DIY Bead Magnets

DIY bead magnets! Such a great way to re-purpose old or broken jewelry!
 Today I had a great little idea while looking at one of my favorite bracelets that had recently broken...


I could make it into some magnets!
I immediately ran to the craft store and found some little magnets, and after a few minutes at home with a glue gun, these little fellas were created.












Here are my DIY bead magnets.

My fridge has never looked so sassy.
She keeps flipping her hair around like she thinks she is somebody.

These little magnets were so easy and inexpensive to make, and the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to how you make them.

I went to the craft store and got some small round magnets,  colorful rhinestones, and small mirrors.

Then I grabbed the bracelet that broke awhile back and took all of the beads off of it. 
(Let's have a moment of silence and mourn the loss of my favorite little Forever 29 bracelet that has made an appearance in several of my posts.)

Next, I just played around with all the beads and just arranged them in patterns I liked. 
Break the rules. Go crazy.

All you have to do is hotglue a small magnet on the back and it's officially a magnet!

 I did a few mirrors with beads on top, some single beads, and some piles of beads all glued on top of one another. And then, to take it up a notch, added the beads from my bracelet. 
All together, they make quite the group.

And now I can leave little love notes on the fridge for Jesse. 



Thanks for stopping by today ya'll!

  6. The magnets are adorable and the idea can be adapted to a bunch of other craft supplies. Just wanted to mention that I recently found your blog, and spent the greater part of the last week and a half reading every post - you are really creative, and I love so many of your projects. After many failed spray paint attempts, I finally successfully sprayed a pair of crown molding-type shelves (that I got at the thrift store for $1.50 each and have seen everywhere for $20). I'm almost ready to try a (small)piece of furniture! hanks for all your hard work and time invested. dyan

  7. Fantastic, Virginia! I LOVE these. Your post is so timely, because I'm in the process of purging my house of all unnecessary items as we prepare to relocate, and I've got a box of old, old jewelry that I didn't just want to toss out (some of it is family vintage stuff that is broken and missing stones, etc). Now I know exactly what to do with it. I'm going to make "sassy" magnets and give them to my DIL and granddaughter as gifts. Can't wait to get settled and start my new project. Thank you so much!

  10. Virginia, you are so creative! How pretty these are! We just moved and I didn't want to use my old ugly magnets on my new fridge. Now I'll make my own new ones! Every fridge needs some bling! Thanks!
