Pretty Poinsettia Magnets are the perfect way to spruce up your fridge, file cabinet, or give someone as a festive little Christmas gift!



In addition to those fun Marble Magnets and Spring Flower Magnets we made… now you can add some holiday cheer to any magnetic surface with these Pretty Poinsettia Magnets!

What You’ll Need:

  • Artificial Poinsettia Flowers  {check your local craft store or even Dollar Tree!}
  • 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 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.  If you’ve still got a little plastic point on the back of your bottom petal, simply snip it off carefully with a scissors.

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.  {use the same process that we did on the Spring Flower Magnets!}

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.

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

How easy was that?!? Now it’s your turn to go make some Pretty Poinsettia Magnets!
