I must admit, I am loving all the enamel pin flair that seems to be adorning everyone’s jackets and bags recently. I have seen so many cute designs out there! But, while I love them for their looks, I am not really a flair sporting kinda gal. So I decided to turn these cute enamel pins into something I would actually use, magnets! These super simple DIY enamel pin magnets are so easy to put together that before you know it, they will be helping you organize your fridge or office in super cute style!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY enamel pin magnets:
- Enamel Pins (at under $4 for a set of 4, these are quite the steal!)
- Wire Cutters
- E6000 ndustrial Strength Adhesive
- 1/2″ Craft Magnets
Begin by using the wire cutter to cut the pin part off the back of the enamel pins.
Now use your glue to glue the magnets on. If you weren’t able to cut off the pin back far enough down, you may need to sand the pin down a bit. Either that or add extra glue so that the magnet comes in contact with the glue.
Once you have glued on all the magnets, let the glue dry for a full 24 hours. Then your magnets are ready to use.
With teacher appreciation week coming up, these little magnets would make the perfect gift! I can just see a whole collection of these fun magnets up on the magnet board at school. These would even be great to use on a kids chore chart.
