas coming 'cause I can't come up with any on my own :)
