DIY // Glitter Magnets

Glitter magnets are about the cutest and easiest little DIY around.

Inspiration boards are a great way to organize and creatively display your thoughts and inspirations. My inspiration boards are almost always in digital form but it's nice to have an excuse (ahem, glitter magnets) to break out of the ordinary and do a real life inspiration board. Let's get started.


Materials
circular magnets
glitter
craft glue
gold paint or spray paint
gloss clear coat enamel or spray


Directions
-First, pour yourself a glass of wine. This evening, I cha-cha-choose Decoy Zinfandel 
-Spray or paint magnets to a golden hue, taking care to get the sides of the magnets
-Spread a thin layer of glue to the entire top surface of the magnet
-Sprinkle glitter on magnets


-Shake off excess glitter, let dry
-Spray with clear coat enamel to seal and prevent glitter from coming off

  18. These are so simple, but so darn cute! I think adding glitter to anything only makes it better. Also, your first step is essential for excellent crafting - pour a large glass of wine, hehe
