How to Make Pretty Flower Magnets!

Pin It Buttons

Spring is in the air, and I’ve got another fun magnet project for you… Pretty Flower Magnets!

In addition to those fun Marble Magnets we made last fall… now you can add some spring cheer to any magnetic surface with these Pretty Flower Magnets!

Make some for yourself… or give some as thrifty gifts!

What You’ll Need:

  • Silk Flowers
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Strong Magnets
  • Pretty Jewels to Bedazzle the Center of the Flower! ;)

What You’ll Do…

First… you’ll want to remove the stem from your silk flower. The plastic backing of these flowers can be pretty pointy, and the plastic layers between the petals can make them stick out pretty far… so we’ll give them a nice flat surface with this little trick…

Just like you do when you make Flower Clips & Headbands… just pop off the stem, then pull out all the remaining plastic pieces {in the center, and between the layers of petals}…

Now… separate the petals, and go grab your gun!  {…your hot glue gun, that is} ;)

If your glue gun has more than one temperature setting, you’ll want to use the ‘hot’ setting on your glue gun.

Place the bottom petal face up, then glue your sturdy magnet to the top of it, just like this…

Now… add some hot glue to the top of the magnet, and place the next petal on top!  The magnet will now be sandwiched between the two petals, just like this…

Now glue on the remaining petals on top {one at a time… with a small circle of hot glue near the center}, until you’ve got them all glued on like this…

It’s time for the best part ~ some bedazzling!  Go grab your pretty jewel, and glue it onto the center of the flower…

    Does anyone know where to find another kodak easyshare coupon to combine with the target one?

  2. This is something that I will try to make for my mother so that she can hang it on her refrigirator

    I’m curious why you don’t just leave the leaf part on the back and glue the magnet to that instead of taking it all apart and sandwiching the magnet between the layers.

      Hi Denise ~ the plastic leaf backing on this particular flower was very pointy, so it would not have worked well to glue the magnet onto the back. By sandwiching it between the layers, it has a nice flat surface on the back now. Also, by removing the plastic pieces between the petals it will keep the flower from sticking out too far. If you have a flatter flower, you could definitely try that, though! ;)

    I might borrow this idea for a Mother’s Day gift for our children’s Sunday School class at church! I might try putting a magnet on a clothes pin & putting the flower on the clothes pin to make a clip for any magnetic surface. The ideas are flowing! Thanks!!!!

  8. Krissy says:

    I did this as a craft for my daughters 8th birthday party. The girls loved doing it and it was cheap to do. 9 girls did five flowers each for under 10 bucks. Can’t beat that!
