Can you believe that summer is over and fall is upon us? I’m in denial and insisting on doing crafts in bright colors. I seem to be drawn to magnets, probably because it’s so easy to make a variety and they can add a fun spark to a fridge or magnetic board. Today I’m going to share how to make some easy no sew fabric homemade magnets. They are fun to make and can be used with your favorite fabrics and even perfect for scrap fabrics!
- 1/2″ Thick Magnets (I ended up using different magnets than pictured below because of the thickness of magnets)
- Button Covers
- E-6000 Glue
First you want to take off the back of the buttons; pliers would work best here. Just gently pull it off. Next, cut your fabric in a circle but so it’s twice the size of your button. You could also cut your fabric into small squares. Now place the fabric in the white button maker tool, then place your button on that with the top side of the bottom touching the fabric. Then push the button into the fabric and into the white button maker tool.
Use your fingers or the blue part of the button maker and fold the fabric down over the button. Now take the back of the button maker and place on top of the folded fabric. Then press it in really well. You can also use the blue part here to push the back on. And there you have it, the cutest customized button!
Finally, you need to glue your heavy duty magnet on. And you’re done!
Your homemade magnets are now ready to be used and displayed!
