I think everyone has lots of buttons in their sewing baskets. Why not use them and make a craft project out of them?
I stumbled on a button DIY project on Pinterest that could be a fantastic afternoon activity with my kids.
It only takes a few minutes of your time to make these buttons. I must say this is my kind craft and the best way to spend time with kids. Packaged nicely, I think these button magnets would make an excellent stocking stuffer.
What do you need and where to get the supplies
- Hot Glue Gun
- Pretty Buttons
Hot glue gun is a must have if you want to make crafting projects with kids. I boughm mine at aldi but you can get it anywher online. This glue gun on amazon is a great choice.
The size of the magnets used in this project varies. You should get a bit smaller ones than you button size. I also found that the flatter they are the better it looks. I didn’t have self-adhesive magnets, but they exist, and you can easily get them on amazon.
You can easily use any buttons you want just as long as they are flat.
Believe it or not, this project is as simple as gluing buttons to magnets! These colorful button magnets make an excellent and affordable last-minute holiday gift.
Here is a picture of the finished project. I have to say I am delighted with how they turned out! Kids are happy with the result and we decided to make them for grandmother as a present from kids.
